Not in a position to adopt a dog at this time? Consider contacting your local rescue shelter about their Foster Programs for dogs. School holidays, Easter and Christmas are very busy times for many shelters. They are always looking for long term, casual and weekend carers to assist.
If you can't adopt - foster. If you can't foster - sponsor. If you can't sponsor - volunteer. If you can't volunteer - donate. If you can't donate - educate, network and crosspost. EVERYONE can do something, large or small to help save a shelter dog or other animals.
Have you heard of Puppy Sit? Love dogs but can't commit to pet ownership? Why not be a puppy sitter. Assistance Dogs Australia need sitters when their puppy raisers are on holiday. All major expenses are paid, such as food, vet bills, heartworm and flea control, and you can enjoy being part of a group and learn dog-training skills. To be considered, ideally you should not be working full time, have no children under school age, have a suitable secure yard and be willing to have an inside dog. Visit Assistance Dogs Australia for more information.
Fundraising is another great way of getting involved with your local rescue shelter and helping. Check out these fundraising ideas to get you started.
Remember that dogs and
other pets can't do a lot of things for themselves and
that they depend on you!
