9 great ways to start your year!

It's the New Year. Everyone is making resolutions and thinking of ways to make themselves even better than they were before.  

Here are some great ideas on how to become involved in your community and make a difference in the lives of homeless animals in our city!  

1. Share our link



She our link of adoptable dogs on your Facebook or Twitter page. Strayrescue.org/adopt

Not only will your friends get to see our wonderful dogs & cats, but maybe, just maybe, they’ll see one they like! Be sure to mention Tito's Handmade Vodka is sponsoring all adoption fees for dogs 6 months or older in January! #rightplacerighttime



2. The "Dime Challenge"

Challenge your workplace to the “Dime Challenge.”  Get an empty 2-liter bottle and place in the lobby/common area.  Throughout the year, put any dimes in it you may have in your pocket.  Once it’s full, it will hold nearly $500!  Get your co-workers together and come deliver it.  We’ll take a photo, post it on Facebook & tag your business, and you can meet some of the furry dogs or cats you helped by raising the money!

3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Quit throwing away recyclable materials. If you don’t have access to a recycle bin, we will take your:
a. Plastic bags (we use them for poo bags!)
b. Empty toilet paper or paper towel rolls (gives the puppies something to play with)
c. Soda cans – we use the money raised for DNA tests on unique looking dogs to help them get adopted quicker! Ex: Sharpie mix!
d. Prescription pill bottles – we will reuse them in our vet clinic!
e. Although not recyclable, we will even take your old towels and blankets

4. Become a foster home!

Not ready to adopt a [another] dog or cat?  What about becoming a foster home? Foster families agree to take a dog to their loving home while the dog awaits a forever home. They are so much more happy and relaxed in a home environment than at the shelter. This makes them more adoptable! Fill out an application here. 

5. Volunteer! 

Are you looking to fill some free time with volunteer work this year?  We’d love to have you!  Our volunteers do many things such as (but not limited to) walking dogs, taking them to adoption events, helping set up for our fundraising events and more!  Fill out an application and join our army to make our community a better place!

6. Give your dog a belly rub. 

It sounds simple and maybe even silly to include in our list, but a happy life begins with a happy home. Just by taking a few minutes out of your day to relax with them will make your day so much better! This small act of kindness can make a huge difference in your outlook & attitude.  

7. Get your company involved!

Is your company interested in saving a dog or cat?  Sign up to pay the medical bills of our next rescue, and we will name him/her after your company! You can be a part of the animal’s journey and even their adoption. We’ll even tag your company on social media every time we post updates. We can do it together! Email our marketing manager to sign up or ask questions!

8. You guessed it – ADOPT this year! 

By choosing adoption you are choosing your city. Help us in our mission to make sure no dog gets left behind! If you follow Stray Rescue, you know there are dogs going hungry on every corner of the city. Together we can save them, one by one, and change their world. They will love you with all their heart.

9. Make a donation

Your donation is your vote to help the animals from the city streets.  Most of all of our funding comes from donations from individuals just like you. Help us continue our mission to save as many dogs and cats as possible!
