Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Making Hay

A common fantasy among those who rescue dogs is having an animal sanctuary. I think most people know it will be a lot of work but they'd be doing something they love and just think of all the dogs they can save!

Less common is considering things like making sure you have enough hay for the cows and horses, slaughtering your own beef for food (for the dogs), or dealing with snow removal.
