The Pooch Pals Foundation is committed to raising awareness and promoting animal adoptions.
We require all of our employees to volunteer in animal rescue and give back to the community using the skills they gain through working with Pooch Pals. Our current partner, Mighty Mutts, puts our employees through orientation in exchange for having strong, regular volunteers, and gives our employees experience with all sorts of different dogs in different situations!
One of our walkers is currently working with Pedro, through Mighty Mutts. You can read more about Pedro here and here. Pedro’s life has not been easy, and he could use YOUR help. Because Pedro is scared of other dogs and kept segregated in a cat shelter, he needs experienced walkers to help him be safe. Mighty Mutts needs funding to pay for Pedro’s care, including dog walkers, food, treats, toys, and medication. Want to help? Click here to visit his fundraising page!!! Every dollar helps!
