There are many ways you can help homeless bullies and other pets!

  • Always adopt from a shelter or rescue and encourage your friends and family to do so, as well
  • If you can’t adopt, consider fostering a dog temporarily until they find a home. Most rescues will pay the food and medical costs while a foster pet is in your care.
  • Spay and neuter your pets
  • Volunteer at your local rescue or shelter. Volunteering can include everything from cleaning kennels and walking dogs to helping out at fundraising/adoption events to grant writing, public relations or website development.
  • Donate to your local rescue or shelter – which are always in need of funds and items such as dog food, treats, toys, and blankets
  • If you like to drive, offer to transport for your local rescue, which often pull dogs from shelters in other counties or even across the state or the country.
