    Sorry, I've never been one to be succinct...so four words is just impossible for me.

    It was fantastic to hear about the amazing work being done nationally by Pets of the Homeless | We Provide Food & Care for Pets of the Homeless and that amazing map that can be used as a resource to help the homeless and those who work with them to find resources in their area (you can let them know what your org does and they can add you to the map!) and to get help from Pets of the Homeless, too. Thank you for such a timely presentation!
