People Saving Pets empowered by PetSmart Charities

Volunteer Action Day

November 8 is Volunteer Action Day!

People Saving Pets™ is a social movement empowered by PetSmart Charities® that is dedicated to saving the lives of adoptable pets and solving the homeless pet problem by uniting pet lovers and inspiring local action.On Tuesday, November 8, in conjunction with National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week (Nov 6-12),  People Saving Pets is introducing Volunteer Action Day to bring awareness of how much animal welfare organizations need volunteers and to encourage animal loving people to help pets by volunteering in their communities.

What is terrific about Volunteer Action Day is that you can take action from the comfort of your home, right from your own computer.  All you need to do is take that first step in learning about opportunities in your area and if you are already volunteering, share your story on the People Saving Pets Facebook page.

Here are the simple steps to get you started as a Volunteer in your area.

Did you know that 97% of animal welfare organizations need volunteers?  People volunteering helps keep down administrative costs, allowing the organization to use  funds toward the care of pets in need of adoption including spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, food  to name just a few things.
