*don't forget the employees that work at the shelter - many see things that none of us want to know about - consider taking them flowers or cupcakes just to say "thank you" for all you do for the animals
most have wish lists on their website - some ideas include:
dog leashes, collars, harnesses, toys, dog and puppy shampoo, blankets, food and treats, sweaters (smaller short haired dogs get cold in the AC), "adopt me" vests or leash sleeves, and flea & tick meds
*can't adopt? maybe you and your family could foster a cat or dog till they are ready to go to their fur-ever home
*have photography or Photoshop skills? donate your time to take pictures of shelter/rescue animals - good pictures can make a huge difference in helping animals get adopted
*share adoption profiles on social media - who knows, you just might help an animal find their new home!
and come back on Wednesday for the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly! :)
