It’s December, which means the holidays are upon us. Everywhere you turn, there are advertisements for the latest gadgets, newest vehicles and popular clothing brands. While these things are all very nice, in the end they’re just that: things.
What if you could give a more meaningful gift this season? How about a gift that truly keeps on giving every day of the year?
Here at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, you can give the gift of saving a life this holiday season and honestly, what could be better than that? By giving a loved one a membership to LTBHS (or renewing your own!), you’re giving them a gift that lasts throughout the whole year. We rely on our members to help us provide warm shelter, veterinary services and personal attention to all the animals in our care, in addition to offering proactive programs to the community that helps control the pet population.
Each week, we go through approximately 75 cans of kitten food alone. Another way to help homeless animals this season is by donating specific items that we use every day such as bleach, canned dog and cat food, toys or soft beds. Gift cards are much appreciated, as well, as we can use them throughout the year on the items we need most.
What about giving the gift of a forever home to a shelter animal? We never cease to be amazed by the wonderful animals who come through our doors every day. They all deserve loving families of their own and our goal is to help them find forever homes in time for the holidays. This Saturday, December 6, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., we’re hoping to do just that. We’ll be hosting a Holiday Open House with incredible adoption specials that encourage families to adopt one of the amazing animals here at the shelter.
So as you dive into this busy holiday season, please remember the animals who are waiting to find loving homes of their own. Whether it’s giving the gift of membership, donating supplies or opening your heart and home to a homeless animal, please consider giving some hope for the holidays to an animal in need this season.
