Maleah Stringer: Long distance volunteers matter at shelter

(Continued)

If Emma can make such a difference from Alaska, what can you do with your particular talents to make a difference in our community? Non-profits always need money. Come up with ideas for fundraisers and implement them. Find out what your shelter needs and come up with creative ways to make those things appear. You will make such a difference for the animals and feel a sense of accomplishment. You do not have to come to the shelter in order to make a vital contribution.

We have so many wonderful animals right now; many who have been surrendered to us by their owners for one reason or another. They are waiting for someone to see something special in them, to feel that special bond and to save them from a life in the shelter. You can make a difference; you just have to decide to do it. This is true regardless of your cause. Take action and make a difference.
