Although the election campaigning has left some Americans feeling divided, there’s one campaign this week that everyone can get behind.

You guessed it. This week is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week (launched in 1996 by The Human Society of the United States), and there are many different ways you can show appreciation for your local animal shelter in this special week of recognition, from donating a few dollars to organizing an appreciation event in your community.
