Last weekend I saw the Show “Save Our Shelter” (sponsored by Dog For Dog) and I wanted to spread the word since they do so much for animals, and help save the shelters across the country that are really struggling. Their team helps the shelter owners by teaching them how to leverage social media for gaining volunteers and donations. The show I watched had Petsmart come to their shelter and groom each and every dog, which helped the dogs themselves have more confidence while receiving a little bit of nurturing. Then they had stocked the shelter completely with food, everyone was in happy tears…as was I.
Petsmart is a huge help because they are constantly helping find homeless pets a forever home. They also carry the DogForDog brand dog food which means that for every bag of this specific food, they will donate a bag of food to animals in need. How friggin cool is that?!

Here is a little more about the company…
NEXT is Bob's shoes:
Skechers plays a huge roll in fundraising for cats and dogs in need as well. They produce a line of shoes called “Bob's” and they help fundraise for all homeless dogs and cats in need.
Personally I have always LOVED Skechers, so this helps me justify all the money I spend with them, lol. I am sure you are wondering if there are any cute ones? And there ARE! Here are some photos of the ones I think are worth every penny:
Pretty dang cute right?! These are great for yourself or gifts, and totally affordable.

The last way that I want to share with you, and is probably the MOST important one, is helping your shelters get noticed by using Social Media.
We all get caught up in our busy lives and so all it usually takes is a photo or two to remind everyone that doing a little extra for innocent animals can do wonders.
All you need to do is look up AT LEAST one of your local shelters and share, like, and repost some of their dog photos or need for volunteers, or spread the news for fundraisers and wish lists. Easy right?!
Wish lists are always on their home website, usually they need a ton of stuff that almost everyone has lying around or you could even buy some of the things from the dollar store…things like old blankets, collars, toys, cleaning supplies, food, etc.
*Way to help #3– Share your local shelter's info and
needs via Social Media. Every bit helps!
Especially in times of crises and natural disasters, animals tend to be put on the sidelines. These guys need love, food, and shelter too. A lot of people lose their pets in these horrific hurricanes, tornadoes, or other natural disasters. Don't forget our four legged friends.
