Use Pet Coupons to Help Animal Shelters

by Pet Coupon Savings on September 13, 2013

According to the Humane Society 6 to 8 million pets are placed into shelters every year in the United States. A lot goes into taking care of these animals. Everything from shelter, food, water, staff, medical treatment and much more is required in order to ensure these animals get the chance at a forever home. Most animal shelters in the United States operate on grants and donations.

Times are tough for the average American and it’s understandable if you do not have extra funds to donate. However, there are other ways to help out local shelters. Almost every shelter in the nation will accept donations of food, treats and other supplies. Did you know you can donate these items without spending hardly any money at all?

How to Use Pet Coupons to Help Animal Shelters

Use Pet Coupons! 

Every Sunday you will find an insert in your Sunday newspaper. These inserts are filled with valuable coupons for hygiene products, food and even pet food! Make sure to clip these coupons and watch for sales at your local grocery store or drug store. Using coupons will allow you to really stock up on pet supplies at next to nothing at all. You can also print pet coupons right here at Pet Coupon Savings.

Use a Rewards Card

Stores like Petco and Petsmart have a rewards program available to their customers. When you purchase pet supplies you can earn points, discounts and coupons! You can use your rewards to get some items for local pet shelters. This is an easy way to get free or close to free items!

Sign Up for Freebies

There are tons of places on the internet that offer freebies. Make sure to sign up for any pet freebies when you come across them. You can even ask friends and family to sign up for these freebies. Having friends and family sign up for these freebies will increase the amount of supplies you are able to donate.

Turn in Rebates

Companies are always offering rebates on pet supplies. When you come across these rebates take advantage of them. Often times you can get pet food and other supplies for free! This is the perfect opportunity to donate items to your local pet shelter.

Use Your Drug Store Card

If you coupon then you are probably aware of programs like Extra Care Bucks, Up+ Rewards and Balance Rewards. When you earn these rewards you can use them along with a coupon to get very cheap pet supplies. This will allow you to donate items that shelters desperately need without spending much money at all.

These are all really great tips, and I can’t think of a better reason to put them into action than to help out your local shelters. Animals without homes break my heart. I just wish I could take them all in and love them all, even though we have three cats as it is. But this–donating what you can when you can and using coupons and rewards cards to save–is a really great step.

Very true Holly. Thanks for stopping by. :)

Such a great idea to share the savings with our furry friends in need. I used to send my pet food coupons to our local animal shelter. They gave them away to the new pet owners to help them save money right away on food.

Yay for supporting shelters! Rescue is a hard line to volunteer in and posts like this encourage me greatly that others share my passion.
