Corporate Volunteering

Corporate groups are particularly welcome to spend their community volunteer days at our Doggiewood shelter at Ingleside where more than 100 dogs reside.

We can currently only handle small groups of 6 or less people, Tuesday to Thursday. However, as DoggieRescue is so popular, bookings are essential and need to be made WELL IN ADVANCE.

We wash about 20 loads of washing each day. You can either pick up laundry from our shelter at Ingleside and take it home and bring it back folded when convenient or visit the shelter between 10am – 3pm Tue – Sun to help with hanging up laundry and folding once dry.
