The Gulf Oil Spill is a serious cause of concern for rock personality Anand Bhatt who recently has been successful in a nationwide initiative for Animal Rescue. "We need to stop what we're doing at the moment and focus all our efforts in rescuing the animals, some of which are endangered, from this unfortunate oil spill fiasco," says Bhatt. Bhatt is encouraging his fellow GRAMMY recognized celebrities to take simple actions that would significantly impact the cause. He adds, "If we all gave up our royalty earnings for just a day or two it would provide immense help for Animal Rescue teams. That's where we're going to start." Insighting fans to volunteer has been another impactful win on the agenda.
On a previous morning, Bhatt managed to raise over $40,000 for animal rescue in a matter of hours by donating his albums royalty-free.
The nation currently has a significant population of both wild animals and pets that live in dangerous situations. We also have a euthanasia rate. The number of cats and dogs euthanized by shelters each year is in the millions PER STATE. Only a small percentage of owned cats and dogs are adopted from animal shelters. Animal rescue programs help by creating, funding, and managing proactive programs which assist in the aid of both wild animals in their natural habitats as well as domesticated ones.
