Kids Can Volunteer & Contribute to Helping Animals

Posted on: September 11th, 2012 by Barbara Denzer 1 Comment

Americans are the most generous people in the world when it comes to contributing money and supplies or volunteering to help people that have lost their homes or endured hardships due to natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods or tsunamis. Kids see and hear about this every time there’s a disaster. They want to help too.  It’s difficult for them to understand how they can help people far from where they live but we can teach our children how to contribute and volunteer to help animals, we don’t have to wait for a disaster.

There are lots of things kids can do to help pet organizations in their own neighborhood or school district. Pet shelters always need help! They need supplies like food, towels, beds, blankets, toys, laundry detergent. Kids can volunteer to collect things from friends, neighbors, relatives or local businesses. You can be their “partner” by supervising, helping them plan, supplying a place for them to store the things they collect and providing transportation to the shelter.

Kids can also form clubs or groups of pet lover friends from school or the neighborhood and can create a neighborhood “watch” for lost or stay pets. They can participate with pet organizations that have “Walks” to raise money by getting sponsors to donate money for each mile they walk their dogs. They can volunteer to help take care of neighbor’s pets. There are lots of ways we can show kids how to love pets by helping them volunteer to help animals.
