Do you want to help homeless dogs, but you do not know where to begin? I have compiled a list of six ways that you can help animal shelters.
Most rescue centers do not receive government assistance. They rely on fundraisers and monetary donations. Find a reputable rescue center and donate some money. Your contributions will help save an animal’s life.
Rescue centers are constantly in need of supplies. They can always use pet food, old towels, blankets, toys, leashes, and collars. Contact your local center to discuss what they need today.
Shelters need people to walk dogs, clean kennels, and interview potential adopters. If you are a dog trainer or a veterinarian, consider donating some of your time and services.
There are many wonderful rescue centers that are falling apart. They just do not have the money to fix up their center. If you are a painter or are in construction donate your supplies and services to give the center a fresh and welcoming look. Do you enjoy interior design? Donate your time and skills to update their welcome room. There are many ways to volunteer. Call your local center today to discuss how you can help.
