6. Play With The Cats

Volunteers always walk the shelter dogs, but the cats need socialization, exercise, and love too! Take a shelter kitty for a few hours!

7. Take Higher Quality Pictures

With online adoption sites being the first line of communication for potential owners, high-quality images of the animals are a must.  

8. Post Adoptable Animals On Social Media

The power of posting animals on Facebook is incredible.  You can reach thousands of people in a short period of time.  You can use this power to help get an animal a loving forever home.  

9. Scour The Internet

Try searching through Craigslist, eBay, and Freecycle to find  anything super cheap or free for the shelter. Look for things like filing cabinets, printers, or furniture. Try calling around to see if stores are willing to donate anything like ink or paper for printers.

10. Transport Animals

You could volunteer to drive animals in rural shelters to rescue organizations where there are more people looking to adopt.  You would be helping to save many precious lives. Get in touch with the rescue organizations in your area.
