Simple to Donate

Not many know how simple it can be to help animal shelters when it can be as easy as posting a quick message on Facebook. People donate their possessions, skills, and even their time, which sometimes can be the most invaluable. Whether you’re good at quilting, crocheting, a master of words, or have all the time in the world, you can help out so much. No matter what you donate, you can help make the biggest change.

Many animal shelters are in need of items such as blankets, beds, food, bowls, and other household items. Sneak a peek in those unopened storage containers and see if you have anything you could donate that you won’t miss. You have a pet bowl you haven’t seen in months? Feel free to get it out for spring cleaning and donate it to a nearby animal shelter!

Have a knack for crafts? Feel free to lookup whether a nearby animal shelter needs blankets, beds, or toys. Fabric beds are easy to make with just two pieces of soft cloth and stuffing. So many sites are dedicated to making these simple gifts that not only give you great satisfaction in making it yourself but also help so many animals.

Only have a few free minutes in the day but you still want to help out in some way? A few words here and there will make all the difference. Online campaigns, Facebook support pages, and informational websites are great in raising awareness to millions. Shelters need to spread the word out and can always use someone who knows their way around a keyboard. Even if it’s only reblogging a post about spaying pets, a Facebook like about donating, or a Twitter reminder about a shelter event in the area, it makes a difference.

The most important thing is to remember not to underestimate what help you do give. Just by giving an effort, you’re already helping the world of animal shelters by showing support that helps fuel the morale machine. Be proud of what you do and never underestimate how much your help matters!
