Be The Change

This post is also available in : French German Italian

BlogtheChangeThis article was drafted by Loupi and Zorro there is a few weeks, before their disappearance.

On the occasion of Be The Change Day of January, Cathy Keisha wrote a very great article on the various ways to help shelters.
Claire donates regularly in cash, and by receiving the greeting card of Christmas of one of the shelters that she supports, she also received from them a list of examples of useful supplies.
We chose to share the list of SOS Chats Noiraigue here, because it completes well Cathy’s article:

  • stamps and office equipment (black felt-tip pens, wrap C5 without windows, etc.)
  • Whiskas ” Temptation ” and “Dentabits” and any sorts of sticks
  • cleaning product for windows and bag of refill
  • cleaning product for grounds in stone floor (*brand quoted)
  • product of cleaning and maintenance for wooden furniture (*brand quoted)
  • working gloves for the garden
  • spray or foam for carpet
  • laundry washing powder
  • dish washing liquid
  • household gloves, kitchen roll, toilet paper, refuse bags 110 L, mop with a side which scratches, rags, brushes and dustpans
  • cat trees with sisal;
  • benches and wooden or wicker chairs
  • flashlight
  • anything that comes into your head and which could be of use to cats or to maintenance of the shelter

Paw in the paw with our pals !

    And shelters are so glad to receive your donations. Don’t forget community groups who work with neutering feral cats, too. They need all the help they can get, especially now, kitten season.

    We volunteer at a rescue as we have time (lucky us), but if you can’t them giving things is equally vital. VITAL!

    We hope with all our hearts that you have Zorro back soon. It must hurt your hearts with the worry. Come Home Zorro.

    Great post and thanks for the shout out! After I wrote my article, I made a donation to A Call 4 Paws. There was cat food, treats, litter boxes, even a cat tree. The item she was most excited about was the bag full of laundry detergent. We change our sheets and they have to change the kitties’ sheets.

    Having volunteered with a rescue, and worked in a cat shelter – I can attest to just how important the seemingly mundane items on the needed list are. I especially love the last item listed 🙂 Kudos to you for both your generosity and getting the word out about what is needed to help our homeless friends. Paw power!!

    Thank you for blogging the change for animals,

    Fantastic post – people often don’t think about these kind of items and how shelters could really use them!
