Together We Can: Walk for Paws at Oregon Dog Rescue

At the TMG Cares, giving back to the community and supporting animal welfare are part of our core values. On March 31st, our team had the pleasure of volunteering at the Oregon Dog Rescue, an no-kill animal shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehoming dogs in need. As animal lovers, we were excited to spend the day taking large breed dogs on walks to socialize them and provide them with much-needed exercise and human interaction.

The Oregon Dog Rescue, located in Tualatin, Oregon, is a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from overcrowded shelters and dire situations. They provide veterinary care, rehabilitation, and temporary shelter to these dogs until they find their fur-ever homes. As part of our commitment to supporting local organizations that make a positive impact on our community, TMG Cares was eager to contribute to their mission by volunteering our time and effort.

Our team of enthusiastic volunteers arrived at the Oregon Dog Rescue on a beautiful spring day, ready to make a difference. We were greeted by the friendly staff who briefed us on the dogs that needed socialization and exercise. Many of the dogs were large breeds with high energy levels, and regular walks were crucial to their well-being and mental health. We were thrilled to be able to help in this regard.

Armed with leashes and smiles, we set off on walks with our furry companions. We were amazed by the resilience and loving nature of the dogs despite their challenging pasts. We spent time bonding with them, providing them with affection, and enjoying the beautiful scenery around the rescue facility. It was heartwarming to see the dogs wagging their tails, basking in the attention and care they received from our team.

Apart from the physical exercise, the walks also provided an opportunity for the dogs to socialize with humans and other dogs, which is essential for their emotional well-being. Many of the dogs had limited socialization experiences, and our team's presence helped them build trust and confidence in interacting with people. It was fulfilling to see the positive impact we could make on these dogs' lives in just a few hours of volunteering.

Our team also had the chance to learn more about the Oregon Dog Rescue and their ongoing efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and find forever homes for dogs in need. We were impressed by their dedication to animal welfare and their tireless commitment to saving lives. It was a humbling experience to be part of their mission and contribute to their cause.

As the day came to a close, we left the Oregon Dog Rescue with hearts full of joy and gratitude. Volunteering at the rescue was not only a rewarding experience, but it also reminded us of the importance of giving back to our community and being advocates for animal welfare. We were grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of these dogs and to support the incredible work of the Oregon Dog Rescue.

At TMG Cares, we believe in the power of volunteering and giving back to the community. We are proud to support local organizations like the Oregon Dog Rescue and will continue to seek out opportunities to make a difference in the lives of those in need. We encourage everyone to find ways to contribute to their communities and support causes they are passionate about. Together, we can make a positive impact and create a better world for all beings, furry or otherwise.
