Celebrate all creatures big and small this holiday

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Unwrap tangled turtles from discarded fishing nets, deliver a festive feast to a recently freed bear and give stray dogs comfort and joy this holiday.  You can do all this and more with a World Animal Gift from World Animal Protection. 

We all know the important role animals play in our lives.  Our pets become part of the family, millions of the world's poorest people depend on animals for their lives and livelihoods, and we consider our precious wildlife a vital part of the ecosystem we all share.   

Isn't this the perfect time of year then, to celebrate every creature big and small?  Give gifts of love, freedom and compassion by giving a charitable World Animal Gift this holiday.

Make little hearts flutter with joy – just $15 can give 4 hens a healthier life.  Instead of a bottle of wine for the party host, why not help hens strut their stuff.

Fill furry bellies – for $32 you can keep a rescued bear as full and satisfied as you will be this holiday season    

Create a big splash – some gifts shouldn't be tied up with string. Banish old fishing nets and lines and make the ocean a safer place for our whales for $35

Really get tails wagging – help vaccinate a pooch a day against rabies and save the lives of 365 dogs in the developing world for just $365.

See more proof of the joy these great gifts can bring to animals and gift givers alike.  Because really, when was the last time you got this excited about giving a scarf?
