One Small Mouse ~ A New Animal Welfare Blog

One Small Mouse is a new blog started by Serena Cowdy, journalist, presenter and owner of Folksy shop The Copper Swallow.
As Serena puts it "One Small Mouse unites people who care about animals with the good causes that need their help."

The aim of the blog is to highlight how we can all help our local animal rescue centres and the wildlife of Britain without necessarily having to dip our hands in our pockets : "It could be as simple as giving your old newspapers to your local pet rescue, counting the birds in your back garden or re-tweeting an urgent re-homing request."

The blog has various sections covering helping pets, helping wildlife, items needed and a section called campaign for change. There's some very useful information about animal charities offering reduced rates for microchipping pets, how you can apply for a grant from the Community Wildlife programme and how you can get involved in the campaign to stop bull-fighting in Catalonia.

One Small Mouse will also post appeals from animal charities and non-profit organisations who are looking for local volunteers, bedding materials or have a "difficult" animal to re-home.

Amongst the many informative posts there's a really interesting article here about how an American animal charity has found a free way to support homeless animals ~ ingenious!

I think the blog is a great idea and wish Serena much success in highlighting how we can all help even in the smallest way.

Visit One Small Mouse to find out how you can help your local homeless animals and wildlife now!
