Pet Parents: Ways to Return the Love & Help Animals in Need
We love our pets like family and personally, my family wouldn’t be the same without our 2 cats. In fact, my boys have never known life without them in it! It’s the same for so many pet owners out there. Animals give us so much joy, so I'm sharing a few ways we can return the favor and help other animals in need!
1. Volunteer at a local shelter.
You can pretty much count on finding at least one animal shelter or rescue in your community that could use an extra hand and you don’t have to dedicate hours and hours of your time! Even just a little time here and there can make a huge difference. This could even mean a fun moment spent with the animals, maybe walking the dogs or playing with the cats. The more people rescue animals come into contact with on a regular basis, the more adoptable they become.
2. Use pet products that have multiple benefits.
As a cat owner, you need a good quality kitty litter so why not choose one that also supports a great cause helping animals?
Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care is a revolutionary litter that delivers the ultimate performance, it’s 50% lighter and formulated with highly absorbent minerals and no fillers. You get a guaranteed 10 days of odor control, the strongest clumps and low dust and tracking.
It’s a fabulous litter AND the brand is doing something so great to support animals and their well being. They are partnering with award winning actress Katherine Heigl - the CEO of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. The
foundation’s mission is to eliminate the needless suffering inflicted on animals by human cruelty, indifference and ignorance and has helped improve the lives of over 25,000 animals since its inception.
Cat’s Pride is donating a portion of the sales of every Fresh & Light Ultimate Care purchase to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation to support their animal advocacy work so be sure to look for Ultimate Care in the green jug and visit catspride.com to find it at a store near you.
3. Spread the word through social media.
You’re already on social media sites and if you like a page like Cat’s Pride or the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, you can help it reach more potential volunteers or adoptive families. Simply liking, commenting and sharing posts helps to spread the word about everything from pet parenting tips, events and even needed supplies.
Just a little effort can go a long way in making life better for animals who could use some extra love out there!
