Barrington, NH: The NH Dog Walking Club, a community outreach effort of It Takes a Village Pet Care, located in Barrington, NH, has partnered with several pet professionals to raise funds for NH pet industry nonprofit organizations.
Every year, the NH Dog Walking Club partners with area pet industry experts to offer an educational component to their popular monthly walks and hikes for dog lovers. This year, along with their expert partners, the organization will also raise funds and awareness for ElderPet, Mary’s Dogs and Live and Let Live Farm. The nonprofits were chosen through a member survey and invited to become a 2020 charitable partner.
ElderPet, located in Durham, NH, is a service organization made up of Pet Partner Therapy Teams and community volunteers. The focus of ElderPet is to facilitate the important human/pet relationships of senior citizens, people with disabilities, hospice families, and clients of health care and other facilities.
Mary’s Dogs Rescue & Adoption located in Northwood, NH, actively supports the efforts of their rescue partners, finds forever homes for dogs through their facility and offers support and medical care of rescued dogs throughout the adoption process.
Live and Let Live Farm located in Chichester, NH, is an animal shelter that rescues abused and unwanted animals, mainly horses, and pregnant dogs and cats, and provides them either a temporary or permanent safe place to interact with people. When applicable, they will try to find appropriate homes for rehabilitated animals. Those animals that are considered un-adoptable will be given lifetime care at their farm.
The NH Dog Walking Club’s charitable partner program would not be possible without the support of its expert partners, including It Takes a Village Pet Care in Barrington, K9 to 5 Dog Services in Dover, Healthy Pets NH in Webster, Red Pointy Dog Training in Strafford, Acupetvet in Somersworth, Take Five Dogcare in Lee, Jody Crotty Animal Communication in Lee, Miss Behavior Training in Northwood, Canine Karma in Northwood, and Sit.Stay.Smile.
