Aid a Nearby Animal Shelter 3 Ways
- Check out the website of your local shelter to see if they have a wish list. Shelters often have specific needs – like these from the Sequoia Canine Society in California and the Women's Humane Society in Pennsylvania – so browse their list to see if there is anything you can bring in. Some items are small or simple, such as yogurt or puppy treats.
- Have a little extra time but no extra cash? Offer to volunteer your time and energy at the shelter. But don't think you'll just be scooping poop – shelters often need someone to walk and play with the pups (oh rats, right?). They can also use volunteers during fundraising events, too.
- Can't spare the time? Cash donations are always welcome. Most no-kill shelters receive no funding from the government or The Humane Society of America, so a little cash can go a long way for your local animal shelter
Need a few ideas on what to give? Consider some of the items available from Doggie Diva, such as the Eco Nap dog mat that can provide shelter pups a cozy spot to sleep. For toys, one of our doggie toys or a warm & cozy dog sweaterwill be perfect.
