Celebrate all creatures big and small this holiday

TORONTO, Nov. 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Untangle turtles from discarded fishing nets, spring captive bears, save hundreds of dogs from a cruel fate and help elephants remain wild.  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 working 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?  You can give each of them a safer, happier and healthier future by giving a charitable World Animal Gift this holiday.

Help the small – 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.

Think a little bigger – When you can't be there to comfort a dog, send the next best thing–a vet visit for only $48.  A great option to give your own little pup. 

Go big this year – 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

Move the world for animals – A gift of $135 can provide 170 animals with essential medicine in the aftermath of a disaster.  Not everyone can say they saved a herd this holiday.
