What do we need help with?

Our top priority is to find foster homes for the dogs we rescue. We prefer to keep them in homes where we can get them ready for adoption, rather than to keep them kenneled. We provide a full coverage of medical bills and provide supplies including, but not limited to food, treats, crate, toys, and bedding. All you have to do is provide a loving home, make any vet appointments needed, and meet with potential adopters to ensure they're a great fit.

In addition to volunteering, we also need help when we bring large groups of dogs to our facility. Opportunities include walking, bathing, grooming, behavior assessments, veterinary technician, lab work, cleaning, laundry, and even paperwork.

If you can drive with us across the country to rescue dogs from other shelters, we will cover the vehicle rental and gas- you just have to get behind the wheel and help care for our pups on the way home.

If you have any other ideas, we would love to hear them!

As volunteer opportunities arise, we will reach out via email.

What qualities are we looking for in volunteers, you ask?

 

Commitment

We ask that as a volunteer, you commit to a minimum of 3 months aboard our team. As we are foster home based, it’s very hard when animals are returned to us, but we only expect that you try your best. Our volunteers need to understand that animals are a lot of work and nobody is perfect. Rescued animals often come with issues that we need to help them through and we will do our absolute best to help you work through those issues.

Honesty

We are completely honest with our volunteers and we expect the same. We would not steal from you, just as we would hope you wouldn’t as well. All materials must remain with the rescue.

Reliability

In rescue, we have to be able to rely on our volunteers to be there to help when they agree to be. Not feeling up to it the day of? Work through it. These animals need us more than we need to take a nap or take it easy for a day! We push through as best as we can and get the job done. We can relax after the day is over.

Patience

Working in animal rescue requires a great deal of patience. Results are usually not instant and you will most likely be tested at times.

Respect

When you are put in difficult situations, you must be able to keep calm, think rationally, and always be completely respectful.
