I Want To Help But I Can't. . .

There are so many reasons why people think they aren't able to help the animals. Money, personal situations, living arrangements, small children, medical needs, and many more. In many cases, there are a lot of ways people can help without even having to leave their homes.

Begin with sharing and networking these animals in need. Perhaps someone in your social circle will be able to help in some way. If your local shelter is overcrowded and under staffed, perhaps you can volunteer your time to help out there. Feeding animals, cleaning kennels, exercising and socializing dogs, or maybe even photographing the animals to help promote them on social media are all ways you can get involved. Hosting fundraisers, volunteering to help out at adoption events, transporting animals, doing home checks, or providing professional services (are you a graphic artist, lawyer, veterinarian, work at a pet supply company) are all ways to help out a rescue you admire, and in some cases you don't even have to live close by.

Of course, adopting, fostering, and donating if and when you can are always welcome. If you would like to donate to our rescue, you can do so here.
