How you can help animal shelters
Sponsor an animal. Basically you choose a permanent animal and give money to the animal shelter to help feed and keep it healthy
Newspapers, animal shelters use it to lay on some cage floors.
Blankets or towels these are used as bedding for pup's and kitten's.
Offer your time as a volunteer helper walking the dogs for example.
Organize a sponsored event i.e. walk, run, swim, dog walk etc.
Sanctuaries can always use the help of an electrician, carpenter, builder etc.
Any spare building materials, wood, nails, screws, bricks, cement, fencing.
Animal sanctuaries always have open days offer to run the tea stall.
Cages and kennels if they are in good condition animal shelters will have them.
collars, leads, jackets, reins, saddles, animal toys, any thing like this in good condition will save them having to buy it out of precious funds.
The best way to find out what they need is to ring them and ask.
Do you have a vehicle and some spare time some sanctuaries need this help to transfer animals and donated goods.
