How to Help Dogs and Cats Awaiting Adoption

If you want to help give homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens a better life, consider donating pet items to your local animal shelter or humane society. Or, consider a gift of a whole care package. A shelter can be a very stressful place for dogs and cats, and they need items that will bring them comfort and help pass the time until they find someone to take them home and love them.

 
You could also give a nice “starter kit” for new pet owners, which could work as an incentive for potential adopters. Most shelter pets get spayed or neutered and vaccinated before being adopted, but the new owner still has a lot of supplies to buy. If the shelter had some homemade starter kits from experienced pet owners to give to people wanting to adopt, it may just help make that pet adoption decision a little easier.

 
Before going to the time and expense of making a care package or starter kit, contact your local shelter or humane society and find out what they are in need of. Someone may have just donated a stack of blankets, and what they really need are chew toys. It’s important to make sure what you give is needed, and that they are able to use it.
