Last month, we talked about ways to help pets during the holidays. Sadly, pets need help year-round, don't they?
So here are some easy ways you can help pets all year long. Some of these I've already mentioned in other posts... but some are new.
The concept of the shelter drive-by was so simple that it's worth doing year-round. Iams and the Helen Woodward Animal Center in California have a compiled a list of shelters across the country, and many have wish lists on their websites.
Find out what simple things the shelter by you needs -- hand sanitizer, kitty litter, paper towels, laundry detergent, that sort of thing. The next time you go to the store, pick up some things. Then just bring it by the shelter.
Ever heard of U Promise? The program came out about 10 years ago. Companies offered kickbacks for people who bought items using U Promise, and the money would go to college.
Adopt-a-Shelter is essentially the same thing, only it helps shelters.
Adopt-a-Shelter site. Every purchase made means a commission for the shelter you select. All the money goes to that shelter. So if you're shopping online anyway, why not make the extra step and help a shelter?
Play a game every day, and win free food for shelter dogs and cats. Freekibble.com is one of the most visited rescue donation sites on the web. And Halo Pets is the official sponsor, donating thousands of pounds of food every year to shelters and food banks around the world.
The Animal Rescue Site:
Another place were a simple click and help rescue animals get food. The Animal Rescue Site is a partner of Petfinder.com, the animal rescue site. Buying items from the site can also help.
Know any other sites that worth adding? Let me know and I will add them! I am keeping this post up year-round.
