Many people think that cuddling dogs or feeding the cats are the only ways to help animals in rescue or shelters. Consider the many talents that a shelter or rescue organization could benefit from.
Here are a few ideas to consider to help animals in need in your area:
1. Find your local animal shelter or rescue organization. You can just do a google search, or use websites such as http://www.petfinder.com to help you locate them.
2. If you only have 5 minutes, there are many organizations which have Amazon wish lists setup. It’s easy to go online and purchase products that they are in need of. To get you started, here’s a link to Best Friends Animal Society’s wish lists: https://bestfriends.org/donate/other-ways-give/wish-list
3. If you have hours of time to give, most local rescues and shelters allow for volunteers. Volunteer activities can include the more traditional activities, like walking dogs or feeding the animals, to social media assistance or office-type work that must get done.
There are many ways to help depending on your time and talents!
