‘Tis the Season of Giving. And one group of furry individuals needs it more than ever this holiday season.
Huntsville and Madison’s animal shelters work tirelessly year round to help dogs, cats, and other furry/scaly/feathery creatures find homes.
But they can’t do it alone.
Every one of these groups needs kind-hearted individuals to lend a helping hand.
Whether you decide to cuddle with some kittens, donate toys or food, or just purchase some swag in their online stores, every little bit helps our four (or two!) legged friends live a better life.
Here are some local shelters that could use a dose of the Holiday Spirit:
- Give a monetary donation.
- Volunteer to cuddle foster animals on a temporary basis with Hold Me program.
- Get involved with donating food items, crochet blankets for foster pets, transport animals, and more.
- Foster an animal.
- Volunteer to donate, shop, or work at the Market Place.
- Volunteer to take care of animals or clean at The Lodge.
