It’s the Season of Giving

The holidays will be here before we know it. This is the time of year when everyone thinks about what they’re gonna give to their family and furriends. I’m gonna ask you to think about giving to those who don’t have family and furriends to give them anything.

We anipals that have furever homes are furry lucky. There’s a lot of anipals in shelters who need a little luck, too. There’s a lot we can do to help them. Here’s just a few.

Get involved in Iams Home for the Holidays. There’s lots of ways to help. Head over to the Iams Home for the Holidays website to see how you can help.

Donate to the The Santa Paws Drive, the Ferret Giving Tree, or other drives that are collecting money for toys, food, and medical care for shelter pets.

Donate either time or money to your local shelter. I know lots of you do this year round, but many of us just can’t afford to do that. If you can’t afford to donate at any other time of year, please try to find a few pennies out of your holiday budget to help out at this time of year. If you can’t donate money, try to see what else you can do to help out. Shelters always need more hands than they can afford salaries for. Donate your time instead of your dollars.

Another way you can help is to Shop Anipals! Lots of the anipals donate portions of their sales to anipal causes. You can get great stuff to give for presents and help anipals at the same time.

It’s not just anipals that need extra help this time of year. We all know lots of people that are having a hard time in this crappy economy we live in. People have a lot harder time accepting help than animals do. So think of ways to help that won’t embarrass them. Maybe a gift card tucked in a holiday card. Send stuff you know they need anonymously to their house if you know their address.

Monday morning edit: Just talked to my furriend @OllyTed over in the UK. His particular human goes around to elderly neighbors this time of year to make sure their heating is on and that they’re ok. He leaves his number in case they need anything through the cold months. How’s that for a spectacular idea!

That’s it for today my furriends. Have a great week everyone!
