Giving Tuesday Support Your Local Shelters

5 Ways to Enhance Your Impact This Giving Tuesday

If you have a big heart, it can be overwhelming and difficult to choose between the hundreds – or even thousands – of organizations asking for your help on Giving Tuesday. At Matrix Partners, we’re pet marketers. But even more importantly, we’re pet parents who love to support our local rescues, as well as other wonderful organizations throughout the country. That’s why we’ve chosen to support Live Like Roo this Giving Tuesday! We understand it can be hard to donate during this time of year, so here are a few ways you can help animals AND shop for holiday presents all at once.

Live Like Roo
Surprise the coffee-loving dog parent in your life with a mug from Live Like Roo or give your pet-obsessed best friend a wine tumbler so that they can sip and relax with their furry companion this holiday season! Your favorite book worm will appreciate the Live Like Roo Cancer Warriors book, and you’ll feel good knowing your purchase helped dozens of animals in need of extra love this holiday season.

The Anti-Cruelty Society
Celebrate the holiday season in true ugly sweater style by shopping at The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Online Store. You and your furry companion can match with new holiday pajamas, crewnecks, and pet bandanas. Or surprise the animal lover in your life with an animal welfare themed t-shirt. Every purchase helps take care of animals in need.

One Tail at a Time
Is most of your holiday shopping done via Amazon? If so, start your shopping from AmazonSmile and select One Tail at a Time as your charity. For each order placed, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the total back to the organization’s homeless dogs! It’s a quick and easy way to give back to animals, all while completing your gift shopping.

Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County (HAWS)
Check out HAWS’s “Giving Guide” and select from several different gift options for your animal-loving friends and family members, such as a personalized ornament from Peerless Visions or an Unleashed with Love dog photography gift certificate. A portion of all proceeds is donated to HAWS in order to keep their rescue animals happy and healthy!

Second City Canine Rescue
Browse through Second City Canine Rescue’s Etsy page to find the perfect apparel, ornament, magnet, sticker or decal for the special people in your life. You can also choose Second City Canine Rescue as your charity when shopping via AmazonSmile this holiday season. Both options allow you to help better the lives of numerous shelter pups.

Matrix Partners encourages you to donate to your local animal shelter this Giving Tuesday, because all animals deserve to be loved and cared for especially during the holiday season!
