WANT TO HELP THE ANIMALS BUT NOT QUITE OLD ENOUGH TO VOLUNTEER IN PERSON?
THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF WAYS YOU CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
OUTSIDE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Wish List Donation Drive
Take a look at our Wish List. Many items are things that people have around their house already, such as old linens. You can help us by having a wish list drive and printing out our WishList and hanging it at schools, parent’s jobs, congregations such as church or temple and sharing with friends, family and neighbors. You may also consider partnering with a food or pet store, setting up a table outside for a day, handing out the Wishlist as people walk in and collecting donations as they come out. It is up to you how big you make your donation drive!
Bake Sale/Lemonade Stand/Car Wash
Raising money for the animals is a huge help! Be creative!
These ideas can be used for individual volunteers or groups.
You can do this right in your own yard, or consider doing it at a sports event, school, or any other community area. Just make sure you get permission!
Become A Foster Home - (contact Fostering@GardenStateARC.org)
Fostering a shelter pet is very important to the success of an animal welfare organization because we get to see their regular behavior inside a home and it gets them out of the shelter environment. We are currently in need of fosters for all types of animals in our care. We provide the supplies and veterinary care during their time with you in foster.
Promote Our Pets
We need you to educate your friends and family to always ‘Adopt, Don't Shop’. You will find photos and bios of some adoptable dogs and cats on our website. Printing fliers, making posters, sharing on social media and at school. These are all great ways to help and share some of our furry friends.
