Included are Internet-based virtual clubs, WebRings devoted to the subject and clubs where members meet face-to-face.
Programs that accept pet food, water and food dishes, leashes, crates and other pet-related supplies, and keep them for use in their own program or donate them to other nonprofit organizations for their own use or for distribution to the people they serve.
