Every day dozens of neglected and mistreated animals are
rescued by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The SPCA is a non-profit organization with a foundation of donors and volunteers and more help is always welcome.
Why should you help?
When you help, you too can feel responsible for the safety and care of their animals. From rescuing dogs from puppy mills to saving wild animals from illegal zoos the SPCA is always making a difference. If you volunteer or contribute donations you are making the work of the SPCA possible.
Ways to donate:
Any monetary donation will go a long way but money isn’t the only way you can make a difference. You can donate your old pet toys or gear. These items are invaluable to the SPCA. If you don’t own a pet you can still help out by donating your used blankets, towels and sheets. This is because often when a pet gets adopted the SPCA cannot reuse the bedding.
All volunteer opportunities are limited to people 16 or older so if you fall into that age group volunteering at the SPCA can be a great experience. This will also help you get volunteer hours so that you can meet the standard you need to graduate. If you’re not old enough you and your family could also consider fostering an animal to give it a temporary safe home.
