What do Lolipop, Gummy Bear, Jimmy, Tank Girl and Muffin all have in common? They are pocket pets awaiting forever homes. Yes, MN Pocket Pet Rescue is a real thing.
Seriously, it doesn't get any cuter than this. If you don't have a date tonight (or even if you do) spend some quality time with this website. Be prepared to smile from ear to ear.
If you aren't quite ready to adopt, find out what Pocket Pet Rescue needs on HeroSearch.org/Search to care for the critters while they are waiting for homes. Then, do whatever you can to meet them by dropping off donations or at an event because it will make your day!
In the US, millions of pounds of usable supplies – from medical items like gowns and gloves to other items like school supplies and construction equipment – are thrown away every year. Meanwhile, the rural poverty rate in rural Bolivia is up to 94%, and the most basic supplies are not available for residents in these isolated communities.
Mano a Mano collects donated supplies in the US and ships them to Bolivia, where they are distributed to Mano a Mano’s network of clinics, other hospitals & clinics, other nonprofit organizations, and individuals in need from throughout the country.
Last year, dozens of organizations from around the Bolivia traveled to Mano a Mano to receive donated supplies; some had traveled 2 and a half days to attend. Many individuals came to receive wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, and braces.
