Do you ever feel like you just want to do something, anything to help address the plight of homeless animals? Does it just seem too daunting? After all, you can't bring home another pet, can you? You don't really have the money to make a huge donation to your local shelter. Does that mean you just toss up your hands, turn your back and hope that someone else steps up? Not at all! There are small steps you can take to assist your local shelter that can make a difference in the lives of the pets that are there awaiting a furever home.
Here are seven things you could do today (or this week!) to help homeless pets:
- Make a donation. Call your local shelter and ask them what is on their wish list. They could be seeking items you have around the house: old towels, paper towels, cleaning supplies, bags of dog or cat or rabbit food, mops, brooms, litter boxes. Ask what they need and see what you have around the house that you could donate or start clipping coupons when you go grocery shopping and pick up some cleaning products and make a donation when you do your weekly shopping.
