Send a Card, Save a Dog

The North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization, is selling adorable e-cards with Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, and seasons greetings messages—with proceeds going  to save dogs and cats. The League has already rescued more than a million animals and is now in the thick of helping dogs and cats displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

If you’re one of those organized people who’s already sent out all your cards (and, oh yeah, you’ve probably bought and wrapped all of your gifts, too) , you might consider a 2013 Mutt-i-grees calendar, with a story and photo for every month of the year. That’s a serious amount of cuteness and inspiration for $20.
