Are you a pug-lover … possibly even a pugaholic? You are not alone. There are many others crazy for pugs. College student volunteers, and 18 year old high schoolers, make great contributions serving lovable pugs. And, they not only save the organization money but time. Time to get many important things done and make sure no pug is left behind. DFW Pug rescue is run by folks who generously give their time, homes, and hearts to help. We need volunteers in a variety of areas, including, but not limited to: events, fostering, transportation, social media, newsletter, and marketing.

This is a puppy raising program that provides a unique opportunity for teens to assist Good Dogs…very good dogs, who are also providing a support. Trained Good Dogs help children and families living with autism. As a volunteer puppy raiser, you will provide a puppy with a safe home, take them to obedience classes, feed them a healthy diet, socialize them and give them lots of love. Your dedication will benefit another family for years to come and lead to lasting memories for you and the families that adopt the Good Dogs.
The great thing about becoming an animal volunteer is that there are so many ways to help animals: Adopt, foster, volunteer, or in this case, send Lignetics wood pellet fuel. As random as that sounds, it’s really important to the animals. If you are feeling less adventurous, the shelter can also use cat carriers, pooper scoopers, and basic office supplies. Most of these items are easy to find on Amazon. The Kootenai Humane Society, in Hayden ID, appreciates student leaders who organize supply drives for these much-needed items.
We have a volunteer project for students who seek leadership opportunities. Lesson volunteers work directly with instructors, therapists, and staff members assisting before, during, and after a rider’s lesson. Students train to become side walkers and leaders. Each member of the volunteer team has a specific responsibility. They are working directly with the rider. Sidewalkers are a helpful extension of the instructor, giving encouragement and physical support. Working directly with the horse, leaders groom, tack, and lead the horse at the walk and trot throughout the lesson.
