Please take action–it will take you just a few minutes to make phone calls/send emails: Tell President Bush and Governor Blanco that Animals Need Their Help
Other ways to help:
Donate to the Humane Society of the US
Donate to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (on a personal note, I cannot say enough good things about Best Friends. Located in Kanab, UT, they are the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the country–and maybe the world? Allen and I visited them four years ago and were blown away by the compassion they show animals in need).
