February is National Spay and Neuter month. Many people who are responsible pet loving and/or animal lovers can celebrate this effort by helping more animals survive, find loving homes and be given a second chance to live a happy life. There is something for everyone here to celebrate February pet spay and neuter month.
Contact your local shelter by looking them up on the Internet or in the phone book to discover how they need your help. Many "No Kill" shelters have many needs that can change the life of the residents in local shelters. You might be asked off site duties that you can perform saving the local shelter paid employee time. Employees have duties that a volunteer cannot do, however there are numerous tasks they can delegate to you when you offer your assistance. Any amount of time will be appreciated.You won't know exactly what they need until you ask. These activities can be done when you can fit them into your life.
If you are able to volunteer at your local shelter to play with kitties or perform any visiting task to help your animal shelter, they will be most grateful. Foster care for a mama and her puppies until they can be separated and given homes might be an event you can do for several weeks to provide a better beginning than shelter living for them all. Imagine celebrating spay and neuter month by volunteering at a "No Kill" animal shelter or becoming a foster parent on a one time or regular basis.There are lots of programs needing you to volunteer for one.
Local shelters at times have thrift stores or other revenue sources that you can work at to help in your own community. Find out how the funds for the shelter are raised and offer to be a part of that event. With your creative mind you can suggest some good ideas for the shelter to consider. Your resourcefulness will be warmly welcomed during spay and neuter month or anytime. Local shelters will gladly accept your time anywhere and in any way you are willing to give it. Pick and choose what you are willing to help with and the time frame that is acceptable by you.
Every local animal shelter needs supplies to keep the residents safe, healthy and content. Call your nearby facility during the spay and neuter month of February or anytime to help with items they can use. Towels, dog beds and kitty perches are only the beginning. Consumables are constantly needed and they can tell you what their needs are too. Some shelters sign up with online suppliers allowing people to contribute money toward needed itmes for the shelter.This is similar to the wedding registering for the up and coming bride and groom for their gift giving ideas. Ask the shelter if they are listed with any organization if you prefer to help celebrate spay and neuter month in that way.
Most local animal shelters organize fund raisers throughout the year or at least annually to support the needs of the facility. You can either donate money during those events or your time to assist the success of those activities. Offer to spread the word by composing a free or low cost ad in your local paper to advertise the events. Flyers can be distributed to bring people to fund raisers in support of spaying and neutering clinics held or refered to by the animal facility. These activities celebrate animal life all their lives and make the animals more adoptable too.
Helping make animals have a better life by spaying an neutering is part of what February is all about on the national level. Celebrating in any way will be so rewarding to you and so helpful for the animals at that facility you so warmly give of yourself.They all say woof and meow in thanks.
