Shot At Life Logo Between 6 and 8 million dogs and cats are left at shelters each year, according to the Humane Society of the United States. Animals that are healthy, well-fed, and disease-resistant have much better odds of finding a happy forever home.

Preventable diseases like kennel cough or feline herpesvirus can stop an adoption in its tracks - not to mention being a danger to unprotected populations in the shelter. Although shelters try to meet the needs of their animals, they may not be able to afford a timely delivery of much-needed vaccinations.

That's where we come in. With your help, GreaterGood.org, Petfinder Foundation, and Boehringer Ingelheim are teaming up with the ambitious goal of vaccinating 2 million pets in just two years' time. We challenge you to help us give shelter pets a shot at life.

Marley, the little man no one wanted
In October 2004, my mom died. As you would expect, I was struggling and then one night my neighbor called and told me of a little dog she had seen posted on a rescue. She knew about the ...

Bobby with a Mohawk
About 6 weeks ago (today is 5/2/16), I heard loud crying at my back door. Opening the door, a young, muted tabby boy, though I didn't know his sex at the time, tried to waltz on in. Unfortunately, ...
