I would like to add a link to the Animal Rescue Site, where clicking helps provide homeless animals food.  Can I add this link AND the statement "Feed Homeless Animals" ?

I would say no based in this statement from the help center......  unless of course, it is your personal website.

Advertisement or solicitation is not permitted in any member-contributed content on PBS, including the Discussion Forums and members' Forum sigs on PBS. (This does not include "advertising" your PBS bookshelf in the Book Bazaar.)

We will remove any links or other material which actively solicit for a commercial (or nonprofit) purpose. It is okay (an exception to the no-commercial-links policy)  to include a link to your personal webpage in your forum sig or public profile, even if your webpage is your business webpage; but there must be no accompanying soliciting text with the link. No links to other swapping sites, or any commercial sites, may appear in any member-contributed content on PBS--not in Forum sigs, nor Forum posts, nor PBS Profiles, nor PMs, nor the Eclectic Pen, nor Reviews or Book Tags.

Thanks, Shelly.  I knew there were some restrictions but wasn't sure exactly what they were.
