Millions of animals enter animal shelters each year. One way to make sure they all have a good life while waiting to be adopted is to hold a supply drive for your local shelter. Local shelters often need supplies, and people of all ages have the ability to hold a drive. Commonly needed items are food (some shelters only accept a certain brand), toys, beds, towels, and office supplies. Here are some tips for planning a successful supply drive:
Coordinating shelter drives will help support your local animal shelters and keep the animals healthy and stimulated. And planning these events is always more fun in a group, so see if you can get some friends together to help you. No matter what or how much you collect, you’ll be making a wonderful contribution to animals in need.
