Volunteers are the lifeblood of any rescue, and we are no exception. We need volunteers in every aspect of our endeavor and welcome you to come aboard. Some areas that you may want to consider are:
  • Fostering ~ as a foster you take the pet into your home. Nothing prepares a dog faster and more thoroughly for a forever home than a foster!
  • Walker ~ as a dog walker you not only exercise a dog but teach it to trust human leadership.
  • Playpal ~ proper socializing of dogs require that they learn how to play with us. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it! :~)
  • Trainer ~ teaching a dog basic commands such as sit, stay, and come help to make it unique among the hundreds of dogs needing adoption and so increase its chances substantially
  • Care ~ cleaning dog runs, washing dogs, feeding everyone ~ one of the most important jobs in establishing trust with our dogs.
  • Photo and videos ~ quality photos are huge. If the little thumbprint on a computer search engine isn't good, then no one will go to that dog's information page and it will just languish in rescue. When photos are combined with video, oh-my-gosh!, suddenly the dog goes from being a picture to a real-life personality filled puppy!!!
  • Fund raising ~ adoption fees do not even begin to scratch the surface of our expenses. Without fund raising we just won't last.
  • Writing skills ~ if you fancy yourself gifted with the ability to turn a phrase, then we would welcome your help in updating our posts about the dogs.
  • Graphic design ~ I know we could do more in this area, but it is not my strong suit.
  • Computer skills ~ if you are someone we can call when the computer does the crazy things that computers do, you would be a blessing!
  • Bookkeeper ~ someone? Anyone? Please?
  • Legal advice ~ just to have someone available should we need it would lift a heavy load from my shoulders.
  • and more.... If you have a talent, we have a need!
