Peace, Love, Rescue
Help us to help those who rescue animals

We are seeking a volunteer (or volunteers) who could provide some creative ideas as to ways in which we could improve our indoor areas so that they are more pleasing to the eye. This could be a great case study/project for a student of interior design to work with a nonprofit. This could also be a great "billboard" for an established interior design professional to showcase skill sets and perhaps draw customer interest (as we see about 5-7 new clients each week).

We are also seeking donation of gently used or "leftovers" from other design projects that might improve the look and feel of our space.

In return we would of course display your business cards in our office area.

We provide tutoring to those who have adopted (or are fostering) animals from shelters or rescue organizations. We are situated on six beautiful acres and have an indoor and outdoor tutoring area. We try hard to provide a zen-like atmosphere for people and their pets and would greatly appreciate any assistance to help us look more pleasing or Zen to visitors. When volunteers visit no dogs are on site (all dogs are seen by appointment only) so there are no safety risks for visitors who wish to volunteer with us.

Thank you for considering us for your volunteerism,
Pam

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.
