Help Homeless Pets This Holiday Season!
It’s already coming down to the wire for your holiday shopping. Children’s lists have everything on them from toys to electronics to a cute new pet! Make sure that if you are considering granting that child’s Christmas wish that you consider adopting your new family member! There are so many cute puppies, kittens, or already trained adult animals out there in need of a home this Christmas! If you are wondering why you should opt to adopt, please read our 5 Reasons to Rescue!
So if you’re not looking for a new pet anytime soon, there are other ways for you to help homeless pets this holiday season and throughout the year. The many Cincinnati rescue groups are always in need of volunteers and donations and often have events to help them continue in their mission to place homeless pets in loving homes. Here are a few upcoming fundraisers:
- Recycled Doggies is holding pet adoptions and pet pictures with Santa at the Milford Petsmart this Saturday, December 15th, from 11 AM to 4 PM. If you want another way to help out Recycled Doggies, click here to browse and maybe buy something off of their Amazon wish list.
- Best Friends Pet Care (11216 Gideon Ln) is offering pet photos with Santa on Sunday, December 16, from 10 AM to 3 PM. They are asking for a $5 minimum donation that will be given to the Brown County Humane Society and Harlequin Haven Great Dane Rescue. You can also bring any food or supplies that you would like to donate to either of these groups!
- Paws and Claws Animal Rescue will be at Joseph Beth in Crestview on Sunday, December 23, from 5 PM to 9 PM wrapping any purchases you made at Joseph Beth! And don’t forget their Giving Tree to memorialize a beloved pet!
Thank you to the rescue groups mentioned here and to all of the animal rescue organizations for the work they do to save animals and find them loving furever homes!
Feature Rescue: Bess
Bess is an adult terrier mix who was picked up as a stray in rural Kentucky. She is a sweet but timid girl who wants to trust, but she just needs TLC and patience. Bess recently spent a week at Clark Canine Academy learning how to learn! She did very well and even learned some things that most dogs don’t tackle until their second week of training. She is super smart and just needed help channeling her energy. If you want to read more about Bess or see other available Recycled Doggies, click here. Let’s help find Bess a caring and patient family for the holidays!
