There are so many ways you can volunteer to help.
********** One way is to set up a collection drive in your neighborhood. You can make a wish list from our donations needed page and print them out. Pass them out in your neighborhood and put on there that you will pick up all items (state that they should leave them on their front porch in a bag marked for rescue) on a certain date. Give it about one week for people to be able to get things together and go out and buy items to donate. Pick up the donated items on the date your put on your list and then call to plan a trip to bring out the donations to the kennel. If you have a problem getting to come to the kennel we will be happy to come pick up all the items you were able to collect for us. We really appreciate and need your help with fundraising.
********* Another way is to ASK your family to pitch in and help you support our mission, ASK for help from the adults in your immediate family (aunts, uncles, brother and sisters if they are over 18), grandparents and your parents. ASK each one to buy a minimum 10.00 gift card from one of the following places...(come one most anyone can afford that amount to help save a life)...cards are needed from Lowes, Home depot, Sams, Walmart, Petsmart, Petco, Target and Harris Teeter. These cards are used when we run our of medication, dog food, puppy pads, yogurt or cottage cheese for dogs with upset tummies and building supplies and maintenance items. Once you have collected your cards call and plan a day to come out and help at the kennel. You can come walk dogs, poop patrol, vacuum, do waters and help socialize new pups. This is a fun and enjoyable way to make a big difference. The gift cards are a BIG NEED FOR US... CAN YOU HELP????
We are so thankful for each person who takes the time to come help us with the care of our rescue pets. If you would be willing to spend some time helping please let us know. We can always use help walking dogs, brushing dogs, cleaning, training and just giving lots of love and attention to the rescue pets we save. WE LOVE VOLUNTEERS!
If you just want to come walk and play with dogs PLEASE CONSIDER STOPPING BY ONE OF THE MENTIONED LOCATIONS and pick up a gift card before you come. SHOW THE LOVE FOR THE PETS IN RESCUE by putting something into our mission. YOUR HELP IS SO GREATLY needed and appreciated.
