Each of us has our own mission, and the mission of Vegan Fox is much broader than vegan and environmentally friendly cosmetics. Our goal is to do good and inspire others to do the same, so we dedicate our free time and resources to tidying up the environment and loving animals.
During this time, support is especially needed for animal shelters, so we invite you to help anyone who can! Not all countries have sufficient financial support for animal shelters.
There are different ways to help animals in animal shelters. Shelter staff and residents will be very grateful for donations that make daily life easier, help reduce maintenance costs or improve the shelter area.
Such donations include:
- Leashes and collars
- Feeding bowls
- Dog food (good quality canned food) and treats
- Litter and sand for cat toilets
- Materials for fence repair and insulation of huts
- Waste paper
- Dog and cat toys
- Good quality straw
- Blankets, bedspreads, sheets and towels of natural materials
The list of necessary things may change, so before going to the chosen shelter, we recommend that you contact the shelter staff and find out what donations are currently relevant.
Another way you can provide support is through work. Become a shelter volunteer, visit cats or go for walks with dogs. Although each animal shelter may have slightly different visitation rules, the principle remains the same: anyone who is at least 14 years old and can take responsibility for the animal entrusted can go for a walk with the dogs.
Of course, the biggest support you can give to shelter residents is adoption. Choosing an animal is a responsible step, so this decision should not be a whim of the moment. All the pros and cons should be carefully considered, and your ability to care for the animal taken from the shelter should be seriously considered. Before deciding to adopt a dog or cat from a shelter, ask yourself – can I devote enough time and attention to this animal? Will I have enough patience? Is it financially affordable? Can I provide a good home? And only if the answers to all these questions are positive, you can become a foster parent. Otherwise, your time has not yet come, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help.
If you want to support homeless animals in a shelter, you can always make a donation or become a regular donor. Your support will feed, care for and ensure the welfare of the animals in the shelter.
On the other hand, if you want to help wild animals, we invite you to think a little broader. Become a fox friend and help stop cruelty to captive wild animals. Help clean up Latvia’s forests and meadows by clearing the environment of waste. Promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle, thus reducing the amount of waste that harms wild animals, birds and fish, or support producers who think and care about nature and its inhabitants by choosing their products.
You also give a helping hand when you buy Vegan Fox products, because we can do better things to improve the environment. Finally – share, speak and support ideas aimed at promoting animal welfare and educating the public on these issues, because only together can we increase good!
See you again! Your Vegan Fox
