If you’ve maxed out on available space for new furry friends, don’t worry! There are still lots of ways you can support the rescues and shelters who participate in My Furry Valentine.
1.) Find out what types of giving programs your work has available.
Lots of workplaces have some type of workplace giving program available. These can include anything from employee matching gifts to annual giving campaigns to donations through payroll deduction.
In an effort to make it easier than ever to give, we’ve created two online spaces where you can donate. Our Crowdrise page explains why mega adoptions make a difference when it comes to decreasing the number of pet euthanasia cases each year, and highlights all the ways your donation helps make the event a success.
There are a LOT of people who work behind the scenes to make this day a success, but we can always use more volunteers. Plus, you get to hang around adorable animals all day and meet people who share your love for all things furry. All you need to do is fill out the volunteer registration form to let us know how you’d like to pitch in, and we’ll follow up with more info.
4.) Bring a friend!
Maybe you’re not able to adopt right now, but you know someone who’s been thinking about it… maybe it’s a friend who doesn’t really know much about pet adoption yet. My Furry Valentine is a great place to introduce people to the local animal rescue and shelter community in our area and help break down some of the misconceptions people have about adoptable animals.
If you have other ideas or ways you’d like to get involved in, let us know! We’re always interested in growing our MFV family, so we can continue to connect more and more adoptable animals with their new families every year.
And of course, if you DO decide you have a little extra room at home, you’re bound to find the perfect match just waiting to tug at your heartstrings. We hope to see you there! The 6th Annual My Furry Valentine will be held February 11-12, 2016 at the Sharonville Convention Center.
