Our friends at www.petcentric.com are urging us to take time out of the busy holidays to reach out and help animals in need, right in our own community. Here's how you can help.
The holiday season is a time when we all come together with family and friends. We send greeting cards to those we have not seen for many years and take baked goods to neighbors with whom we rarely interact. Our thoughts transcend the worries and concerns of our everyday lives and focus instead on fellowship and service to others. For many, that fellowship extends to our pets, as well as all the abandoned and sheltered animals in our communities. Here are some of the many ways you can help animals in need over the holidays.
Volunteer Your Labor
Many people take vacation around the holidays leaving animal shelters and rescue facilities understaffed. This is a wonderful time to volunteer your labor to help animals in need.
Volunteer Your Professional Services
Animal shelters are in need of a lot of professional services that they cannot afford to pay for. If you are a professional in any of the following areas, your volunteered services to a shelter may be in great need.
Donate Items or Cash
Shelters are always in need of donations, both of money and essential items.
