A couple of the PetSmart Charities grant programs have fast-approaching deadlines:

Deadline: 30 June 2017

Keeping Pets and Families Together: This grant is dedicated to providing support through life’s toughest moments by creating resources for families facing homelessness, victims and survivors of domestic violence, and/or military leave that would enable them to keep their pet. https://www.petsmartcharities.org/pro/grants/keeping-pets-families-together

More millennial blaming… ugh. 

I object to the assumption/implication/inference in this article that millennials’ parents are baby boomers. 

Not true. 

I’m the parent of a “millennial” and my generation did not cause this economic situation and are also victims of those who ‘came before’. :-/

‘Psychologically scarred’ millennials are killing dozens of industries — and it’s their parents’ fault
