We currently have the following volunteer opportunities available:

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
For our friends, the animals.  Especially
for animals who are suffering;
for any that are hunted or lost or
deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all they
mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them,
we ask a heart of compassion and
gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true
friends to animals, and so to share the
blessings of the merciful.
~Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Adoption Day Volunteer
Assist with Adoption Days (see schedule on our Calendar of Events). Whole or partial shifts are available. Duties range from assisting in loading kennels and animals in the morning at the shelter in Rossville, setup at the adoption location, assistance with potential adopters throughout the day, walking dogs during the adoption day, loading animals and kennels at the adoption location back into the vehicles and unloading animals and kennels back at the Rossville shelter.

If you have one hour a day once a month that you can assist with an adoption it would make a significant difference. We take up to 30 animals in one day and the more volunteers that we have assisting the easier it is on everyone. Check out our adoption day schedule and pick the location that is most convenient for you. Your assistance would truly be appreciated and will be rewarded by doggy kisses from our rescues!

Foster Parents
We will provide all of the food, medical care, dog houses, and other necessities for your foster animal. You simply provide a suitable environment, lots of love and agree to bring the animal to the shelter when they need veterinary care and to all adoption days.
