Find the Items You Need Using Doobert’s Trading Post Feature!

 

In most cases, shelters and rescues struggle with making do of limited resources. Many rely on donations and fundraisers alone and often don’t raise enough money to accommodate the needs of the animals.

But, 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 some items or want to share anything that you have in excess, we encourage you to use the Trading Post feature on Doobert and tell your partner organizations to do the same.

 

What Is A Trading Post?

An online trading post is a website or platform where you can exchange goods with other individuals, sometimes with money or with other types of merchandise.

On Doobert, the Trading Post feature allows you to list all the items that you need or are offering for your partner organizations to see.

You’ll also be able to search through your partner organizations’ list to view what items they are looking for or are wanting to share with others.
