Tuesday’s Tails Blog Hop: Ways You Can Help

So glad you are joining me today for the Dogs N Pawz Blog Hop called Tuesday’s Tails!  New posts go up on Tuesday but you can link up and post when you want all week-long.  The whole purpose is to feature cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, etc. so when you link up is up to you!  Even pets from PetFinder, are fine.  Let’s just get them all homes!

Dogs N Pawz said “I also want to encourage all of you to share each other’s Tuesday’s Tails posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and whatever other social media channels you use.  The more we share the more likely we are to get the word out!”

Something a little different today – not a adoption listing but other ways you can help.

13 Creative Ways to Help Animal Shelters You Probably Didn’t Know

Wendy Frink

1. Transport animals. Dogs can’t drive, so they need someone to take them places. And sometimes that drive can be a long one. Volunteer to take a dog to its foster home or forever home. Sometimes it can be a couple hours or just a leg in an eight hour drive. For those in cities where the main mode of transportation is bus or train, this is especially helpful.

 

2. Dust off that sewing machine. If you can sew a straight stitch, you can help! Follow thistutorial on how to make a bed from an old sweater. Or help sew “privacy curtains” for shy animals. Check with your local shelter to see if they need anything.

3. Take photos. Whether you are a professional or amateur photographer, shelters and rescues can benefit immensely from great photography. So grab your camera, some props and get those dogs out of their kennels. You can even hold photography workshops for shelter volunteers so they can take the best photos of their animals as possible. If you’re feeling very generous, donate old camera equipment to a shelter.

4. Spring clean. Donate towels and sheets you don’t use anymore. Shelters are always in need. Bonus points for gently used beds, collars, leashes and clothing.

5. Go shopping. Find out what your favorite shelter or rescue needs. It could be leashes, food, or cleaning supplies. Use sites like Amazon or Wag and send the donation directly to them.

6. Submit a pup-related cause to BarkFund or sign a shelter up for the Bark & Co. shelter and rescue program. Recently Bark & Co. started a program called “BarkFund” where we give out grants to a different dog in need each week. There’s also our shelter and rescue initiative where we have different campaigns where we donate 10% of profits to pups in need.

7. Throw a party! Lenny the pug throws a birthday party every year. He asks for donations or gifts like harnesses, eye drops, etc for his pug friends at Curly Tail Pug Rescue. If you throw your kid(s) a birthday party, ask for dog beds, blankets or collars instead (clear this with your kid!)

8. Get creative. Lend your graphic design, coding or writing skills to help with a shelter’s website, social media or newsletter efforts. Running a shelter takes a lot of work and things like this are often put on the back burner.

9. Social good. Use social media to get the word out. Share tweets or postings about missing animals or an animal that needs a home. Hamilton Pug will put up a custom message in exchange for a donation to pug rescue and The Bumblesnot runs his own Zazzle shop and donates all the proceeds to shelters and rescues.

 

10. Bookkeeping. Are you an accountant that can help a shelter or rescue with their books? Experience in non-profits is especially helpful.

11. Foster. Do you have room for a temporary pet? Fostering can be fun, rewarding and challenging. By opening your home to a dog, you are opening up a spot in a shelter that otherwise wouldn’t exist. The length of a foster can be a couple of days, weeks or months. Every shelter is different, but they usually cover medical expenses and sometimes food and supplies. Click here for more information on fostering.

12. Grab a hammer. If you’re handy at all, you can help by making repairs, painting or building furniture for the animals.

13. Donate funds. Shelters and rescues could always use more money.

Any other ideas, be sure to add in the comments! ❤

My local shelter has blocked the ability to save the pictures of their animals, for some strange reason.  I posted a question on their Facebook page, but this week I will feature Tootsie from the next county.

TOOTSIE

Labrador Retriever Mix: An adoptable dog in Laurel, MD

*Courtesy Posting*
Hi, I am a sweet older girl looking for my forever home. My last owner had me for the last 8 yrs and recently decided I was disposable. I am currently being illegally harbored in a one bedroom apartment with another dog, We don’t like each other very much and it has made for a highly stressful environment. I love children, and miss my 4 yr old little girl. I would love if my forever home had kids!! I am very gentle and laid back. I am crate trained, know basic commands and am up to date on all my vaccines. I am about 10 yrs old, spayed and weigh about 65lbs. If you or anybody else would like to help my dream come true please contact Heather at 410-703-5018 ASAP. This is a time sensitive matter and the clock is ticking.

Love and Licks,  Tootsie

Let’s hop to it!  Today we are featuring Kitty.  How any one can give up a 12-year-old is so sad to me, but maybe her owners were old or sick or could not care for her.  She has a lot of living left to do.  Please consider her.
