Programs

Mutual Rescue’s programs are designed for animal shelters, rescue groups, and others helping homeless companion animals in their communities.

Doggy Day Out

Mutual Rescue’s Doggy Day Out is a short-term foster program where the public can take dogs from local shelters on day outings. A Doggy Day Out can include a hike, a trip to a beach or lake, or even a sleepover. These field trips help shelter dogs manage kennel stress, burn off energy, and get more exposure to potential adopters. It’s a great excuse to get out and have fun with a canine sidekick.

Host a Film Event

Mutual Rescue offers its films for approved off-line events that benefit local animal-welfare organizations. We encourage animal shelters and rescue groups, community organizations, businesses, charities, foundations, social services, libraries, schools, and animal-loving individuals to design Mutual Rescue film events for community engagement, fundraising, and education.
