Raising Funds For Local Animal Shelters
Ask and You shall Receive...If done properly
This is a subject near and dear to my heart and I know I do not stand alone as it is near and dear to the hearts of many.
There are any number of things you can do to help your local animal shelter stay afloat,in the depressed economy we find ourselves in today we are finding a lot of animal shelters in rural areas are having to close.May I suggest Volunteer Management ..
The Humane Society does wonderful works for animals in need in communities all over the world,you may find a lot of information about volunteer management, and all you need to do is ask, they have programs, information,and assistance available they are willing to provide guidance in hopes that one day this necessary shelter will be available to house animals that need aide,yes,even in your area.
However In rural areas I have known of animal activist that get together and form their own chapters these little known activist or advocates have bake sales,dog shows,pet fairs, and all sorts of events that the proceeds are donated to animal shelters or donated to someone on a local level that takes care of strays when there is not an animal shelter in their community.
We do not have to sit idly by and wait for a animal shelter to pop up,and hope that someone else will get one started, go to the meeting for concerned citizens,county commissioners meeting,city hall etc.
Get the ball rolling yourselves..The ball is in your court,the animals that have through no fault of their own become homeless may be counting on you .
