As you make your hol­i­day gift list, re­mem­ber lo­cal pet shel­ters. You can do­nate dol­lars and items, or vol­un­teer time and tal­ents. “[Peo­ple] can sup­port the Hu­mane Society Naples in many ways,” says Rachael John­ston, mar­ket­ing co­or­di­na­tor.

Cash (mailed or via on­line), ve­hi­cles, gifts such as blan­kets, toys and treats are needed, as are vol­un­teers. “Other ways to help is by cre­at­ing a fundraiser on Face­book to ben­e­fit HSN, by pur­chas­ing a cus­tom brick-paver to honor some­one spe­cial, or even by sell­ing hol­i­day cook­ies in the neigh­bor­hood, of­fice or at school, and then do­nat­ing sales [or a per cen­t­age],” says John­ston.

Also con­sider show­ing sup­port at a Nov. 10 fash­ion show and lun­cheon, and the 12th an­nual Run for the Paws on Jan. 27.
