Are you wondering how you can help make a difference in the lives of cats needing forever homes? Perhaps you’ve already maxed out the number of pets for your household, but still want to do something to help?
Sponsor a cat. Or sometimes this is called virtually adopting a cat.
Contact your local pet shelter or humane society and ask if there is one cat you could “virtually adopt” or sponsor. Tell them you would send either cash donations and/or donate items the cat can use. If they agree, dash over to the shelter/humane society and choose a cat. Have them tag the cage with information that you are a sponsor for that cat so the workers there are aware of the setup.
Take photos of the cat and spread the news that the cat is needing a home.
Ask for updates from the shelter if you are unable to stop by frequently. Be sure to honor your pledge to donate cash and/or items for this particular cat. Hoping this baby gets adopted in a timely manner, then choose another cat to sponsor!
Many cat lovers want to help and make a difference but don’t know what to do and feel helpless. Either they have no more room in their home for additional pets or they don’t have time to volunteer or don’t have enough money to completely care for another pet of their own. Becoming a sponsor for a cat benefits everyone involved. What you’re donating for that cat is just that much LESS money the shelter has to put towards that cat’s care. AND if you help to actively promote the cat’s adoption needs and someone chooses to adopt this cat, YIPPEE! That is the perfect ending!
The joy you’ll experience being a part of this process is priceless. Now go call your local shelter or humane society and ask if they allow people to sponsor a cat… and if they haven’t done such a thing, please encourage them to do so, as they will benefit from your help.
