After my email last week asking for how I could pet a puppy, a very kind couple of friends Edward and Kathryn reached out with this fantastic piece of advice.

“Kathryn and I volunteered at Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn on Saturday. You can just turn up there and walk a dog, with no minimum or ongoing commitment if you are missing your canine friends in Aus!”

From their website:

Drop in any day from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm to walk a dog.  We’ll ask you to complete our easy Volunteer Dog Walker Application before you head out.

  • Must be 18 years of age or older (no exceptions)
  • ALL Volunteers under 21 require a parent or guardian’s signature.
  • Complete Dog Walker Volunteer application

So if you want to pet a puppy and do something good at the same time, what are you waiting for!?

America Josh

I had a fantastic life in Adelaide and in Australia but thought in late 2015 that it was time to do something new. I handed over control of my company, sold my house, car, and even gave away my cat (“Aslan”) to start on my journey to New York.
