Calling all dog lovers!

We have the perfect Volunteer opportunities for you and your family.

We currently have 36 dogs on the farm and they are waiting for you to come and play with them, take them for a walk and give them a cuddle or two.  And while you are giving them love and attention, we are looking for a loving, forever home where they can spend the rest of their lives.

Can you spare a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday?  And it does not have to be every Saturday or Sunday.  Just when you are free and ready to receive some love from a Dassenberg Rescue dog.

Do you have love to give?

With enough love, even the most broken souls can become whole again. Professional trainers, healers and veterinarians make sure that each dog receives only the best care.  But it is love, attention, a cuddle and play-time that is needed most.

And YOU are the perfect person for the job.

It’s difficult to describe the build-up of excitement in our kennels on Saturday mornings! Oh yes, they know, Saturday mornings is volunteer time! Where they get to play and snuggle and be pampered to their hearts content.

Did you know that your visit and love:

·       Relieves kennel stress.

·       Builds trust in humans.

·       Develops the social skills necessary for a successful adoption.

·       Takes pressure off our team and supports them in their work so that they can start the next week feeling stronger and more able to serve our dogs.

Of course, it can be a little sad when it’s time to say good bye but at least you leave knowing a few of our doggies are feeling happy and loved.  Your visit will fill their eyes with a special spark that will help them find a forever, loving home.

How you an help!

Volunteer Saturdays:  We are open every Saturday morning between 8:30 and 11:00am for dog walking, play time in the park, grooming and care!

WhatsApp Wayne if you want to play, groom or take a Dassenberg Rescue Dog for a walk on the farm 071 165 4687.

And if the drive to Dassenberg is not for you, you can always help us at one of our adoption days

Adoption Days:  We desperately need help at Adoption Days (10:00am to 14:00pm)
1st Saturday of each month:  Paws-a-while in Sea Point
1st Sunday of each month: Camphill Market in West Coast
3rd Saturday of each month: Pet World N1 City

Call Suzi if you have questions about volunteer opportunities at an  adoption day  078 367 8264.

You do not have to volunteer every month, and you will never be alone.  A Dassenberg member will always be there, we just need an extra pair of hands to help with answer questions, take the dogs for a short walk and tell everyone about the work that we do.

Can’t spare the time right now?  If volunteering doesn’t fit in with your busy schedule you can still be a Dassenberg Rescue Centre hero by making us your MySchool beneficiary.  It all helps and is equally appreciated!
