Asking for an animal loving arborist or tree professional

Doing Right By Rescues

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
Peace, Love, Rescue
Help us to help those who rescue animals

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 the helping hands of an arborist or a tree professional to do the following;
Trim and down some small trees so that we can maintain our certification from the National Wildlife Federation as a Wildlife Habitat, and provide a park like environment for our canine clients and the people who love them!
In exchange we would of course display your business card/signage for our clients (who all have yards)!

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.

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.
