Perhaps the nicest thing a DogTrekker can do for pups in need is to help place them in loving homes. Even if you can’t take on another pet yourself, there are as many ways to help as there are displaced dogs pouring through shelter and rescue-organization doors. And many of the ways in which you can make a difference are as much fun for you as they are helpful to the dogs whose lives they help change for the better.
Dozens of benefit events scheduled in California over the holiday season offer joyful ways to contribute to canine causes. They range from silent auctions and holiday parties held in conjunction with “Home for the Holidays” adoption drives to photo sessions with Santa, pet-food drives, gala dinners, winery events, calendar sales and craft fairs. (You’ll find a long list of dog-related holiday happenings on the events pages at DogTrekker.com.)
