Alicia Silverstone Says Help Animals While Spring Cleaning

Now that the last winter storms seem to have passed we can all start to think about spring cleaning. Putting down the hot cocoa, snuggly flannel pajama pants and warm soups and going through cupboards, drawers and, yes, even the dreaded basement or attic.

While you’re searching for things to get rid of to make your home a bit more habitable, remember that one human’s trash is a homeless critter’s treasure. Animal advocate and actress Alicia Silverstone has some tips on items that you should look for to donate to your local animal shelter.

The actress writes on The Kind Life, “You can use your spring cleaning to get rid of old things you’re not using any more and donate these items to animal shelters to help them not only save lives, but make the lives of those animals a little softer, warmer and more comfortable.”

What made her list? Things you already have but might not want anymore like used towels and bedding, dog or cat toys, or maybe your companion’s old crate or discarded bed. Check out her full list and contact your local shelter to ask them what they might want.

Not everyone has spare cash these days, but most of us (unfortunately) have stuff we don’t want. Maybe it’s that ripped towel that has sat in the back of your linen closet for years. Or the blanket you used to use all the time but have since replaced. Cleanse your space and help out an animal at the same time. Grab it, donate it and pat yourself on the back for doing an easy and effective good deed.
