I attend Berlin-Milan Middle School and I'm in eighth grade. I love animals. When I was little, if there was an animal that was hurt, I would take it to an animal shelter.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals by itself can't save all the animals. If you volunteer, it will make a big difference. Also, it will make you feel so good you are saving lives. I want more people to volunteer for the ASPCA.

It's hard to find time but if you will make an effort it will make a big difference in the world. It tells the ASPCA someone cares about the animals and not just themselves. Animals don't know you are saving their lives, but you will be thankful you saved a life.

There is a dog in Afghanistan named Rocky and he is saving countless U.S. troops from suicide bombers. There are many ways to get involved to save animals. You can volunteer, organize a fundraiser, adopt an animal or join the education movement. Start learning about the many ways you can help animals across the globe right now.

If you see animal cruelty, call the shelter or take it into your own hands. Tell whoever abuses the animal to stop. If they don't stop, tell them you will call the ASPCA at 740-420-2984.

Volunteers are needed everywhere. Get started by finding a shelter near you and contact them and see what they say.

They need more room for the animals. Perhaps you can foster an animal.

I want more people to volunteer for the ASPCA. Won't you join me?
