During the holiday season, oftentimes we overlook the importance of giving. Sure, we buy plenty of presents for our friends and family, but what about others? There are plenty of people in need and countless charities you can support this time of year. After all, it is the season of giving. Whether you’re helping a homeless shelter or animals in need, there are many worthy causes that can use your support. Below is a list of West Alabama charities you can consider supporting this holiday season.
Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter
One of the most memorable gifts a child can receive for Christmas is a new pet. This year, the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter has a $25 adoption fee. The shelter is a non-profit organization that focuses on finding permanent homes for the hundreds of animals brought to the shelter each year.
If your family is not quite ready to own a pet just yet, consider donating to the shelter’s Amazon Wishlist. The Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter seeks adoptions, donations, and volunteers. Learn more on their website today!
