Help Animal Shelters this Christmas

id-10091648Is there a rescue shelter for animals somewhere near where you live? There are very well-known shelters in some cities, but there are thousands of others that you may never have heard of. Where there are animals that have been abandoned or neglected, or need re-homing for some other reason, there will be shelter nearby that will try its best to care for those animals.

But the rising cost of veterinary bills and the increase in the number of animals being abandoned as people struggle to afford them mean that shelters are struggling to cope. Animal charities such as the RSPCA rely on public donations and volunteers to care for the animals in their shelters, some of whom need a lot of care and veterinary treatment to get them to the point where they can be successfully re-homed.

There are some ways in which you can help your local shelter. You could make a donation of money or food, bedding, blankets or collars. You could volunteer to work with the animals or in some other way to support the shelter or charity. Or you could become a fundraiser and organize an event in your local community to raise money and awareness of the sort of help that other people could give to the shelter.

At this time of year, people do respond well to pleas for help from those who need it in the cold months. It’s an expensive time of year, but you may find that people feel more sentimental and thankful for all that they have – and be more willing to give something to those in need. Organize a Christmas fair at your local village hall or community center with fun games for all the family. Either sell tickets for entry to the hall, or charge a small amount per game (e.g. tombola; bottle hoopla; pin the tail on the reindeer etc.) and make it clear how much will be given to the shelter you want to support. If you have costs to meet, such as the cost of hiring the hall, then those will need to be paid out of the proceeds of your fair before giving any ‘profit’ to the shelter.

If you’re not sure about arranging a fundraiser, you could always consider sponsoring an animal, or contact your local shelter to ask how else you might be able to help. At this time of year, any help will be very much needed and very much appreciated by all.

Vet-Co helps by working with various animal rescue groups, like Best Friends Animal Society, to improve the health of rescue animals. We also have events, like our Pets Photos with Santa, to get donations for people and pets in need.

Santa is coming to Vet-Co!

Vet-Co's letter to Santa

We love this time of year.  All the decorations, the gifts, the luminarias and of course the little dogs dressed as reindeer.  In celebration of the season we decided to ask Santa if he would come and visit all the great little dogs and cats at the vet clinic.  To our excitement, he said he would!

So now you can bring your good little cat or dog or person down to the Albuquerque Vet-Co vet clinic on December 8th to get a picture with Santa!

He will be hanging out with us all day, along with some other great folks like 100.3 The Peak radio station!

So come down on Saturday December 8th. Get your picture taken with Santa for free! While you are here get some toys for your pet and don’t forget to get your shots! We will be running some great deals all day long.
