Volunteer at Your Local Shelter Like Martha Stewart!

Pledge Your Time and Be a Shelter Pet Hero!

Even if you can't spare a few bucks, one thing you can always donate is your time. And what better way to spend a few hours over the weekend (or if you're lucky, during the week) than playing with a few furry friends at a local shelter? Purina's Be My Hero program helps you do just that.

And it's not just about playtime with a few pups — when you pledge to spend time volunteering at one of the 7,500 participating shelters across the country, Purina will donate $5 dollars to pets in need. Hey, if Martha Stewart can do it (that's one of her first kittens), I think you can to.

I'm not signed up for that program, but I do volunteer for 2 hours every weekend at the MSPCA, playing with the kitties. :)
