Top 3 Reasons to Donate to an Animal Shelter

While U.S. retailers are concerned about the holiday shopping season during the state of our economy, so are animal shelters and rescues. Shelters need donations in order to survive and continue helping pets who for some reason have found themselves homeless.

Although the need is year-round, the holidays invoke a spirit of giving that shelters depend upon. I hope you enjoy the gift of giving. Here are my Top 3 Reasons You Should Consider Donating to an Animal Shelter:

1. Even the smallest of donations can make a difference.
Can you imagine if everyone in your city donated just 1 can/bag of dog or cat food to their local animal shelter! Search online to find food coupons--sometimes you'll even find a company who will mail you a coupon for a free bag of pet food or treats.

2. You will feel good.
Giving is a good thing to do, so naturally you'll feel proud and happy with yourself. This article even offers biological proof why you will feed good after giving: Giving to charity affects the brain, study finds

3. You will have an immediate impact.
Food donations to hungry pets are consumed quickly. Cash donations are put to work quickly. Make a difference...now!
