Doggie Business
For people unable to properly care for a dog all of the time, you could share one of your well-trained and affectionate dogs with them. Your dogs could share time between you and several families.

This would include a dog bed, food bowls, food, brushes, a leash and collar, and a few small toys or balls. Having these items will help the dog with the constant home transitions since it will provide it with familiar smells and insure that its environment is comfortable.

They would probably have to make detailed plans with a friend who has a truck or van. Most people do not have a friend like that; or do not want to bother their friend.

Yard Sale Organizing

At the conclusion of a thorough spring-cleaning, most people have a huge pile of clothes, toys, and various pieces of furniture and appliances that they have decided are no longer a functioning part of their household. To get rid of these items, people will either load up the bed of their pickup truck or drop off the items at a local charity, or if the householder wants to make a little cash, they are used to holding a yard sale. For some people though, the idea of having a garage or yard sale seems good in theory but a little too overwhelming a prospect in reality.
