ASPCA Top Ways to Help Animals

The ASPCA has put together a super helpful list of Top Ways To Help Animals In Your Community:

  • Learn how to report animal cruelty. One of the best things you can do to help animals in your community is to keep a list of people, including a humane law enforcement officer, a teacher or your veterinarian, who can help you report animal cruelty. Every state is different. In some areas, the police department investigates animal cruelty; in others, that job falls to local animal control or another municipal agency. If you aren’t sure where to report cruelty, visit ASPCA’s Report Animal Cruelty section.
  • Start a neighborhood watch program. Get to know the animals in your neighborhood and invite your friends and neighbors to do the same. Together you can keep an eye out for any suspicious behaviors—abuse and neglect of companion animals, the mistreatment of local wildlife, dogs left in hot cars and other signs of abuse.
  • Volunteer at your local shelter or animal rescue organization. Volunteering at your local shelter is a great way to make a difference in the lives of many animals. From walking dogs and organizing fundraising events to fostering abused or frightened animals, shelters across the country are in desperate need of volunteers. Be sure to visit Ten Ways to Help Your Local Shelter for more suggestions.
  • Become an animal activist. Visit the lobby section at ASPCA to find out everything you can do to raise awareness for animal rights.
  • Read the full list to discover even more ways you can get involved and help!

    Love Love Love all my rescue pets, we currently foster for a local rescue and wish we could save them all!

  2. Big supporter of our local SPCA

  3. Linda Szymoniak says

    I’ve been very involved in animal rescue for a number of years.  I started by crossposting dogs and cats in need of rescue on Facebook.  I have five adopted Treeing Walker Coonhounds of my own – three of who I found thanks to posts on Facebook ( (two came from different kill shelters in NC and one from a kill shelters in SC, and all three would have been killed that day if I hadn’t adopted them).  I also have three cats (two found as strays and one adopted from a rescue).  I am also a volunteer rescue transport driver and have had just about any breed you can think of in my mini-van   I did have my own dog rescue for a couple of years, but had to close for lack of help (especially funds, fosters, and volunteers to help with everything – I just couldn’t do everything on my own, but am hoping to restart it – someday). 

  4. Theresa Spaid says

    I have some things I’ve won that I’m giving to the animal shelter here in town. My kids don’t need all this but the babies at the shelter do.

  5. I volunteered with a local rescue group one day when they were having an adoption event. I haven’t been able to do it since, but I have been donating any leftover food I have 🙂

  6. I walk dogs at the shelter. It let’s us get out and run and feel loved.

  7. Danielle Murgia says

    I donate food to the shelter.  

  8. I have donated food and other wish list items to my local rescue organization. I also spread the word about events for the animal organizations in my area and support their annual dog walk fundraisers.

  9. I very frequently donate to my local shelter, rescue groups, and pet food pantry. In addition to donating most things I win in contests and trying to throw a couple items in my cart for them at the grocery store, I also routinely go through my dogs things and pick out anything they don’t need anymore that can be donated. I volunteer at their events and fundraisers. I like, comment, share, and cross-post on facebook.   I recently got a new puppy, and though I feel a little guilty that he is from a *very* responsible breeder rather than a rescue, I made special donations in his name to my local shelter. (I wanted to rescue, but had very specific things I was looking for in my next dog, and spent over a year scouring petfinder and adopt-a-pet without finding the right match, or getting turned down due to distance/yard requirements. But while I didn’t rescue this time, I still wanted to give back.)

  10. Kelly Ann T. says

    I volunteer with St. Louis Samoyed Rescue. My dog and I also attend fundraising events for other rescues and shelters.

  11. Shelley P says

    I donate food, chews, treats and toys regularly to my local animal shelter. When I go shopping for my furkids and I see a sale I always pick up a few extra things to donate. I also volunteer and foster 🙂

  12. Brutus Duffy says

    I have in my house 8 cats and 3 dogs, all rescues, most who had probelms and were “unadoptable”. One cat is diabetic and has one eye, one has a bad heart and was supposed to have died 10 years ago, one dog had such bad mental issues that it took prozac and a LOT of work to make him a happ boy.
