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:
Handlers for Meet and Greets, Adopt-a-thons and other public events: Rose’s Rescue makes regular appearances at local pet supply retailers to show off our dogs in the hopes of finding them their forever homes. We also attend larger adoption fairs and other community events throughout the year. Volunteers are needed to take charge of a dog (hold the leash) and/or pass out cards, flyers, and literature about our group. The more help we have, the more dogs we can bring along and the better the chances they have at being adopted.
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.
