Rescued Rusti Loves String Beans

We need some assistance in maintaining our outdoor tutoring pavilion area and yard. The work involves light raking of leaves, pine cones and picking up sticks...no poop scooping we promise! The area is peaceful and quiet and all who have volunteered in the past have found their experiences quite relaxing and rewarding. You can chose to work as an individual contributor or within a group.

We are a non profit providing tutoring and educational services to those who have adopted (or are fostering) abused, abandoned animals. Our outdoor area is full of trees and beautiful botanicals in the spring and summer but we do need help to keep it neat and tidy after the leaves have dropped. Those who rescue and adopt animals deserve a zen like, full of nature setting and, with your help we can provide that type of setting.

No dogs are on site when volunteers visit (all dogs are seen by appointment only) so there are no safety risks.

And, did you know that our organization has, for the third year in a row, been the recipient of the Great NonProfits Award? You can read more about the stories generated on our behalf to support this distinction by visiting this link https://greatnonprofits.org/org/doing-right-by-rescues

Please take a look at our website to learn more about what we do. And thank you for considering us for your volunteerism.

About Doing Right By Rescues

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.


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.
