Helping homeless companion animals also helps people, often in miraculous ways

Mutual Rescue’s programs, events, social media, book, and films explore how “mutual” and “rescue” are so often interrelated when people help homeless companion animals.

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.

Doggy Day Out requires minimal training commitments for participants. This encourages members of the public to engage with their local shelter and advocate for the animals. 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.
