Deserving shelter animals are getting the royal treatment in Kansas City! And by "Royal" treatment, I mean that provided by the dog loving, adoption supporting, major league baseball players on THE Kansas City ROYALS!
As we all know, the deserving animals that abound in city shelters and rescue groups nationwide need as many of us to speak for them as possible! If we don't who will? So when heavy-hitters like The Royals speak up as advocates of adoption- animals are saved! Whether you are a baseball fan, a Kansas City native or a critter lover in general- the efforts of these compassionate players and their families are sure to save lives!
At this very moment, thousands of wonderful, cats, dogs, bunnies, birds and other homeless animals are eagerly waiting to become your best friend. Many are former family pets and are already trained. These furry souls are up to bat with only one shot left at a home run.
Won't you team up with the Royals, and other compassionate professional athletes, and speak on their behalf? Even if you can't adopt or foster, you can "Twitter a Critter" or feature adoptable animal profiles on your Website, Face Book page or other social networking venues.

P.S. Sending a big Woof and congrats to shelter animal advocates, David and Kelly Backes, as David Backes was just chosen to be captain of The St. Louis Blues! Besides being an amazing hockey player, David (and wife Kelly) work tirelessly on behalf of homeless animals- needless to say, many furry paws are applauding this great news!
