Volunteer at your local humane society/animal shelter. Help find an animal a home (it feels great!)
Adopt a resident: many nursing homes have a program where you can "adopt" a senior citizen. Many residents do not have family or friends that visit and they are very lonely. Adopt a resident, bring some joy to their lives. Sometimes, animal organizations will have a pet therapy program. People volunteer to take (certified) pets to visit the elderly residents. It sure brightens their lives.
Pick it up!: If you see litter strown about on the ground, take a little extra time to pick it up and dispose of it properly. Help keep the land clean, it is better for both humans and animals.
Smile: Don't let the world see your frown, you never know when a smile will brighten someone's day.
Be sure to take the time to show your loved ones (humans and pets alike) how much you love them each day.
Treat each day as if it is your last; make friends, not enemies.
