Ways You Can Support Rescue Dogs During the Holidays

December 6, 2023 | We Care

The holiday season is a time of giving! What better way to spread joy than by supporting rescue organizations that are working to give animals a second chance?

All dog lovers can be passionate advocates for animal welfare and find meaningful ways to make a difference during this time of year.


Monetary Donations

Consider contributing financially to reputable national organizations like the ASPCA, Humane Society, or Best Friends Animal Society. These funds often go directly to animals in need, rehabilitating and rehoming animals that have fallen on hard times.

Virtual Volunteering

You can contribute your social media management, graphic design, or marketing skills to help these organizations reach a broader audience. Look into writing catchy bios for dogs that need homes, or sharing your favorite organization’s posts on your own timeline.

Volunteer at a Nearby Shelter

Your time can make a huge impact! Reach out to your local animal shelter about volunteering. Volunteers often walk dogs, clean cages, or assist with adoption events.

Be A Foster 

Consider becoming a foster parent for a rescue dog. Fostering provides a temporary home for animals awaiting adoption, easing the burden on shelters. Fostering gives dogs a chance to experience a loving environment.

Donate Supplies

Local shelters often have wish lists of items they need. During the holiday season, you can collect and donate essentials like dry dog food, towels or blankets, toys, and grooming supplies.

Collaborate with Local Businesses

Reach out to local businesses to see if they would partner for a good cause. Some businesses will donate a percentage of their sales or host events to support local rescue organizations. You could be the one to spearhead that effort!

By taking action on a national and local level, you can make a meaningful impact on the lives of rescue dogs during the holiday season. Every small effort can add up to create a big difference in the lives of four-legged loved ones who need it most.
