Give the gift of giving back – Donate or Volunteer for a Local Non-Profit Like The TNR Project

The greatest gift is giving to those in need this holiday season. Finding a non-profit that supports a cause you believe in, or gifting time or money in a friend or loved-one’s name is a wonderful way to spread peace and joy year-round.

We were inspired to include this on our Short List by our Executive Assistant, Liz, whose passion and enthusiasm for helping cats in need in the greater-LA area has shown us how one person really can make a real difference.

Why we love them:

The TNR Project saves cats who are left behind, dumped, abused, and abandoned. By TNR (trap-neuter-return), we can humanely control the stray & feral cat over-population crisis. Gift animals in need this holiday season by donating to/volunteering for The TNR Project!
