How to Help

Wondering how you can help? At LEASH we are firm believers that 4 simple words could very well change the world for misplaced and homeless animals.

Those 4 words are:

ADOPT

If you want to help, ADOPT. The best way to help support homeless animals and decrease animal overpopulation is by adopting. Don’t shop around to find yourself a new friend, but explore. Explore local shelters, and rescues.

There are so many unwanted animals out there that you’re bound to find someone that catches your eye. And if you’re really picky, send us an email and we will do our best to assist you in finding your forever furry friend.

FOSTER

If you want to help, FOSTER. Fostering a homeless animal allows that animal a safe, stable place to stay while a forever home is sourced out for them. We have an amazing Foster Care Program and appreciate very much the folks that take part by opening up their hearts and their homes to our animals.

DONATE

If you want to help, DONATE. Donations of any kind are always appreciated and make it possible for us to continue saving lives.

We are always looking for and appreciative of donations of new or used kennels, crates, leashes, collars, bowls, blankets, animal beds, gently used toys and of course monetary donations come in handy too for Veterinary bills, transport costs, and purchasing items we may not have enough of such as those listed above.

EDUCATE

If you want to help, EDUCATE. If your unable to assist with the any of the 3 above, or even if you are: Educate people.

When you hear someone is looking for a new puppy or dog educate them on overpopulation. Let them know that nearly 11 million domesticated animals are being put to sleep annually because there just isn’t enough homes out there.

Let them know that no dog is exempt from being left at a shelter. That there is puppies, pure breeds, mutts, young adults, seniors, and varieties of each. And let them know…

“Shelter dogs aren’t broken, they’ve simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity a shelter dog. Adopt one. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.”

 

Education is the golden key to unlocking the
freedom door for shelter dogs.
