There is no better way to celebrate the season of love than by sharing it with others! Offleash’d is all about building connections and making the world a better place, so here’s a little inspo to help you get involved in your community this Valentine’s Day. Gather your best buds, bring your SO, or fly solo with your precious pet in tow and Spread the Love!
DIY Pet Treats
It’s time to put all that Pinterest scrolling to good use! This Valentine’s Day, get creative in the kitchen and bake some DIY treats that you can distribute to friends and family, local shelters, and neighborhood pets. No matter what kind of pet you are baking for, there are tons of fun, easy recipes that require minimal ingredients and equipment. Here are a few to get you started!
If you really want to get into the spirit, use cookie cutters or fun ice tray molds (these are the perfect size for smaller pets like rabbits and guinea pigs) and give your homemade treats some flair. Bonus points for heart-shaped goodies because you know… Valentine’s Day!
Volunteer at a Local Animal Shelter
Volunteering at the animal shelter isn’t all about playing with cute animals. From laundry duty to administrative work, there are so many positions that need to be filled for shelters to run smoothly and efficiently. Get in touch with your local animal rescue to see what sort of volunteers are needed and how you can help. You can also check out The Humane Societyvolunteer page and filter by location to find virtual and in-person positions at Humane Societies throughout the country that match your availability and skill set.
If you are looking to volunteer on a larger scale, you could help organize an adoption drive or fundraising event. This is a great way for larger groups, companies, and organizations to get involved in a great cause and help pets find their fur-ever homes.
We would love to see how you Spread the Love this Valentine’s Day - tag us @offleashd to share all your favorite moments while out and about in your community.
