Here at Pilots To The Rescue, we’re dedicated to helping the huge amounts of abandoned or unwanted pets living in shelters or roaming the streets nationwide. If you want to get involved and do your part for animals in the local area, there are a few key points to bear in mind – here are some for your attention.
Before you get stuck in with local charities or your own personal projects, it’s important to carry out some prior research – this will help you better understand the responsibilities you’d be taking on and the nature of animal welfare.
- Read about the statistics and responsive organizations in your area
- Learn about what volunteering in an animal shelter entails with first-hand accounts or social media posts
- Check to see what the training and certification requirements are for your local charity
If you’ve made up your mind to get involved and volunteer, there are a few key steps to ensure that you go through this process the right way.
- Be certain that your local charities are properly accredited by carrying out a prior background check
- If your local charities aren’t to your liking, you could instead reach out to nationwide/worldwide charities and see if you can volunteer as a local ambassador
- If you’re keen to get involved with your local charity, a visit is a great way to show your enthusiasm
Additional Ways To Help
Beyond volunteering, there are plenty of additional ways to advocate for or directly help our nation’s unwanted pets.
- Helping out can also mean donating clothes, blankets, or money
- Get the word out on social media by sharing posts, engaging in discussion, and writing statuses
- Alternatively, you could think about starting an organization of your own. Just be certain to look into the administrative requirements beforehand
When it comes to abandoned or neglected pets, we need all the help we can get. If you can dedicate your time, you can make a profound difference in your community.
