If you’re a cat person like me, you are probably always looking for ways to help cats of the world. But how can you help animal shelters when you just can’t adopt any more cats? Here are 5 easy ways to help animal shelters and cats!
If you’re an animal lover, chances are you have a pet or two at home. I really couldn’t imagine not having a cat in the house. And just because we have two already doesn’t mean we don’t visit the adorable rescue cats at PetSmart and local animal shelters. I always walk away longing to bring one home, but I know we just can’t add another to the house right now. Whether you’re like me and at your cat capacity, or can’t adopt because you’re renting or even have someone with pet allergies, there are still ways you can help animal shelters and cats!
Get the word out.
This used to be accomplished by posting fliers, but thanks to the internet and social media, it’s even easier to get the word out about animals that need a home. Like local animal shelters on Facebook and share their statuses when they have pets looking for a home or may be in need of certain supplies.
Volunteer at a shelter
Shelters are always needing an extra hand, even a petting hand! Yes, in some shelters you can even volunteer to simply pet or play with the animals. It helps get them ready for a loving home and I guarantee you’ll feel good about doing your part to help too.
Buy Cat’s Pride Cat Litter
That might sound a little crazy at first, but wait until you hear what Cat’s Pride® is doing to help animal shelters and cats all across the country. As a part of the Litter For Good initiative, for every green jug of Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® purchased, Cat’s Pride is donating cat litter to shelters in need. For each jug purchased, you’ll add another pound to the growing total!
You can help add to this amazing total by picking up a green jug at your local Walmart, just like I did! You can also help by signing up for the free Cat’s Pride Club and nominating your local shelter to receive a litter donation.
Donate supplies for animal shelters
While we have the cat litter covered thanks to the Litter for Good initiative, shelters are often in need of household items like blankets and sheets. Instead of just tossing them in the trash or selling in a yard sale, consider donating them to a local shelter. You can even hold a donation drive or ask for cat supplies for a shelter in lieu of birthday gifts!
Just because you can’t adopt any more cats, doesn’t mean you can’t make a difference in their sweet, furry lives. You can do one or all of these ideas to help impact animal shelters and cats.
Join me [and Bella and Frosty] in helping millions of cats across the country just by purchasing Cat’s Pride litter at your local Walmart. Get even more information on this amazing initiative here.
