Generous animals

Gift-giving this time of year shouldn’t be a tedious and stressful task. Feel good, instead, by forgoing gifting a frumpy T-shirt from Old Navy for the elegantly graphic designed “Cultivate Kindness” shirt from Mercy for Animals ($25 at Or give the hipsterworthy, turntable-cum-scratcher DJ Cat Scratching Pad from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ($39.99 at There are also model horse sets of the real-life wild horse Cloud and his herd for equine enthusiasts from The Cloud Foundation ($40 at, plus loads of books, videos, calendars, greeting cards, jewelry, hoodies and travel mugs at your (or your giftee’s) favorite animal-advocacy nonprofit. Be a generous animal by putting your money where your heart is!
