If ya readin’ this page, ya know that ya luv your animals an probably all animals. Ya probably wish you could help em all, but there’s only so much room in your house so ya can’t take em all home. So, what can ya do? Well, a lot really. I’m sure there’s at least one animal shelter near ya and they always need help. There’s a whole slew o ways ya can help.
Help Animals in Need: Ways to Donate to Your Local Shelter
Well, ya knew we were gonna start here, right? It’s fast an easy. Most of em have a place right on their website thingy that ya can give em money from. Click the button, save the receipt an ya can use that at tax time. Some of em will even let ya set up a payment that comes out every month if’n ya want.
Goin’ to fundraisin’ events is another way ya can help em out. Sometimes it’s a fancy pants meal or a walk-a-thon – the money they make goes to help the shelter and that helps the animals!
Maybe ya don’t feel comfortable givin’ money or ya can get the hookup on lots of cheap food. Well, usually ya can give stuff right to the shelter. They usually always need cat food, dog food, bowls to put it in, beddin’ for cats, dogs and rodents, crates, unused toys, leashes, harnesses, collars – if an animal can use it, your shelter probably needs it! Get a hold of your shelter and ask em what they need. It might be that they even shelter livestock so they even need hay an stuff like that.
Donate Your Stuff
Some shelters even have shops that they sell stuff that gets donated to em and use the money for stuff they need. The Humane Society usually takes donations this way. You can help animals and get rid of stuff you don’t need – all at the same time!
Donate Your Time
Last an not least, pretty much every shelter there is always needs more help. This is what my Lady does each week! Dogs need walkin’, cats need playin’ with, all them furry friends make messes that need to be cleaned up. If ya have certain kinds of book learnin’, they can use help with almost everything – teachin’ other people that wanna help, findin’ new people to help, makin’ sure everythin’ that needs to be done gets done.
If you wanna help animals or just wanna help the area ya live in, think about giving your time, money, or stuff to your local shelters!
