Make A Date With A Dog
Want to go for a hike with a four legged friend? Want to cuddle up with a furry body and a warm wet nose? Want to spend a little quality time rubbing a buddy’s tummy? Then this could be the volunteer opportunity for you.
The Date With A Dog initiative allows volunteers to spend time with our dogs on a weekly basis. From walking them for an hour to keeping them overnight for a sleepover, if you are interested in getting to know a four-legged friend this would be a great way to do it. You can even choose to foster a pup for as long as you like. Just like dating a person, you can fall in love and be together as much as you want!
Please take a look at our fantastic Heigl Hounds and fill out our registration form at the bottom of the page if this program is of interest to you.
Fostering a kitten, puppy, cat or dog provides a temporary home for an animal in need. The time frame for fostering can vary from a few days to many months depending on the level of care required.
Companion pets that need help to recover from sickness, injury, mistreatment and abuse, those that need a break from the stress of the shelter environment or young animals that require nurturing, all benefit greatly from foster care.
As a foster parent you will get to provide an animal with the proper love and attention they deserve, while they wait for adoption and a forever home. You will also be helping to socialize an animal so that it will become more adoptable and a better companion. Fostering gives a rescue cat or dog a second chance at life.
If you are interested in fostering, please contact us and we will get in touch to discuss the process with you and help to find a match with an animal that best suits your lifestyle.
