5. Help the Special Pals Shelter expand

Special Pals shelter in Houston, TX, takes in hundreds of dogs and cats in need every year, rehabilitates them, and rehomes them. They also offer low cost or free services for community members, and provide free education for new adopters. These important services are critical to a healthy animal rescue environment in the greater Houston area, and Special Pals is widely recognized as one of the most important groups in their community, leading in adoptions and growing each year.

Unfortunately, Special Pals has serious obstacles in their way as they try to scale up their operations and rescue and rehome more cats and dogs. The current facilities do not allow them to meet their new adoption goals, and they need to be improved for the increased mental health of the animals in their care.

Given that adoption rates spike by as much as 25 percent when animals have a dedicated outside area, a generous anonymous donor in the Houston area has agreed to match all funds dollar for dollar up to $40,000 to make this project a reality by January 2017.

Make a donation in your own or a loved one’s name and you’ll not only help provide the shelter and its residents with some much-needed resources, you’ll also receive a certificate suitable for framing.

3. Save the Shelter Cats

A gift as modest as $10 can go a long way to help shelter cats. GreaterGood is well aware of this, and has a new way to help cats in shelters across the US: care packages!

Providing food, vaccinations, bedding, and enrichment needs for cats is a costly endeavor for animal shelters across the country. Due to the high cost of these basic necessities, shelters often have to limit the number of cats that they can save and provide homes for. A soft bed and a full belly can go a long way for the well-being of shelter cats and kittens. Through proper vaccination, animals’ risk of disease is cut down or eliminated, leaving shelter volunteers more time to find good homes for these cats. Animals that are healthy, happy, and well-fed stand a much better chance of being adopted.

Your assistance couldn’t come at a better time, and a certificate memorializing your donation, in whomever’s name you choose, makes a great gift.
