There are many ways you can help a sanctuary! Here are just a few examples:
Sponsor An Animal
Being a monthly sponsor for an animal helps with contributing to a continual income. Having that guaranteed income is very valuable to sanctuaries and a wonderful way to help the animals.
Volunteer Your Time
Sanctuary work is A LOT of cleaning. Volunteers are gold, and committing to a couple of hours a week helping clean animal areas and feeding them makes a huge difference.
You can also volunteer your time by doing admin work and helping with social media posts. Especially helpful is if you have any special skill sets, especially in trades, for big projects like barn builds.
Other than being an animal sponsor, setting up a monthly donation or giving a one time donation is always helpful. Some sanctuaries also have Amazon wish lists. So buying items on their lists or asking what product donations they need and donating them, will help a lot.
Organizing a fundraiser is a lot of work. There are ideas from doing a birthday fundraiser on Facebook to connecting with a sanctuary and seeing if you can organize a fundraiser event for them.
Like And Share
The act of following their social media account/s, liking and sharing their content, is more helpful than you might think! It creates awareness of what they are doing to your friends and family and hopefully creates more support for the sanctuary.
