Guest post: If you love animals, the thought of someone abusing or abandoning their pet might bring tears to your eyes. How could anyone do something like that to an innocent animal? At Emotional Pet Support, we know that pets play an incredibly important role in our health and wellbeing, offering loads of unconditional love and support every day. Thankfully, there are several things you can do to help neglected pets. Check out the resources below to learn more.
Launch Your Own Non-Profit
Non-profit companies can have a huge impact on the lives of pets across the country. Think about starting up one of your own.
- Determine what you want to do, like opening a rescue facility or pet food bank.
- Consider forming an LLC to shield yourself from potential lawsuits against your business.
- If you need funding, try launching a crowdfunding campaign.
- Hire non-profit staff to help you run your new company.
Support Rescue Groups
If you’re looking for ways to offer support for other non-profits, consider donating to a charity or volunteering at a local organization.
- Volunteer at an animal shelter during your spare time.
- Donate old towels, unopened dog food, and cleaning supplies.
- Consider organizing a local fundraiser for a rescue group in your city.
- Donate to animal charities like Best Friends Animal Society.
- Help promote rescue groups on social media.
Adopt a Pet from a Shelter
Adopting a shelter pet is a great way to help an abandoned pet. Just make sure you prepare yourself for this big responsibility.
- Prepare your home before bringing home your new pet.
- If you have pets already, prepare them for a smooth introduction.
- It’s not uncommon for shelter dogs to experience anxiety in a new home, so do what you can to create a calming space for your new pup.
- You can always foster an abandoned pet if you’re not ready to adopt your own animal.
Few things are more rewarding than helping innocent pets that have been hurt or abandoned. If you’re looking for ways to make a difference, consider starting a non-profit charity, supporting your local rescue groups, or adopting a pet yourself.
