So many courageous two- and four-legged heroes have worked hard to help others over the years… now it’s our turn to give back.
In honor of Valentine’s Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week, we at SDF are challenging you to #ShareTheLove this month by doing something selfless for our nation’s two- and four-legged heroes.
So, where to begin? Here are a few ideas to get you started – whichever you choose, be sure to tag SDF and use the hashtag #ShareTheLove!
1) #ShareTheLove by simply sharing SDF’s posts on social media. Whether posting, tweeting or gramming, you can help make a difference by spreading the word and sharing your love for the Search Dogs and the amazing work they do.
2) Make a monthly gift in honor of your favorite canine hero and tell us why he or she is your favorite. Your monthly donation can #ShareTheLove all year round and make a difference by helping us find and turn rescued shelter dogs into rescuers. Plus, see below on details about how you can #ShareTheLove for a chance to win SDF gear!
3) We wouldn’t be where we are today without the incredible canines that are routinely rescued from shelters across the country. Whether it’s assisting with an adoption event, providing exercise or socialization, or even donating veterinary services, volunteers play a crucial role in helping animals find their forever home.
4) Old towels, blankets, toys, food, treats — you name it, animal shelters are always in need of supplies! If you can’t make it to your local shelter, you can always donate to an online wish list.
5) First responders constantly put their life on the line to help and care for those in need. Give thanks by dropping off a home-cooked meal at your local fire station or buy a round of coffees for the team of paramedics starting a double shift.
6) Nothing says ‘thank you’ like a handwritten note. Take 5-10 minutes out of your day to craft a thoughtful letter or postcard to a soldier or military working dog overseas, or a wounded warrior or veteran at home.
7) Bundle up your sweetheart in SDF gear just in time for Valentine’s Day — right now, all vintage SDF logowear is 20% off while supplies last! Visit ShopSDF.com to see this great deal and more!
