Your $1 = $2 for an Entangled Seal

Found with fishing net wrapped around his neck, Gooseneck was in a horrifying situation. Entangled animals like him are often weak, skinny and in urgent need of care.

Today, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar. That means you’ll be making twice as many meals and meds possible for an injured animal like Gooseneck.
