This day was created to encourage pet adoptions and to spread awareness about animal welfare. One simple act of kindness can make a huge difference in a pet’s life. Not only do you have the possibility to change a pet’s life, but your life may be changed as well!
- Adopt a pet or encourage others around you to adopt.
There are millions of animals waiting for a new home right now! Now is the perfect time to express your love for pets and consider adoption. If right now isn’t a good time for you to adopt, tell others about pet adoption. When you adopt one pet, you save a second too – because room is made in a shelter for another pet to be rescued.
- Give your pet a new activity or toy.
Shake things up and change your pet’s life with a new routine or toy for them to play with.
- Give back to your local shelter.
It’s the New Year, and a perfect time to get started on your philanthropy resolutions.
- Consider fostering an animal.
Fostering an animal for a rescue organization makes room in the shelter for another one to be saved! What greater gift is there?
Changing one pet’s life won't change the world, but for that one pet the world will change forever. Now the question is, how will you change a pet’s life?
