Highland Dogblog is a community based network of people with a shared love of dogs and the Highlands and Islands regions of Scotland. What started as a social media network has evolved over the past four and a half years into an exciting hybrid of social media and social action.
Highland Dogblog’s main activities are:
- The hosting, administration and support of all HDB social media pages, associated groups and web pages, including the generation of creative content and active online community management.
- Arranging, financing and hosting real world community events such as pack walks, play dates, work parties and community litter picks.
- Strategic networking across all platforms for the benefit of members, their dogs and our community as a whole. Also involves ad-hoc project management where an identified need can be addressed by our community.
- Organisation, management and financing of The Bothy (our community drop-in centre, storage facility and processing place for Selkie’s Seconds).
- Construction, management, financing and maintenance of Scentral Park (a securely fenced safe area where numerous activities are hosted)
- The ongoing management of the Selkie’s Seconds project which includes project promotion, collecting items, managing a network of collection points, processing items and sales of second hand pet items for the benefit of Munlochy Animal Aid.
- Putting together small groups of volunteers on an as needs basis under the banner of Paw Pals Assist to help members of our community.
