Today is Dog Day, a perfect occasion to celebrate the bond between human and canine. Dogs bring love and many benefit into the lives of humans, and this is a great day to show the dogs in your life some extra love. Also, please consider pitching in to help the numerous homeless dogs around the country and around the world.
Helping shelter animals doesn’t have to be expensive. Many rescues and shelters ask for blankets, towels, dog and cat food, treats, and toys. Many also encourage the public to come over and donate a few minutes to play with a lonely dog.
Large numbers of shelter pets are scared and starved for human attention, and even if you can’t take the pet home, helping with some socialization can make a world of difference.
Another great way to help shelter animals is sharing their posts on social media. It’s completely free, and clicking the “share” button only takes a couple of seconds. Wouldn’t it be great if you shared an animal, one of your friends saw it, and this simple process could save a life?
