One day you’re out and about and you see your local humane society or shelter having an adoption event and they have animals or pictures setting out. You see the cutest little cat or dog but you know you can’t have them yet you want to help them. What can you do to help?
There are a couple different ways to help out in the animal community!
1. Donate! Every cent can make a difference, every pound of food can help, every little thing you donate can help a shelter/HS in a HUGE way! I personally had a donation drive on my 16th birthday. I raised a little over 600 dollars and got lots of food paper towels liter collers treats toys etc. Although I wish I could have raised more it still helped out the Owensboro Humane Society and my friends had a lot of fun!
2. Sponsor a pet! Ask them if they have a sponsoring program. You can give weekly monthly or yearly! say you want to give 10 dollars a month to a furbaby in need, that 10 dollars can help get them food pay vet bills and much more. Its kinda like a little bank account for each animal.
3. Volunteer!!! Most shelters/hs are in need of volunteers year round! Whether you’re cleaning a cat box or giving a belly rub it helps out. Volunteering is rewarding all in all. You know you’re doing a good thing & its fun! I’ve been volunteering with the Owensboro Humane Society for 3 years as of March and although its had its ups and downs I regret nothing. (Well maybe not adopting a cat or two but they have great homes now)
If you don’t have enough time to volunteer every now and then you can always visit the facilities and look around.
