How to Help

We Need Your Help!

Our organization is always in need of pet fosters, for dogs and/or cats. If you are interested in opening your heart and home to a homeless pet, we would love to talk to you about joining our operation. If you are unable to foster, we have many other ways that you can participate in our group, as well. Please send an email to

Additionally, the Dog P.E.N. welcomes fundraising assistance from individuals, club and other organizations. If you are interested in hosting a fundraising event to provide our rescue group with much needed financial support.
