There are SO Many Ways You Can Help in our Rescue!

More easy ways to help by doing things you probably
already do but never thought of:
What about my kids? They like to help animals in need too.
We love when children are eager to learn and pitch in to help with rescue. This is the beginning of teaching them life long skills involving compassion and teamwork. There are many ways that children can help rescue in a big way!
Kid Friendly Ideas
1. Host a donation drive. This is when your child sets up a collection box in his/her school, a local community center, your office, etc., and collects donations to help current and future rescue dogs in need. Just about all dogs coming into our rescue need to be evaluated by our vet, be it a checkup and heartworm test, or it could be dentals and/or surgery (spay, neuter, injuries, etc.). Whatever it is, we not only have to cover medical expenses but also regular daily living with food, medicines, heartworm prevention, etc.
2. Host a FUNdraiser! Children can set up lemonade stands and bake sales to raise money for our rescue. Your child might think out of the box and come up with his/her own event, like an iced coffee stand, a video game competition, a scavenger hunt… the possibilities are endless!
3. Earn some allowance... and choose to sponsor one of our current rescues or donate it to the rescue as a whole! Your kid can set a goal — let’s say $20 — and work with you to do some odd jobs around the house. Once he or she has raised the donation goal, email us to set up a time to bring it to us in person so that we can be ready with a thank you. If you don’t live close enough to visit, your child can send in his donation with a note, which we’ll post on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
4. Go door to door. Have your child design fliers to carry along. (Please email us for our approval before you start handing it out.) Contact us ahead of time so we can send you a donation form to print up, then take a stroll around your apartment building or neighborhood knocking on doors, explaining the cause you're supporting, and asking for donations. Be sure you're accompanying your child for safety, and this also makes for great bonding time. Once you're done collecting, let us know so we can coordinate a time for you to drop it off so we can have a thank you prepared.
