YOU can also support our campaign against cruelty by helping us spread awareness.  Money is GREAT and certainly helps us take care of our rescued animals, however; unity, knowledge and education are equally as powerful!  Here are some helpful ways you can contribute in addition to donating: 

 

First, if you are willing and able, we need fosters!  Fostering is a great way to contribute your time and to do something selfless for a deserving animal.  Our fosters provide a safe and loving environment to our rescued pets while we look for the perfect forever home.  If fostering is something you're interested in, please email us at pidinc@aol.com OR go to our Contact page and fill out the form. 

     

Second, spread the word! Please make sure to tell your friends and family to ADOPT and NOT SHOP! Many stores selling puppies and kittens obtain their animals through puppy mills and various unlicensed backyard breeders.  These practices lead to a number of problems including overpopulation, over breeding and worst of all cruelty. Many of these puppy mills keep their "product" caged, undernourished and without any basic necessities.  The numbers of animals killed in shelters across the country are climbing and although the "No-Kill" movement is growing, we must all do our part. That means, saying NO to puppy mills and backyard breeders!


Third, get social! Attend our adoption and fundraiser events! Also, join us on Facebook! Please like and share our posts about adoptables and daily news.  For you bloggers, we will be sharing a monthly blog that will be showcased on Facebook and here on the website!  


Fourth, educate yourself! Do your homework before you adopt a pet.  Make sure you understand what size pet is right for you.  Learn about proper training techniques, healthy diet and exercise routines.  Be sure that you can and will take proper care of your new adopted friend.  Remember, they depend on YOU to care for them.  They will reward with love and respect, but you must do the same. 


​Lastly, respect and love your pets, they will reward you with the same - and then some. 


Thank you from the Pets In Distress, Inc. Family!
