Raising Funds For Local Animal Shelters

Updated on May 4, 2011

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 .

      Too bad your local shelter was closed, though I can understand how difficult it must be to staff with volunteers in a small town or low-population area. I'll bet you do your part anyway, jorja, by taking in strays and helping find homes for them. You have a good heart, and that's what it takes to help animals. JAYE

      Dear Jorja,

      I got my Chrissy a few days before Christmas last year due with pups anyday. We found home for the pups and we found the best dog. The shelters need help so much. I had donated things but your hub is a great reminder that we can do more.

      Hey Jorja!! Both my rescues were vaccinated, spayed and neutered at the Spartanburg humane society shelter.

      It's one of the better shelters I've ever seen. A real community service if you ask me.

      If only everyone would spay or neuter our 4 legged furry friends would be so much better off! Thumbs up for this PSA Jorja!!!
