5 Ways to Help for Foster a Pet Month

The month of June is celebrated as Foster a Pet Month. Here are 5 ways to help.

Fostering animals is all about saving lives.

The foster parents voluntarily bring a pet at their home temporarily until they get a new home and that’s such a noble deed because they give a better life to an animal as compared to the shelter homes.

Therefore, to create awareness and encourage more people to foster pets, June is celebrated as Foster a Pet Month. Fostering a pet is not as difficult as most people think, besides there are other important things that you can do to spread awareness and contribute to the National Foster a Pet Month.

Follow these 5 easy tips for how you can help:

  1. Foster a Pet
  2. Volunteer
  3. Social Media Shoutout
  4. Reach Out to Local Shelter
  5. Spread Awareness

1. Foster a Pet

All you need to do is visit a shelter home or rescue group and foster a pet. This is how you can directly contribute in Foster a Pet Month. You can be the first one to teach your pet some basic house manners so that it can be easy for a pet to get adopted. Besides, fostering is temporary so it will not take much of your time (expenses are paid for by GHHS) and if you already have a pet and when they come in contact with another animal, they may learn to have a partner and share stuff and have a playmate. And, fostering a pet makes you feel good as you’re saving a life. GHHS is in need of medical, pregnant, bottle feeding fosters.

2. Volunteer

Foster a pet month comes with many events so to help GHHS get some ease you can volunteer your services. Just call us and ask us what we need and how you can help. It could be anything that includes managing the public at the event, helping socializing the cats or help cleaning to ensure animals have the safest and cleanest space. If you run out of time to volunteer then you can also provide pet care supplies that an organization needs.

3. Social Media Shoutout

Well, fostering a pet or volunteering at shelter homes or rescue groups are not the only ways. You can have another easier option to contribute in Foster a Pet Month by posting about your pet that has changed your life. You can also share things from GHHS including foster requests and adoptable animals. You can also raise awareness about homeless animals that are just waiting to be adopted.

This is the best way to contribute in Foster a Pet Month. You can spread awareness by sharing information about animal issues.

Moreover, you can even host Q&A hour at GHHS or the library regarding fostering a pet.

Fostering a pet is more than just having a pet temporarily at your home; you end up giving permanent happiness to the pet when he is adopted. So, make sure to encourage everyone to save the life of animals by fostering, adopting and volunteering in this Foster a Pet Month.
