In a perfect world, every fur baby would have a happy home and even happier owners who get to call them their pets. Sadly, some fur babies are still waiting on welcoming owners and have to be put into shelters instead. While you would take all of them in if you could, there are other ways you can help. There are animal shelters to volunteer at in NYC that will show that even though you can't take them all home, you're helping them find comfort where they are for now.
Shelters could use all the volunteering they can get because they often are only supplied a certain amount of money each year to keep functioning. They have a monster pile of other things to worry about, and your two hands and devotion could alleviate the stresses that come with keeping these places up and running. If you are a fur baby enthusiast, volunteering will seriously be a breeze and you'll immediately carve a soft spot for most, if not all, of the animals in the shelter. While NYC is only one of the many places you can volunteer at a shelter, here are a few places to look into if you find yourself in the Big Apple.
