sad dog Rose's Rescue Volunteer Opportunities 

Want to volunteer with us?  Our dogs and the few cats that we have are all in foster homes, so we really don't need someone to walk them, play with them, or do any kind of cleaning duties, but we still need your help!  Here are a few ways in which you can give of your time to help our rescued pets:

Doggie Drivers Needed:   
Rose’s Rescue is always looking for help with transporting dogs from place to place.  Vet appointments, adoption events, to and from foster homes, and sometimes even picking up dogs that are waiting for us at the pound.  It's especially helpful for someone who is available during the day who can be called upon when our usual transportation is not available.

Application Processors:  All potential adopters go through a screening process and must meet specific criteria in order to become new parents to one of our rescued pets.  Not only do we check past veterinary histories to make sure current/previous pets are adequately cared for, we also make a concerted effort to insure the pet they are interested in is a very good match for their family and their lifestyle.  Not everyone is cut out for this task as it is a big responsibility – our dogs and cats depend on us to choose good families for them as their future welfare is at stake.  It’s also not always easy to turn down someone when they don’t meet approval.  But if you are a person who has good people skills (maybe with some human resource experience?) and feel you are up to the task, we can always use help with processing applications.

Kitty helpers for our felines at Petco in Brimfield:  We need local volunteers to help with the cleaning and feeding of our kitties who are awating adoption there.  Of course, you will also have ample opportunity to shower them with love and attention while you are there.  

Grant researching and applying:  Do you have any experience in writing for grant money?  Sometimes it just takes someone to do the research to find appropriate funds and then filling out the paperwork.  Our volunteers are so dedicated to fostering and events that none of them have time to take on something like this.  We could gladly use the help!  You can find other ways to raise much-needed funds for our cause by clicking here.
