Lady Bug Katie says Hi!
Ladybug Katie says Hi!

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 native species 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 with their rescued animals. No animals will be on site when you volunteer to help us-so there are no worries about safety concerns....and no pooper scooper duty either-we promise!

We provide all tools (sanitized beforehand) but suggest that you bring your own gardening gloves and wear closed toe shoes. Volunteer assignments are set in place so that only one volunteer is in an area at a time so safe distancing can be maintained.

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 four 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, abandoned 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 considering our non profit for your volunteerism. You can see some pictures of our site at www.doingrightbyrescues.org. Hoping to hear from you, Pam

About Doing Right By Rescues

Location:

P.O. Box 552, Pennington, NJ 08534, US

Mission Statement

We are a non profit with two missions; To provide tutoring to individuals who have rescued dogs and to provide low cost educational sessions relevant to those who rescue or foster animals.

Description

We provide assistance with non traditional dog training (not formal obedience) for those who have kindly opened their homes and hearts to rescued dogs. We specialize in providing tips, training and equipment recommendations to deal with reactivity issues which sometimes come with rescued dogs. We also provide hands on customized instruction at our six acre zen-like training facility to help people learn techniques to calm and destress their rescued dogs.

Whether a person has adopted a dog (or is fostering a dog for a non profit organization) we work one on one (no group classes) to support them as they help dogs transition from rescue to rehomed. We also offer home visits for rescued dogs adopted by senior citizens who may be unable to come to our facility.

We are certified Tellington Touch Practitioners and members of the Pet Professionals Guild for Force Free Training and have signed a pledge to employ only kind, positive reinforcement and humane handling techniques at our tutoring barn.
