Valencia Family Resource Library Guide: Acts of Kindness

Acts of Kindness

Acts of Kindness

When we lose a pet, we are left feeling powerless. Participating in an act of kindness on behalf of your pet can leave you feeling more powerful and can provide a sense of purpose when that feels missing. You can do these activities as a family or your child may want to participate in some on their own. 

Love a Pet in Need

Volunteering at a local shelter can look like a variety of things. At some shelters you can walk dogs who need exercise, at others you can help replacing the bedding and water for pocket pets. Call your local shelter to find out how best to help local animals who could use your love and care. 

Help a Pet in Need

Shelters have many needs, and you can help animals by donating food, clean blankets, or toys.  

Fundraise for Pets in Need

Take Care of Someone Who’s Lost Their Pet

Prepare a care package including tissues, lozenges (or other items to soothe a throat that may be sore from crying), eye drops, a sympathy card. Are there other personal things you could include? 

Treats are Always Good

Create some treats for the pet of a friend or loved one you care about. This could be a new toy to play with or a baked good appropriate for a dog. Try freezing nonfat organic yogurt with some chopped up bacon or carrot in a dixie cup for a yummy treat!
