From PAWS Atlanta (Decatur, Georgia 30035)

If you are interested in helping us promote responsible pet care, prevent pet overpopulation and enhance the pet-human bond, financial contributions can be made in a variety of ways, such, as:

Planned Giving: You can help PAWS Atlanta fulfill its mission now and long into the future with a planned gift.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts: Family and friends can make a lasting impact through a memorial donation for a person or pet to PAWS Atlanta. For that hard-to-shop-for-someone, a tribute donation is a perfect way to honor your family or friend and help homeless animals at the same time.

Pet Pal: Create a unique bond by sponsoring that special dog or cat whose story touched your life by becoming a Pet Pal.

Workplace Giving: With just a few dollars per paycheck, you can make a significant contribution to our programs and services that will assist our homeless animals throughout the year.

Wish List: Help PAWS Atlanta animals by donating items from our wish list. Items ordered from our Amazon Wish List will ship directly to us.

Youth Supporters: You are never too young to help animals in need. There are many fun ways to get your neighborhood group, scouting troop or a class involved.

From the Nevada Humane Society (Reno, Nevada 89502)

Although we do our very best to promote all of the wonderful animals we have for adoption, we can help them even more by photographing them in their best light. Photos are initially taken while the animal is being processed and really don’t capture their true beauty and personality. Great photos dramatically increase their chance of adoption.

Magic (Pet ID #153623)

We already have a few volunteers that do a great job of this, but with our volume of animals, we need more photographers to ensure every animal gets the best chance for adoption.

If you have a knack for photography and a few hours to come to the shelter and photograph adoptable pets, it could make a world of difference in finding them homes.

For more information on how photos can help, please follow this link to watch a story on the CBS Sunday Morning show. Contact Nikole Nichols at 775-856-2000 ext. 321 or by email to help with this project.

Happy Trails (Ravenna, Ohio 44266) is working in cooperation with Leslie Ashworth, formerly with SAFE (Safety For Animals And Families In Emergencies) and currently with Veterinary Care Foundation and Ohio Domestic Violence Network, to create safe emergency homes for horses and other farm animals who need to be removed in an emergency when a woman flees her home due to domestic violence. Often animals and pets left behind also become victims of an abusive boyfriend or husband, and are beaten or killed as a means of control and revenge. Happy Trails is helping organize a program for temporary housing for horses and other farm animals when they need to be removed from an explosive situation. If you are interested in becoming a foster home or would like more information, call Happy Trails at 330-296-5914.

Unusual Volunteer Opportunities

Not everyone has to shovel poo to volunteer at Happy Trails. They welcome senior citizens to help meet and greet visitors and to run errands; tech-savvy volunteers to monitor and be responsible for the rescue’s on-line logo apparel; and adoption counselors for sheep and goats.


There’s an entire list of interesting volunteer opportunities linked to the sanctuary. For more information, call Happy Trails Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Weber, at 330-968-8477.

From HALO Animal Rescue (Phoenix, Arizona 85017)

The problem:  Pet Overpopulation.
Almost 50,000 dogs and cats were euthanized last year in Phoenix shelters.

How you can help solve it:

your pets from shelters (rather than pet stores, craigslist, or backyard breeders)

your time at your local shelter

to help cover the cost of spay/neuter, vaccinations, medical care, adoptions services for homeless animals

Spay or Neuter
all the dogs and cats in your household, even if they’re indoor-only.  Have feet, will travel!  Low-cost options are always available for those who are afraid they cannot afford it.

to your pets for their whole lives. They’re joining your family! You wouldn’t disown a family member just because you moved to a new apartment.

for the animals who have no one else. Inform your friends and family about the pet overpopulation problem, particularly the importance of spay/neuter and adopting from shelters.

From Tree House Humane Society (Chicago, Illinois 60640)

We’ve had a great response to this so far but we still need a few more people to help in order to cover two shifts each day of the week. We would be grateful to anyone interested in helping with the care of cats being boarded before and after their spay/neuter surgeries at the Tree House BDVM Mac Lean Spay/Neuter Clinic. Help is needed every day, but our busiest times are Monday evenings, and Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings and evenings.

Most of the work will be with feral cats. Some experience with TNR or feral cats preferred, but we are willing to train anyone who is interested and can commit to at least one, 2 hour shift/week. If you are interested in helping with this very important task, please contact Olga.
