We Love Volunteers!

We are a non profit providing free tutoring to those who have adopted (or are fostering) dogs from shelters or rescue organizations. We do not kennel dogs onsite, adopters visit with their dogs to receive help with training, behavioral challenges or assistance with transitioning dogs from homeless to forever homed. We work one on one with rescued dogs (no group classes). We try to maintain a zen-like environment (inside of our tutoring barn as well as outdoors on our six acre facility) so that people and pets can learn in a stress free environment.

We need helping hands to do the following; picking up sticks, raking up leaves and pine cones, pulling weeds, planting flowers when they are donated. Flexible times around your availability and no pooper scooping we promise!

Feel free to bring a friend or just volunteer solo-we are grateful for the helping hands!

Our volunteers are special people as they don't get to see the people and pets they are helping (most of our canine clients are super scared or reactive towards people so when volunteers are onsite no dogs are visiting). But please know that your helping hands free up our hands to be able to reach and teach more rescued dogs and their people.

Please visit our website to see pictures of our website so you know that you will be working in a very peaceful outdoor environment should you chose us for your volunteerism. www.doingrightbyrescues.org

Small non profits like ours are only sustainable because of the kindness of volunteers, so thank you for taking a peek at our website and considering us for your volunteerism.

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

About Doing Right By Rescues


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.


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.
