Change A Pet's Life Is Today, January 24th
“Saving one pet won’t change the world, but for that one pet the world will change forever.” -- Anonymous
Did you know that when you adopt a pet from a pet shelter, you actually change and save two lives? The first is the life of the pet you adopted. The second is the life of the pet that takes the place of your new fur-ever friend in the shelter.
Change A Pet's Life Day was created by a group of animal lovers who wanted to recognize the hard work that shelter staff and volunteers do, as well as to encourage the adoption of shelter pets and to raise awareness about the challenges of animals in shelters.
8 Ways To Help "On Change A Pet's Life Day:"
- Adopt a pet at your local shelter. (Many shelters will waive adoption fees on Change A Pet's Life Day.)
- Volunteer to be a foster pet parent.
- Sponsor a shelter cat or dog at your local shelter.
- Make a monetary contribution to your local pet shelter.
- Donate needed items to your local pet shelter. Many shelters have wish lists of what they need on their websites.
- Volunteer at your local pet shelter.
- Thank pet shelter volunteers with a small gift.
- Get social and raise awareness about your local pet shelter and its fundraising events through your own social media posts.
