There are various ways you can volunteer and support Moorlands Dog Rescue, and if you would like to get involved or have any questions, please use the contact form below.
A really important part of our adoption process, is home checking prospective adopters. This consists of visiting the adopters home, filling in a form and then emailing the results back to the rescue team. We have a Facebook group, where Home Check requests are posted, so that people can volunteer to help. You can join this Facebook group here:
There is no minimum commitment to being a Home Checker for MDR, and you can volunteer your time whenever it is appropriate.
Events & Fundraising
We have various events through the year from gin nights and bake sales to meals out and dog shows. All of these events need manning with volunteers and if we don't have enough people, these events can't go ahead. When an event is coming up, we ask who is able to help out and anyone who can commit to that date will have their name put down. Volunteering at these events is great fun, very sociable and always a good laugh. It can mean anything from waiting tables or washing up at coffee morning, to taking money at bake sales or manning a stall at the dog show. Sometimes it is just a case of being a presence at an event, holding a charity collection tin or in directing members of the public to somebody who can answer questions about rescue dogs. Please have a look at the events page to see what is coming up. If you would like to volunteer, you can join this group: or if you don't have much time to volunteer, just being at the events is good support for the rescue!
You can now support us by fundraising via Just Giving! Whether you are celebrating a special event such as a wedding or birthday and would like your guests to donate to us, or you are planning a challenge such as a sky dive, a run or shaving your head, Just Giving will manage the entire process for you. https://www.justgiving.com/moorlandsdogrescue.
A monthly donation is an amazing way to help the rescue keep running. We cannot thank your monthly donators enough for their continued support. You can also visit the online shop, to purchase a neuter, vaccine or flea treatment. Or if somebody special has a birthday coming up, why not buy them an MDR gift certificate. If you cannot help financially, we are always looking for item donations of various kinds for our online auction which takes place twice a year. We auction off more expensive items like bottle hampers and signed football t-shirts, as well as smaller items too. This brings in a lot of money for the rescue and really helps us to keep running. If you have an item you would like to donate, please fill in the form below.
