Looking for ways to make your Valentine's Day a little sweeter? Give some love not only to your special someone, but to a homeless or shelter animal as well! If you're not sure how to get started, we've put together a short list of ways that you can be a sweetheart for animals in your community:
- Support your shelter. Shelters provide a variety of rewarding opportunities to help animals in your community. Share the love by volunteering your time, fostering a sick or newborn animal, making a donation, and more!
- Live Humanely. Show your love for animals by considering their welfare in the every day choices you make.
- Spread the word. Write a letter to the editor of a local paper, share posts from PAWS' blog to encourage others to speak up, or become a fan of PAWS on Facebook and spread the word about important animal issues.
- Spend some quality time. It's the day of love, so shower your pet with some! Take your pup to the dog park and throw around the ball, or curl up with your cat to watch a movie. Spreading the love starts at home!
These are just a few ways to show animals some love this Valentine's Day, but there are many more ways that you can help animals every day. Visit paws.org to find out how!
Thank you for being a champion for animals!
