5 Free Ways to Help Animals In Need

In this economy a good many people are barely sustaining their family’s needs and are desperate to save their pets. A vast majority of wonderful animals are ending up in shelters. These shelters and rescue groups are overwhelmed with a lack of space, volunteers and money. There are over 3 MILLION pets being euthanized each year in the United States alone. There are so many ways you can help for FREE!

1- Donate needed items. Contact your group of choice to find out what is on their wish list .Collect items from friends, co-workers, etc. Besides the obvious items think of additional items such blankets, sheets, newspapers and towels-even paper towels will help. Go to the pet food sites and request free samples. Check with your local food store to find when they will have any food/items as samples.

2- Volunteer your time. Almost anyone can help with walking dogs, cleaning cages, answering phones, paperwork, etc. to help out. If you can talk on the phone you can help follow up with adoptions or make appointments for low cost spay and neuter clinics. You can also help by picking up donated food that the donator cannot deliver. You can volunteer your talent. For instance, if you are a photographer you can help take photos and post them in the shelter or on a rescue site. Sponsor a car wash with money donated to the group. If you don't know what you can do, many are willing to train you how to help.

3- Connect on social media sites. “Like” your local rescue groups and post their notices about adoptions or events. Add a notice to your site about your shelters adoptable pets and their feature pets. Send it to all your contacts in every one of your social sites. You can also check the lost and found site on PetFinder. Post to your social sites to try to help find an animal’s way home.

4 - Start a "Animal Friends Club". There's power in numbers. Your office, religious or hobby group can have a yard sale or gather donations of money or needed items to help

5- Join an Online Rescue site. The Animal Rescue Site is so easy & free. All you have to do is CLICK to donate bowls of food to shelters. Google other sites in your area where you can donate your time & efforts. Neighborhood Cats has a program (TNR) trap/neuter/return. It's efforts help control the feral cat population. After neutering, cats are returned to their colonies and get food and shelter from volunteers.

Most animal lovers will do everything in their power they can to help, when they can. If you find yourself in a position to add a new pet to your life, please adopt from either a shelter or rescue group.

Four more paws only brings more music into your soul and more love into your life!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO ALWAYS SPAY AND NEUTER!
