Humane societies, shelters and rescues are almost always short on funds, supplies and equipment.  They are non-profit societies and most who work there make minimum wage or volunteer their time.  Do you want to help dogs or cats who don’t have a home?  Here are some ideas for you.

  • Volunteer at your local humane society walking dogs
  • If you have the skills, offer free training services to humane societies or local rescues
  • Donate money if you don’t have the time to volunteer
  • Consider being a foster parent to homeless dogs.  Contact local rescues and see if they need foster parents.
  • See what equipment your local humane society needs.  For instance, here is the list for my local humane society:  http://www.michiganhumane.org/site/PageServer?pagename=donate_wishList

To find the contact information for your local humane society, check your phone book or do a search on the internet containing the words (your city name) and humane society.  To find rescue groups you’ll find a complete list at www.petfinder.com.

Any questions?  Let me know.  Just comment on this post and I’ll do my best to help you.
