    Donate your time, money, food, towels, old newspaper, toys, even cleaning products help, etc.... We have alot of volunteers that come in just to walk the dogs, or play with the cats.

    First, you can make sure that all of your animals are fixed to help with the over population problem. Then you can donate money, blankets, food, treats, etc. Also, many shelters need volunteers to help with cleaning of cages and to help with the socialization of the animals. I also live in TX and my shelter always needs volunteers to help walk the dogs.

    Many animal shelters are understaffed and under funded. See if you can volunteer some time working there or maybe purchase some pet food or other supplies for them. Monetary donations would probably be welcome, too.

    Also, if you know anyone who wants a pet, encourage them to adopt from the shelter.

    I'm sure they could use volunteers as well as money and pet supplies.
