Make a pawsitive impact in the community!

Making a big difference doesn't always mean adopting a dog. Kids can help save dogs by volunteering to fundraise, foster and flyer.

Fundraise Fur a Cause:

Whether it's a birthday, a bar/bat mitzvah, a holiday, or a special celebration–thoughtfully ask your friends and family members to make a monetary donation to Brown Dog Coalition.

Fundraising can also be done by having a bake sale or a homeroom fundraiser. Students at a local middle school placed collection envelopes in every classroom to gather donations for Brown Dog and the homeroom that raised the most money won a pizza party provided by the school!

Junior Foster:

With the permission of your parents, you can be a junior foster parent to a dog in need! Brown Dog rescues dogs from an overcrowded southern shelter. Fostering a dog saves two lives—the life of your foster dog and also the life of the dog in the shelter who gets to take their place. Fostering means taking care of a dog until they are adopted. The experience of fostering a dog teaches empathy and responsibility to family members regardless of age. Learn more about our foster program and have a parent fill out a foster application here.


Promote adoptable dogs in your community by creating and posting flyers at your school, local coffee shops and other posting boards (with permission). You can also promote adoptable dogs and dogs in need of special medical care by sharing our posts on Facebook and Instagram
