We need volunteers to help with our GARDEN of WEEDING! We are trying to remove some invasive species to make room for native plantings to welcome birds, beneficial insects and wildlife into our non profit's outdoor area. We are a certified wildlife habitat with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) and a member of the Hopewell Valley Open Space/Private Land Stewardship Program. You will be assisting with weed removal (no harsh chemicals-just plain old digging them up). And we may need assistance with plantings when the time is right. We provide all the tools. Our goals are to keep our NWF certification in good standing and provide a zen like atmosphere for the rescued dogs (and their people) who visit seeking tutoring. We also need help picking up sticks on our walkways-because once a dog gets a stick.....well you know, game on!
We are a non profit organiztion providing tutoring to kind people who adopt from animal shelters or breed rescue groups or those who are fostering animals from shelters or rescue groups. Our six acre facility simulates the environment one may find in a park or on a hike so visitors can "practice" walking their newly rescued dog in a safe, supervised environment.
Our educational services help abused, abandonded animals who are transitioning from homeless to a forever home. We do not kennel dogs on site, but rather offer an educational environment, gently used equipment, and free tutoring to help those on both sides of the leash when a rescued dog is adopted or fostered.
If this opportunity interests you please take a peek at our website (ww.doingrightbyrescues.org) for a detailed description of the work we do to help those who help animals. And thank you in advance for whatever you can do to support our mission-we could not do what we do without the kindness of volunteers!
Thank you for reading about our opportunity and I am hoping that our paths cross, Pam Morgan
