Dog’s Trust

We used to go to the local dog rescue centre as volunteer dog walkers. We have always wanted a dog, but would not have the time to commit to one properly. So walking the dogs on a Saturday morning proved a good second best. It also allowed discussions around why the dogs were there…

at Dogs Trust today. Mini read out one of the dogs profiles.

“Kane is very confused. He was happy living with his owner for many years, he felt loved. Then his owner found someone else to love and had no time for him, and sent him away.”

Other Mini – “How will he trust anyone again?”

Mini – “Everyone can trust and love again…”

  1. Wow! What an awesome thing to do! I’m a dog lover…as in-I have always considered a couple of them part of my family & I have chased a few down the interstate trying to rescue them. I used to carry dog food in my trunk when I traveled for work-just in case I spotted one. What you’re doing is important & I commend you!

  2. This reminds me of my best friend’s roommate. He works 80 hours a week and when he doesn’t work he is out and about with his friends. That’s all well and good. To each his own. But a year ago he adopted a puppy. Then two weeks later he adopted another one “so she wouldn’t be lonely”. The problem is he adopted them and that’s about it. He used to take them for daily walks but when my friend moved in, he put it all on her because when he wasn’t home she would naturally spend time with the dogs. Thing is neither of them have a lot of experience with animals but at least my friend was willing to admit it and suggest taking them to a training center. Her roommate, though, doesn’t think there is anything wrong with the dogs running all over the house, jumping on the counters, fighting with each other and not getting any human attention. Yet he will yell at them every time they make a mess in the house or go to the bathroom on his floor because, oh yeah, they weren’t properly house trained either. Worse is he has no real connection with them. Those poor dogs suffer and would have gone completely feral if it hadn’t been for my friend. He is under the impression that dogs can take care of themselves and don’t need guidance but dogs are a lot like children. They need love and compassion as much as they need food, water, and shelter. I’m really glad to know someone out there who knows this well enough not to put a dog through that but volunteering once a week and taking your kids with you is so beneficial for you, your kids and the dogs you walk. That is really wonderful!
