If you love animals, show it if you know it. Many people express their love for animals in special ways. If you want to show the world you have a place in your heart for these lovable creatures, find out how to do it by reading this article.
One way you can show your love for the animals is to donate money to an animal rights organization. PETA investigates cases of animal abuse, rescues animals, and more. The ASPCA also rescues animals and works to end animal abuse, so you may want to support their efforts. If you’d rather donate a vehicle or a boat to the ASPCA instead of donating money, you can do that. Other organizations you can donate to include The Humane Society of the United States, Best Friends, and Hope for Paws.
Wear Animal T-Shirts
A fun and fashionable way to show your love for animals is to wear a T-shirt that has an image of an animal on it or makes a statement about animals. Animal T-shirts can be found at The Dharma Store, an online store at the PETA mall. Etsy sells creative looking animal T-shirts, so you may want to shop there as well. The Mountain is another on-line store that sells animal T-shirts.
Stop Eating Meat
PETA sells a Vegan Starter Kit for anyone who is serious about saving the animals by giving up the consumption of meat. Included in this kit are informative booklets about animals for adults as well as for children. Once you are sure you will be showing your love for animals by not eating them, you may want to purchase a few cookbooks that contain vegetarian recipes, or you may want to go online to find recipes. If you do decide to become a vegetarian, you’ll be helping yourself as well as the animals. Plant foods are healthier to eat than meat is.
Work With Animals
If you really love animals, you’ll most likely enjoy working with them. Working a job that helps animals is a fantastic way to show your love for them. If you have time on your hands and making money isn’t an issue, you may want to consider volunteering your time at an animal shelter or an animal adoption center. The ASPCA hires volunteers to do things like feed the animals, clean their enclosures, watch them, and provide other types of needed support.
For animal lovers who need to earn cash, dog and cat sitting are jobs to consider. Dog and cat walking is another option. You can apply for jobs like these on Rover, or you can start your own business.
Getting a job as a veterinarian assistant is another way to express your love for animals. This type of job involves helping the veterinarian care for the animals in an animal hospital or clinic. Note that although you must love animals to work as a veterinarian assistant, you must also be able to handle the pain of having to help an animal doctor euthanize an animal, if necessary.
Give Animal-Themed Gifts to Loved Ones
You can show that you love animals and your loved ones by purchasing and giving animal-themed gifts. A coffee mug with an image of a cat or a dog on it would be a lovely gift to give a friend or a family member. Coffee mugs with images of bears, giraffes, and other types of animals are also available.
If you shop at Etsy, you’ll find a treasure chest of animal-themed gifts like koala bear jewelry, koala bear growth charts, llama socks, baby bodysuits, and other great items. Impressive gifts that show you love animals can be found here. Buy them and spread the love.
Now that you know how to show your love for animals, do it and feel good about it. Let your actions speak your heart’s silent words.
