4 Ways to Help Animals this Holiday Season

Whether you’re giving a gift or giving back, here are 4 great ways to help our furry friends this holiday season

Last Updated:


1. Adopt, Don’t Shop
Make adoption your first option this holiday season! Avoid buying anything from pet stores that sell puppies because most of them come from puppy mills. Instead, search for local adoptable animals.

2.  Help Local Shelters
Help your local shelter by volunteering your time, raising awareness, or finding out what supplies they need. You can help raise awareness about the importance of adoption by entering the #HolidaysWithMyPet photo contest from the ASPCA in partnership with Cats Of Instagram and the Cute Pet Club. Find details here.

3. Have a More Humane Holiday Meal
If you eat meat, eggs, or dairy, look for certifications that require better treatment for animals on farms, specifically Certified Humane, Animal Welfare Approved, and GAP (Levels 2 and above). Visit to view a label guide and get useful tips and info on how to have a more humane holiday

4. Host a Holiday Sweet Swap
Consider hosting a holiday bake sale at your office or with friends and family and donate the proceeds to help animals in need. Find out how to start your fundraiser at
