Up to eight million dogs and cats are placed in animal shelters each year. And while it might be better than living on the street, overcrowded conditions and a lack of resources mean many furry friends can end up in kennels and crates that are less than warm and cozy. It may be summer, but here’s a way to help pets before winter sets in: Hold a blanket drive and donate the proceeds to your local shelter (find one near you by clicking on Adoption at aspca.org—the site will search for nearby SPCA’s, humane societies, and animal control organizations). “For an animal seeking a cozy place to rest, a warm blanket can make all the difference in the world,” says Amy Sacks, director of The Pixie Project, an animal adoption nonprofit in Portland, Oregon.
