It takes a lot of perseverance and a strong conviction to support a cause you’re passionate about. When it comes to supporting causes that involve abandoned and unwanted animals, there are people and organizations that are prepared to go above and beyond to accommodate destitute animals that have nowhere else to go.
Here’s how you can too, presented below by Lifefie.
Advocate for animals that aren’t able to
There needs to be a voice for those that are unable to speak up for themselves so that action can take place. Advocating is an effective way to achieve this.
- Become an animal rights activist by joining an animal rights organization such as The Animal Liberation Front.
- Other ways you can stand up for the protection of animals against abuse include not supporting companies that use animals for product testing, as well as writing letters to your legislators to enact better laws to protect animals.
- You could even become an animal rights lawyer if you are considering a career that involves the welfare of animals. Be sure to do your research so you know what to expect upfront.
Create a non-profit
Creating a non-profit is another way to impact animal society in a big way.
- You will have to choose a company structure, first and foremost, that is going to support your philanthropic efforts.
- A nonprofit corporation is usually the first option you should explore.
- There are various advantages to choosing a non-profit corporation versus other nonprofit business structures, such as tax benefits and limited liability.
- Lastly, use online tools to create business cards for your nonprofit (click here for an example). This way, people can easily get in contact with you in an emergency.
Donations are always welcome
Whether you choose to donate your time, money, or other resources, there are many things you can do to contribute to uplifting the lives of needy animals.
- Think of fundraising ideas that could generate some excitement amongst the public, such as hosting a dog wash day, a fun run with your pet, donating a pet photo shoot, etc.
- Think of practical items that you could ask for. Read up on the best recommendations from respected professionals so that you choose wisely.
- Volunteering at a shelter is another way to show your love for animals practically. The SPCA is always grateful for those who want to give their time to help sick and abandoned animals.
Showing one’s love for animals in their time of need is one of the noblest deeds anyone can do, especially since these are innocent beings that don’t deserve ill-treatment. Thankfully, many people are choosing to step up and do what is required to help reduce the influx of abandoned pets to organizations that are full to capacity.
