Introduction:When people consider giving donations or volunteering, they often forget about the furry and feathered critters we share the planet with. There are many worthy and respectable animal shelters and rescues that are in dire need of donations. These are just a few things that animal shelters and rescues need.
Animal shelters and rescues need your time. Donate your time and volunteer. The list of things you can do to help is long. Perhaps try licking stamps or stuffing envelopes. For something more hands on, walk the dogs, brush the cats and offer to scoop poop. For the more ambitious volunteer, help organize a fund raising or public relations event.
Animal shelters and rescues need money. Donate any amount of money you can afford and rest assured it will be put to good use. Monetary donations help cover the cost of the employees, housing and feeding the animals and well as the medical care the animals may need. It also goes to cover utilities, maintenance costs and other bills.
Animal shelters and rescues need cleaning supplies. Donate cleaning supplies to your local animal organization. Bleach, carpet cleansers and laundry detergents are always needed. Dish soap, hand sanitizers and air fresheners are also in demand. Think of the cleaning supplies you use when cleaning your pet's areas and give accordingly.
Animal shelters and rescues need comfort items. Donate blankets, towels and toys. Animal treats are also need. Leashes, collars and harnesses are always in demand. Think of the items you use for your pets such as beds, carriers and the like. Remember, used is perfectly acceptable!
Animal shelters and rescues need food supplies. Donate dog and cat food. Remember that they provide a safe place for animals of all ages so puppy and kitten food is also needed. Orphaned babies need milk replacements. Don't forget about more exotic of pets they care for; donate food that can be fed to hamsters, ferrets and birds.
Animal shelters and rescues provide a wonderful service to animals and the community. Remember to donate to those organizations that help those animals without a voice. Most donations are tax-deductible. All donations will make you feel as if you are helping a great cause.
