The Humane Society of Ocean City is always appreciative of supplies donated to our organization and it really makes a difference! Here are some of our important "wish list" items and you can download our full "Wish List" below. . If you would like to offer assistance in other ways e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for helping to save a pet in need!
1.) Sponsor an animal residing at the shelter. This will help cover medical costs and supplies while they wait for their new home.
2.) Volunteer at the shelter through "A Day of Caring" and help with projects (ex. painting, gardening) that will benefit the shelter.
3.) Instead of bringing presents for students' birthdays, bring in donations for the shelter.
4.) Sign up for summer education programs. The HSOC has education programs all summer long where children can learn about animal care and get hands-on experience with the animals living at the shelter.
5.) Have your office/class volunteer at special events for the shelter.
6.) Host a donation drive to collect items from the Wish List for the dogs and cats residing at the shelter.
7.) Design posters for the shelter to hang up in your school.
8.) Encourage friends and family to adopt pets from shelters instead of purchasing at pet stores or irresponsible "backyard" breeders.
9.) Organize a trip to a shelter to learn how they work and see what you can do to help.
10.) Most importantly, be a good pet owner! Take your pet for regular veterinary check-ups, play with them, give them attention, and love them!
