ANOTHER WAY TO GIVE BACK

Throughout the year, animal shelters across the world are in need of many different products, volunteers and of course, foster families! This holiday season give-back to an animal shelter near you.

HOW YOU CAN GIVE-BACK

- Do some house-cleaning and find some old items that the local shelter might be able to put to good use:
• Old towels
• Used bed linen
• Recycled paper and plastic bags
• Newspapers
• Office supplies
• Used pet toys

- Buy some items from your local pet-supply store to donate to the shelter:
• Pet toys
• Dog & cat beds
• Kennels & Crates
• Pet food and treats
• Dog leads and collars

- Take a look at your local animal shelter's website and buy items they need off their wish list

WHERE TO DONATE

- Make a donation to your local shelter. Here is a full list of animal shelters by state

- Other places to donate:
• Humane Society 
• ASPCA 
• World Wildlife Fund 
• Farm Sanctuary
Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary
HEART
Save The Chimps

PACKAGE YOUR DONATION

Think of your donation as gift-giving and find the best way to present it to your shelter. Combine all of your items in a basket or tote-bag. Remember, these baskets and bags can be re-used by the organization, too!
If your donation is small, take a look at our simple packaging ideas to get inspired and make your gift special.

WRITE YOUR GIFT CARD

It's important to teach children about giving-back through donations, but it is also necessary to make sure they understand exactly what they are donating to and why they are doing it.

Talk to your kids about the different products that you are donating and what they will be used for. Discussing the idea of donations and allowing them to understand that through giving, you are allowing these animals to live a warmer and more comfortable life, makes the process more meaningful for your kids.

Ask your child what they hope their donation will do for those animals
receiving it and let them write their message to the animals on their gift card.
