Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Use your car to help out

Jenny volunteers some of her time at a cat shelter named Ollie’s Place.  I would love to regularly volunteer, but my schedule keeps me from doing so (until the summer, at least).  Though I can’t be physically present, I can still help out in other ways. 

Two people had contacted Ollie’s about donating large collapsible crates but they had no way to deliver them.  So we hopped in the car and headed from Brooklyn to Manhattan to pick up the crates.  It took a little while, and driving in the city is always stressful, but now there is room for a few more animals. 

If you don’t have time to volunteer regularly, offer to lend a hand (or your driving skills) when you can, picking up supplies or transporting animals.  It feels great to help, even if it’s on an irregular basis.          


Help Out Ollie’s Place

Ollie’s Place, the shelter where Jenny volunteers, is trying to improve their fundraising tactics.  Are there any readers out there who can suggest tactics or events that have been successful for your favorite shelters?  If you have ideas, please leave us a comment.  If you would like to help out a FANTASTIC organization that helps stray cats find a new home in NYC, head on over to their homepage and donate a few bucks via paypal (the link is on the left hand side).  Thanks for reading and GO HELP OUT OLLIES PLACE!!   


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).
