Thank you for your help!
Please read below how you can participate in our dog rescue. If interested, please fill out and submit the Volunteer Contact Form. We will then email or call you to discuss your participation. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
- Be a Foster Home –
this is where you welcome one or more dogs into your home to care for them, socialize them to neighbor dogs or at the dog park, and start them off with some basic obedience to allow them to show their best when they meet a prospective adopter. You may foster as many times in the year as fits your schedule or interest. If the dog you receive to foster does not blend well into your home or your existing dog pack, we will promptly relocate that particular dog and try to find you a substitute. Follow this link for additional information on becoming a foster home.
- Provide Dog Transport –
as we do not have a central facility (we are not a shelter, but are comprised of individuals sharing our homes with our rescue dogs) we often need assistance to transport dogs. This may for an initial retrieval from an animal shelter, between foster homes, or on occasion to a veterinary clinic or hospital (UC Davis, for example). This takes time and with many of the fosters working in regular employment, sometimes the timing can be difficult or simply not feasible. Having someone whom we can call and obtain assistance with a dog transport is a great help to us.
- Help at Special Events –
throughout the year we hold special events such as micro- chipping clinics or have booths at dog events. We can always use assistance in setting up and staffing shifts at these often all- day events.
- Fundraising –
If you have a flair for fundraising, we can really use your help.
