Did you know that you can help animals no matter how old you are? There are millions of dogs, cats, bunnies, and other animals in need of homes all over the U.S., and there are so many ways for you to help them.
Take my daughter Cheyenne for example. She and her best friend raised over $100 by making slime and selling it to their friends. The girls making the slime was not always the cleanest of projects and I had to put my OCD in control while they made their products, but it was all for a good cause. They went out and bought pet food and some supplies and donated it to our local SPCA.
I have heard of another way to drum up funds was donating your birthday. Kids can elect to ask for donations for their charity in lieu of gifts. Now, that is a win-win in my book!
If you can do it, try fostering a pet.
There are so many animals in need of a safe temporary place to hang out while they recover from an illness or injury, and some puppies and kittens need a quiet place to grow, away from the busy animal shelter. If you can commit your time and resources to fostering an animal, you’ll be helping two animals—the one you take into your home and another one who will get a place in the shelter.
