This Is The Dog! is a 501c3 non-profit animal adoption/rescue in Homestead. Our main mission is to help solve the pet overpopulation problem. We will spay/neuter every animal before adoption and encourage the community to spay/neuter their pets. We firmly believe that the education of humane care of animals and spay/neuter programs are the answer and the hope in stopping pet overpopulation and animal abuse. Our goal is to teach the community to act responsibly in the care of their own pets while also looking out for those animals which are homeless. This is the Dog! does not have a shelter and we depend on community efforts to help us accomplish our mission. We are a small group of volunteers that are making a difference.
This is the Dog! operates entirely on charitable donations and adoption donations. We maintain partnerships with local veterinarians to help manage some of the costs. We have community fundraisers to help collect donations from the public. We also accept monetary donations and pet food and supply donations.
We always need volunteers during our adoption shows and special events to groom, feed, walk the dogs, set up cages, and collect donations. Also, volunteers play with the cats and talk to people that come in and ask about our group and what we do. Persons age 12 and older (with parental supervision) are eligible to volunteer and can also receive community service hours. All volunteers must complete the Volunteer form and bring it with them the day they start volunteering. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
