With busy schedules, personal struggles, and a never ending to-do list, it can be easy to forget about the things that matter. We underestimate how important little acts of kindness are. Today is Do Something Nice Day - a day that challenges people to stop for a moment and do something nice, whether it’s buying lunch for a hungry person or giving a hug to somebody who needs it.
We encourage you to celebrate this holiday in any way you feel inclined, but for those of you dog-lovers, we wanted to share a few acts of kindness that we always appreciate at Wags and Walks - today and every day!
At Wags and Walks, we can always use an extra pair of hands! If you’re interested in spending time with some of our adorable and adoptable dogs, our Adoption Center provides a temporary home for some of our dogs while they are waiting for their forever family. Since these dogs are not in foster care, we rely on our amazing volunteers to walk, feed, love and care for them. Learn more about volunteer opportunities here!
Do you have old dog products that you don’t need anymore? Not only will it help clean out your home, but our pups will appreciate it immensely! We constantly have dogs at our Adoption Center and living with fosters, and as you know, they require lots of things to keep them happy and healthy! We will gladly accept leashes/harnesses, crates, blankets/pillows, dog beds, dog food, toys - and anything else! Feel free to pop by our Adoption Center and drop off any goodies. You may even get a “thank you” lick from one of our resident pups!
In this fast paced world, we understand that not everybody has time to spare. If you support our mission and are interested in helping the cause but can’t volunteer due to the time commitment, please consider helping us raise money. Every dollar helps! All donations will go directly to help remove at-risk dogs from shelters and provide them with medical care, food, and boarding. If you’re interested in becoming a monthly sponsor, you can join our Wags & Wags Pup Club and receive benefits like a monthly newsletter, invitations to exclusive events and stories of dogs you have helped save.
If you’ve been thinking about adding a furry member to your family, what better time to do it than now? Not only is today Do Something Nice Day (and what is nicer than rescuing a pup?), but the entire month of October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Check out our list of available dogs to find your forever companion!
