Help From Home
There are so many ways you can help animals right from your home. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Sew Pads for Pets:
Do you love to sew? You can help make animals more comfortable by making pet pads from donated blankets, sheets, mattress pads and pillow cases. Refer to Pet Pad Instructions for sizes and instructions. If you are interested, contact our volunteer coordinator at 267-347-4674 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make Feathered Cat Toys:
Do you enjoy crafts? If you do then this is purr-fect! These easy to make, inexpensive toys are great fun for adoptable cats and kittens at the shelter. Feathered cat toys can also help pet parents bond with their newly adopted cat. Download the Feathered Cat Toy Instructions.
You can also hold a bake sale or have a food or pet supplies drive.
Perhaps most importantly spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter and animal adoptions! Pet over-population is wide spread community issue. No one person is the sole cause but many people can be part of the solution. Ask people to please spay and neuter their pets, cats especially. Every summer, shelters across the USA see an influx of kittens that compete with adult cats for homes. Every un-altered pet can contribute as many as 10-15 offspring yearly to the pet overpopulation problem. Prevention is worth a pound of cure. Help raise money to help a friend or neighbor get their pet spayed or neutered. Download this educational flyer about the Benefits of Spaying and Neutering.
