Saving Animals In February Can Be Done By Everyone

February is spay and neuter month in the United States. Saving animals in February can be done by everyone even if companion animals are not living in the home. Look to see where you lifestyle can save a dog, cat or even several animals.

As a advocate for the voiceless animals, people need to do the humane actions to prevent euthanasia where it should never be considered. In the local shelters, many healthy dogs and cats are killed every year. With the help of rescue organizations the numbers diminished somewhat over the last 10 years. More work is still needed to save more animals from death. Your donation to a local rescue can do just that. Contact the one that you choose and give all the money you can for them to keep saving animals lives.

Other ways saving animals in February can be done by everyone when they visit their local no kill shelter and support their fund raising efforts throughout the year. Many shelters need someone to print off flyers, answer phones and call businesses for donations during these money gathering events.

Anyone who cares about saving animals in February can be done by everyone with some heart. A foster pet care giver is sometimes needed for a mother and puppies until those puppies are old enough to be weaned and ready to have a new forever home with an adoptive person. This kind of a person is needed for a mother cat with her litter of kittens too. Talk to your local shelter soon to inquire about foster care.

If you have any time to volunteer at the shelter, call them and find out where they need you. You could be a dog walker or give some cat some human contact for socialization. When as many people as possible help by saving animals in February more lives will be saved by everyone doing something.Since the animals can't say thank you, I do abundantly wish to congratulate for doing what you can for animals.

I only wish I was able to volunteer! I have no gas money right now so that makes it impossible!

How wonderful that you have a whole month to focus on saving these animals. I'm not sure if we have anything similar here, I think our SPCA organisation may have a fund raising week, but nothing quite like what you've mentioned.

I would love to volunteer at a shelter. We got our old dog from a shelter 12 years ago and am so attached to her. The same shelter that we got her from has a very active spay and neuter clinic. Great to see you here!

Hi! I am glad you found your way over here. I think you will enjoy it. I like that you get a coin for every comment you leave for other people not just what they leave for you! If I can help with anything let me know. Again, welcome..Magnolia

There is something for everyone to do. Did you search the list to see where you can help? If you don't see ANYTHING at all; pray for the animals that others will do the right thing and spay and neuter pets to stop the kiiling.

My dog is a rescue. I was asked to emergency foster whilst they found a forever home and then it ended up being here!

That's such a sweet picture. I hate the idea of euthanizing animals (except in those cases where medicine can't help an animal in suffering); some call it 'mercy killing' when there is nothing merciful about it.

i think so, my heart sighed always when I saw stray cats dead in the road. I hope many people will have a heart for them. I have one at our home plus the others that we fed that comes here everyday, but some wiked people kill them and throw them away. My mom is so angry but she can't do anything about it. last week we saw one of our cat with a slash on the side of her stomach, she was very sick then but I am glad she was all healed.

I think the dozen or so pets I've met in the past few years were all rescues, mostly from city shelters. Spaying and neutering is of prime importance.
