You can simply and passively help animal rescues by signing up for donation programs. The initial setup may take a minute, but these are gifts that keep on giving.When you look at a program like 'Smile Amazon', you may think donating less than 1% is fairly useless. However, for some of the more popular rescues, this tiny amount actually can become significant. You just have to remember to go to Smile Amazon when checking out. Initially, the site may redirect you to Smile, but over time that function seems to disappear. https://www.smile.amazon.com
The Roundup App allows you to increase your purchase price to the nearest dollar on credit card or debit purchases. Then that amount is taken from your checking account and donated as a lump sum to the charity of your choice. We were told by a customer service rep that, unlike Acorns or other round up programs, you can utilize the service without a checking account. The roundup would take place strictly on the card itself. There is a one time donation of $1 to test the validity of the credit card chosen and you can add a maximum donation cap to the card. https://roundupapp.com/#/
iGive is a site with 2,000+ retailers like Walmart and Petco. Just sign up and choose a rescue, then make purchases at your favorite store using their button. Percentages vary among retailers, so compare Petco to Petsmart and buy where the donation is higher, as long as the product price is comparable. https://support.igive.com/kb/a115/how-igive-works.aspx
