There are many ways you can help the animals by volunteering
Be A Travel Companion
Dogs and Cats of the Dominican Republic has many, many animals who are looking to get to Canada and the United States to get to their forever homes. Our main way to get them there is to have a travel companion that is traveling from Puerto Plata or Santiago take them as either a carry-on or in the cargo area. DCDR does all the leg work for these travel companions including insuring they have all their vaccinations, making sure all paperwork is completed in compliance with D.R., U.S., and Canadian Customs regulations, and paying all costs related to the dog or cat. DCDR will also have a representative meet you at the airport in the D.R. to walk you through the entire process as well as a representative to meet you at your destination. Traveling to the D.R. You can really help us out and help a needy animal out by being a travel companion. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Foster A Dog Or Cat
A foster home not only offers an oasis to a traumatized animal, but even helps it to learn behaviors that may increase its chances to be placed in a forever home. Learning to trust a gentle hand, play with toys and other animals, walk on a leach, and respect the home are all acquired skills. If you are able to open your heart and home to foster a dog or cat, please let us know. In the Dominican Republic, DCDR will cover all the expenses in regards to the foster including food and vet bills. If fostering in Canada or the United States, assistance can be provided on a case by case basis.
