9 Ways to Indirectly Help Shelter and Rescue Animals
“I could never foster. I’d want to keep them all.” “My heart breaks just walking into a shelter, so I could not volunteer there.” These are just two of the many reasons I hear from people who care about animals, but can’t directly help with fostering or volunteering at a shelter. I truly wish more people would get over those reasons. Animals are my ultimate passion in life (so much so that I am even vegan). I get super emotional when it comes to animals, including ones I’ve never met. There have been plenty of fosters that were so hard to give up. However, you learn to work around those emotions or you just realize it’s a selfless act. Learn about my volunteer/rescue story here.
If you still don’t think you can stomach fostering or volunteering in a shelter, there are plenty of other ways you can help indirectly. Plus, I know some people want to help in those ways, but cannot due to schedule, lifestyle, and other factors out of their control. I’m a big believer that doing something is better than nothing. Imagine if we all did a small something. We could make so much progress in the world. So here are nine ways you can easily help rescues or shelters without fostering or volunteering within the facility.
