There are so many ways you can help…
Victorian Dog Rescue is primarily a voluntary organisation. However we do pay for some administration assistance to keep us up to date and to enable us to operate professionally. Everything else is carried out by volunteers, including the President’s role.
We do need your help and there are so many ways you can help:
- Foster a dog or cat
- Use your skills to help us – craft/knitting and so on
- Transport locally or rurally
- Tell your friends about us
- Look out for items on our wish list
- Support our fundraising event
- Help us at Pet Expos and Stalls
- Perhaps you know of a business or person who can donate an item to place in a raffle or silent auction at one of our fundraisers
- Buy our merchandise – see our online store
- Shop online! It is that simple, sign up with Shopnate, then every time, you shop online at the selected stores, a donation is made to VicDRG at no cost to you: shopnate.com.au/charity/victorian-dog-rescue
- Spread the word. Download our leaflet and place it at your vets or pet store, on your community board.
You can also help us by making a donation. As our administration costs are minimal, your donation always goes to where it is needed most – to the animals. You can ask us to direct your donation towards sponsoring a dog or cat of your choice, to vet fees, towards special surgery that can change a dog’s life or to general funds that cover our additional animal-related costs.
If you can donate any of the items listed below please let us know. Thank you so much.
We are always in need of:
- Cat food – any brand or sardines are useful. (Due to health risks we are sorry, but we can only accept food in unopened packaging and within best before dates.)
- As new collars, leads and beds.
- Dog crates.
- Cat carriers.
- Kongs and other toys to prevent boredom – please only in new or as new condition.
- Flea and worm treatments.
- Anything in new or as new condition that would help to keep a dog or cat healthy and happy.
- New items to put in show bags or to raffle at fundraisings events, perhaps unwanted gifts.
