All kinds of animals in and around Indianapolis need your help - check out the links in this short list for volunteer info from local rescues and shelters in need. And remember that no matter your skill set or interests, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities beyond scooping poop; just ask how you can help (or make it easy and just donate something from their wish lists!)

ARPO (Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership)

Cats Haven

FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

FIDO (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside)

ReTails Indy

If we left anyone out, please leave your favorite Indy-area animal-welfare group in the comments below.

And remember: If you want a certain kind of animal, there are breed rescues for pretty much every domestic animal. Check Petfinder or Google (for example, search for "bulldog breed rescue") before you buy a pet from a pet store or breeder: Most out-of-state breed-rescue groups are more than willing to transport a rescued animal to you, or at least meet you half way.

And check out adoptable cats on NUVO.net every Meow Monday, as well as dogs on Woof Wednesday.

As NUVO's Digital Platforms Editor, I make sure there's good stuff for you on our website and the social media (as the youth call it).

When I'm not connected to a screen, I'm hanging out with animals, making noise and enjoying the finer things in life like food, drinks and trees.
