Help for pets

Coming into Christmas this year I want to do something for pets in rescue/foster care etc and was wondering would any of you like to come on board with this idea.

What can be done for poor animals in shelters? I've seen great stuff people do on Facebook with posting pictures of animals waiting to be adopted. This way everyone can help. Even if you can't adopt a dog or a cat yourself. Maybe one of your friends will?

I've also seen people collecting not money but cat/dog food on the streets, or outside supermarkets. Just think how much our home pets eat and how little is needed to help a homeless animal. Food for thought:)

Social Work

Social work is a professional and academic discipline committed to the pursuit of social welfare and social change. The field works towards research and practice to improve the quality of life and to the development of the potential of each individual, group and community of a society. Social workers perform interventions through research, policy, community organizing, direct practice and teaching. Research is often focused on areas such as human development, social policy, public administration, program evaluation and international and community development. Social workers are organized into local, national, continental and international professional bodies. Social work, an interdisciplinary field, includes theories from economics, education, sociology, medicine, philosophy, politics, psychology, and as well as anti-oppressive and anti-racist discourse.
