Responsible Dog Owners of Canada (RDOC) is a registered, non-profit, national organization comprised of volunteers who believe that responsibility, respect and recognition are fundamental components of dog ownership. They are currently fundraising through the purchase of gift cards to assist the organization to continue their important work.
RDOC programs cover a wide variety of activities from preschool (Fido, Friend or Foe activity book) to seniors (survey of retirement homes pet policies). They encourage responsible dog ownership in a variety of ways. They administer the Canadian Canine Good Citizen (CCGC) testing program and organize clean ups in dog parks.
The goal of their fundraising campaign is to raise $2,000.00 so that RDOC can continue to administer their programs. Here are some ways you can help RDOC reach their goal —
1. Participate in the Fundscrip fundraiser. It will cost you nothing more than the price of a gift card – all you need to do is purchase a gift card and use it for a gift or for yourself. Each purchase automatically includes a donation to the campaign. The supporter is not out of pocket, and you can shop wherever you would normally shop. To join our fundraiser go to: https://group.fundscrip.com/
• The ‘Responsible Dog Owners of Canada’ page will appear
• follow the instructions to place an order.
3. Make a donation (see their website for details) http://www.responsibledogowners.ca/.
The RDOC team thanks everyone who participates in their fundraiser.
Due to the rain on September 28th, the Stittsville Dog Park clean-up will now take place on Saturday, October 12th from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. When you arrive, RDOC will be handing out bags and gloves to dog owners — you are the ones who do all the work cleaning up the area. The incentive is a much cleaner park and the pups get dog treats. Stittsville Dog Park is located in the Shea Woods at the corner of Shea Road and Abbott Street. For the park clean up, the group will meet at the northeast corner of the Holy Spirit Parish parking lot.
