We’re coming to the end of National Shelter Appreciation Week, if you haven’t done anything to show your appreciation there’s still time.
The theme this year is “Shelters Rock!” Music stars, like Carrie Underwood, are getting in on the action and helping to spread the word.
Here’s five things you can do this weekend (or anytime) to help:
1 – Sport a Special Shirt or Tote Bag
Show your support for The HSUS and local animal shelters with an exclusive Shelters Rock t-shirt or tote bag available at all G by GUESS stores, or you can buy the t-shirt online.
2 – Say Thank You
Drop a note of appreciation in the mail or sign our e-card. You can even sign it on Facebook!
3 – Add a Banner to Your Webpage
Post a banner to your MySpace profile, blog, or website to show your appreciation for your local shelter.
4 – Make a Small Donation
Shelters can always use cash, but why not get creative? Donate a year’s subscription to Animal Sheltering Magazine for just $20, or check out your local shelter’s wish list on their website.
5 – Volunteer Your Time
Whether you end up walking pooches or lending your computer skills, shelters can sure use your help! Contact your local shelter to find out how to get involved.
Once you decide what to do, stop by the Humane’s Society site and sign the pledge page letting people know how you’re going to help. Then spread the word to everyone you know.
A difference is made one person at a time. There’s 17 hours left so get those paws moving!
