HRI needs fosters and more...

Ladies and gents:
HRI received calls on taking in over 12 new dogs this week. Most are incredibly wonderful...challenges within the family, losing a home, or just getting "tired" of a youthful dog. Sounds like these dogs will all make great homes...but first they need foster homes! Please contact HRI if you are interested.

This being said, the funds we raise through the quilts are needed more than ever. Give a dog a home and a bone!

We need you! Several forum members have become fosters and a couple have adopted!

Yeah forum members!

Any one in PA looking for a second dog, housetrained!

If you cannot adopt or foster, here are some fun things to do

Volunteering

What do HRI Volunteers do? There is nothing they donít do! A few ways our volunteers help HRI include:
quilting squares for the HRI Quilt Fundraiser
coordinating the fabrication of the quilt
selling quilt tickets
maintaining the HRI stores
taking pictures of foster dogs and quilt squares for store items and publicity
communicating HRI news to local HCA clubs
posting pictures and write-ups of our foster dogs on Petfinder
designing and maintaining the HRI website
creating databases for tracking dogs and people who support HRI
coordinating dog transports
driving a leg of a transport
fostering
checking on dogs in shelters
helping HRI maintain its financial records
being available to counsel someone about a dog behavior issue
helping HRI with fundraising efforts
writing policies, procedures and educational info for other volunteers
educating the public by setting up booths at local pet expos or shows
coordinating an online auction to raise funds
creating a slideshow or video for youtube or educational venues
serving as a board member and/or officer
providing financial support to HRI
doing home visits for potential foster homes or adopters
doing reference checks for volunteers and prospective adopters
using their personal network of friends to help us find people to pull a dog, or do a home visit
storing things for HRI - like leashes, collars, bellybands, etc
generating donations of items from businesses or individuals for our foster dogs or for auctions and fundraisers
working on the newsletter committee
grooming dogs in foster care
providing moral support and camaraderie to other volunteers as they share their successes and challenges with HRI dogs.

Skills Required to Volunteer: Enthusiasm, a love for Havanese, time and energy! If you review the list of what HRI Volunteers do, youíll see that we have people who sew, have computer skills or accounting skills, knowledge of Havanese, knowledge of dog training, knowledge of medical and behavioral issues, communication skills, work skills related to fundraising and writing grants, the ability to open their hearts to a dog in need of a foster home, time to help with reference checks, some space in their home for items for our HRI foster dogs, and compassion and love for this breed and the other people involved in rescue.
