Are you Looking for a way to help senior cats and dogs?

There are so many ways to help and they are limited only by our imaginations. While donations are always welcome, they are merely the tip of the iceberg!  We’ve listed a few ideas here.

Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for a rewarding way to spend your time while giving back to your community and earning the adoration and cuddles of senior cats and dogs? Well read on! We can use volunteers to sit with some of our senior cats … just sit and read or knit or listen to the radio … and keep some of our senior kitties company. Are dogs more your speed? They love visitors too.  Do you have other skills that could help us out? Are you a grant writer? a social media guru? a dog walker? a groomer? Drop us a line and let us know how you can help!

Spread the Word

We’re a small and relatively new organization.  As such, getting the word out about us is essential!  Please help us by following us, liking and sharing our posts, and leaving us comments on social media.  Leashes End actively posts to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Why not leave us a review on Google while you’re at it?  And let’s not forget about good old fashioned word of mouth.  Please tell your friends and neighbors about us!  You’d be surprised at how important it is to be known.  We’re very proud of our sanctuary and want the world to know!

Facbook or Instagram Fundraiser

Facebook & Instagram have made it really easy for users to set up a fundraiser for their favorite charity … which we hope is Leashes End!  Create a fundraiser to celebrate your birthday, other special occasion, or just because.  You’ll be raising not only much needed donations for Leashes End but also awareness of what we do to help senior pets in need.  Learn more about Instagram fundraising here and Facebook fundraising here. wish list

Meaningful Change

This is one of my FAVORITES and it’s a great way for young kids to help! If you’re like me, you have jars and charity boxes just brimming with loose change around your house and office. But what can you do with it? Most banks won’t accept it unless you sort and roll it. But did you know that you can redeem your loose change in any CoinStar machine (found in most supermarkets) for an gift card and skip the fees? If you then wish to donate your gift card to Leashes End, just email us the alphanumeric code. It all adds up to significant savings for us. We’ll turn your loose change into meaningful change for our seniors!

Walk for a dog!

Don’t just take your dog for a walk … take your walk for a dog!  What if I told you that you could help the seniors of Leashes End just by walking?

Download the free WoofTrax Walk for a Dog app wherever you download your apps.

Set up a profile.  Be sure to designate Leashes End in Maryland as your charity.

Then, use the app to track your walk.

The more people actively walking with the free Walk for a Dog app, the greater the donation Leashes End will receive! So please, tell your family and friends.  Use the app each time you grab for the leash or just head out for a stroll. It’s healthy for you, your dog, and your favorite shelter or rescue.  Every Walk for a Dog counts, whether it’s a walk around the block or a three-mile hike.
