Having had such an amazing experience for the past six years, with my first adopted dog Cleo, my gratitude runs deep, as well as my need to give back to the organizations that have helped me along the way. If you have been searching for a way to give fearlessly to animal welfare organizations, tomorrow, November 8th is Volunteer Action Day - the perfect day to start.
On November 8, People Saving Pets introduces Volunteer Action Day, encouraging people from all over the United States to visit their website to learn about and sign up for volunteer opportunities at their local animal welfare organizations.
For example, when I entered my own zip code, I found that members are needed for the American Cancer Society's Bark For Life of San Francisco Planning Committee.
There are many ways to get involved. PetSmart Charities encourages animal-lovers to volunteer, opt to adopt a pet, donate, spay or neuter their pets, or simply spread the word about the People Saving Pets movement.
The Take Action page outlines exactly what you can do to get involved:
Step 1: Visit the People Saving Pets Volunteer Network powered by VolunteerMatch.
Step 2: Enter your ZIP code to find volunteer opportunities near you.
Step 3: Register to sign up for an opportunity.
Step 4: Spread the word! Share the People Saving Pets Volunteer Action Day banner on your Facebook page and invite your friends to join you by telling them to participate in Volunteer Action Day.
