Shelters and rescues often struggle with limited resources. Many rely on donations and fundraisers and don’t raise enough money to accommodate the needs of their animals.
One way to lessen the burden is to build connections with other organizations and become a resource for one another. And that’s exactly the idea behind the Doobert Trading Post!
We want to provide you with an easier way to collaborate with other shelters and rescues and offer each other a helping hand.
If your organization is in need of supplies or wants to share anything you have in excess, we highly encourage you to use the Doobert Trading Post and tell your partner organizations to do the same.
We show you how it works down below!
