For Students Who Love Animals
As you all know, I love animals and am always trying to volunteer at our local Animal Shelter, to give love to all those dogs that need homes.
Most animal shelters and rescues need blankets, toys and other supplies to care for all the animals they look after. One way that kids can help is to organize a drive to provide these supplies to a local shelter.
Here are a few other ideas to help if you are interested in making a difference.
- Host a Party with a Purpose – through Party Animals online tools.
- Read to Cats and Dogs – some shelters have reading programs where the animals get affection and attention and students get to practice reading out loud.
- Organize a Walk–a-thon with your friends to raise money.
- Holiday Gift Drive – organize a gift drive by asking friends to donate a pet toy. This can also be a school wide program.
- Donate to Pet Food Bank – instead of a canned food drive for a food bank, why not try a Pet Food drive with bags of dry food or cans of wet food. Have a goal of how many cans or bags of food you want to donate.
Good Luck with whatever project you choose to help!
