How To Help Shelter Dogs?
If you are looking for a way to help local shelter or animal rescue, the good news is that they are always in need of volunteers! You don’t have to be a dog expert if you want to get involved. If you have some extra time during weekends to walk some furry fellas, that is already a huge help. Here are some tips about how to help shelter dogs.
Many shelters don’t have enough transportation. As a volunteer, you may drive the animals between the shelters, to the vet, to their foster parents, or maybe to their new forever home.
Be A Foster Pet Parent
Lots of shelters and rescues are usually in need of fostering animals. If you are not able to adopt, you still can foster. If you have time and extra space at home, or even if you are already a pet parent, still consider letting a homeless dog temporarily enter your home. Each rescue center and shelter handles fostering differently. Some allow you to take the canines home, while others may only let you walk the furry fellas.
Donate Items To Your Local Shelter
Rescues and shelters are always in need of food, treats, and toys. We at TruDog have an incredible variety of foods and treats with natural ingredients that may help these poor canines to stay healthy. At the TruDog shop, you can also find toys, feeder bowls, and training accessories to donate. (3, 4)
