Do you want to help your local animal shelter beyond just writing a check? One way you can help is to be a transporter for animals. Many organizations that pull at-risk animals from kill shelters need volunteers to pick them up. They also need drivers to take adopted animals to vet appointments or adopt-a-thons during high-occupancy months. You can also take an adopted dog or cat to its new foster home. Just making a shelter aware of your travel plans can help connect the dots so they can coordinate where you’re going to help an animal in need.
