Helpful Hints

We can sometimes feel helpless when we pass a stray dog or cat {or other animal} and are unsure as to how to help. Try to keep extra collars, leashes, and perhaps a carrier or two in your vehicle so that you can assist an animal in distress. That is why keeping an emergency kit filled with a few water containers, extra food, blankets, rubber gloves, and towels can assist when transporting an animal in distress. Make sure, as well, that you have a list of phone numbers to local sanctuaries, shelters, and fellow advocates who would be willing to assist.
