12 things that you have unused and that the animal shelters need

There are many animal shelters around the world that have to manage as they can to care for the animals that are arriving with very few resources.

According to an ASPCA survey, 29% of the animals in the United States have been adopted from a shelter. These numbers, fortunately, are rising and although we know that you can not adopt all the dogs that you would like, you can help them by bringing them all kinds of things that you have at home that you probably do not use anymore.

Discover everything that you can donate to animal shelters:

1- Towels and blankets

Animal shelters are the most needed since they serve both to keep them warm and to clean and dry them. If you are going to renew the towels or blankets in your home, take the time to take the old ones to the animal shelter instead of throwing them away.

2- Old baby bottles
