Volunteer to Transport | February 20, 2008

Many people may feel like they don’t have the time to commit to volunteering at shelters, or have the extra cash to donate.  For these folks, and interesting idea may be volunteering to transport a rescued dog or cat to their new location.  Typically, animals are moved from kill-shelters (ones that euthanize) to no-kill shelters when a spot opens up.  But some folks volunteer to drive animals between shelters and foster homes or their new adoptive homes.  

If the drive is short, you can taxi Fido the whole way there.  If the trip is too long for you to make on your own, other volunteers can meet you to split up the journey.  The next time you get the urge to take a leisurely drive, a road trip with your friends, or spend some time on the road with your family, consider chauffeuring a shelter animal to a new home. 

For more info, check with your local shelters or take a look at the Yahoo! Groups  page for animal transport.  For an interesting article on animal transports, click here

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
