As Mother’s Day is approaching many are looking for creative gift ideas.
The Joplin Humane Society is encouraging people to consider sponsoring a pet. Shelter manager Lysa Boston says this will allow them to help homeless pets by offsetting costs for potential owners.
For Mother’s Day, she says they are offering to send special Mother’s Day cards. This will involve a photo of a pet that is being sponsored.
“I think it’s cool way to honor your mom, if you know that your mom is a dog lover or a cat lover, why not do something in their name to help a homeless pet? I just can’t think of a much nicer thing to do,” says Lysa Boston.
If you are interested in sponsoring a pet you can call the Joplin Humane Society at 417-623-3642.
