Our family has been fostering dogs for the past couple of months. As scary as a jump that was, it has been a fun experience for me as well as my husband and kids.
I understand not everyone can take animals into their home, however, there are a few things YOU can do to help local Baton Rouge animals.
Donate used towels.
Animals are sometimes gross… we go through SO MANY towels cleaning up messes when we are fostering. Save your towels when you get new ones & pass on your used towels for messes and clean up.
These can be your old blankets when you are cleaning out your closets OR Walmart usually puts their fleece blankets on sale for $2-$3 at the end of the season. This is the PERFECT puppy blanket that allows our pups to feel warm and loved.
Purchase Items off of an Amazon Wish List.
Most local rescues will provide an amazon wish list. This list will include items such as treats, dewormers, puppy pads, flea treatments, and dog food. You can add a $10 purchase to your cart, and ship it DIRECTLY to the non-profit organization & you just HELPED A PUPPY! Yippee! Amazon Wish List – K9 Rouge Rescue
Share Social Media Posts of Dogs needing homes.
We all know the power of social media – this is no different. If you see a friend of yours fostering some pups, share the love. You never know when someone on your friend list is looking for a new family member.
A local rescue’s mission statement, K9 Rouge says “Cultivating a compassionate and knowledgeable community of canine care and safety while securing at-risk canines temporarily for the purpose of successfully pairing them with loving families.”
