5 Inexpensive Gifts That Make a World of Difference to Animal Shelters

We all love giving gifts to our pets around the holidays, but there are also millions of shelter animals who don’t have an owner to pamper them. This year, why not donate your buddy’s holiday gift to your local animal shelter instead? We’ve compiled a list of supplies that are most needed in shelters across the country. Some items might surprise you!

1. Peanut butter & Cheese Slices

Packaged dog food is all well and good, but most dogs won’t touch their medication unless it’s wrapped up in a piece of cheese or hidden in a mound of peanut butter.

2. Cleaning Supplies

Shelters have hundreds of animals to clean up after. You might be tempted to give something more “fun” but there’s nothing fun about having to worrying about the cost of Lysol.

3. It’s not just about cats and dogs!

People tend to forget that shelters take care of all kinds of animals, not just dogs and cats. Shelters desperately need supplies for rabbits, rodents, birds and reptiles! Who thinks about donating worms or chicken feed? Everybody’s gotta eat.

4. Adopt-a-Cage

You may not have the means or room to adopt another pet, but why not adopt a cage? Kind of like sponsoring a bench in your favorite park, your donation will go toward feeding the animal in your cage for an entire month! http://www.griffinpondanimalshelter.com/donate/adopt-a-cage/

5. Kuranda Bed

Every single shelter is looking for more Kuranda beds this year. They’re comfortable, durable, and easy to clean. Most importantly, they get the animal off of a cold and hard concrete floor.

If you buy a bed directly from the Kuranda website (http://kuranda.com/donate), they’ll give you a donation discount and ship the bed to your shelter of choice.

The holidays are a time to be thankful for what we have, and to help those who have less than we do. These simple gifts go a long way towards making Christmas a bit brighter for animals waiting in shelters for their forever homes.
