Volunteer

Do you love helping dogs as much as we do? Turn your free time into something very rewarding and join our team of volunteers. We welcome volunteers to foster, transport, complete home visits, reference checks and participate in events. Join our journey to end the plight of homeless pets. Volunteer roles vary and so do the time commitments. Please see the volunteer needs below to better understand how you can help.  We would love to tell you more, so please contact us with any questions.

 

Fostering:

Are you interested in providing a dog a temporary home to call their own? We are always in need of fosters and would love for you to join our foster family. Please check out our foster page to learn more about what it means to foster and how to apply.

 

Transportation:

Transportation is a very critical role for any rescue. Here at TEAM we utilize our volunteers to transport our deserving pups from shelters to their foster homes. We also require transport to and from vet appointments.  Without our transport volunteers our dogs wouldn’t be able to get where they need to be. This type of volunteering is perfect for those that enjoy spending time with our dogs.

 

Home Visits:

At TEAM our top priority is the safety and welfare of our dogs. Before placing a dog in their foster or adoptive homes we always ensure they are entering a safe environment. Completion of home visits allows us to see where the dog will be living either temporarily or permanently and is a critical step in the foster and adoption process. Our volunteers visit all homes to guarantee our dogs are being left in a safe and secure environment.

 

Reference Checks:

We have a very rigorous foster and adoption application process in place for the benefit of our dogs. We need volunteers to complete

reference checks for foster and adoption applications. Reference checks can easily be completed from anywhere and are a key step in doing our due diligence to make sure our animals end up in the best possible homes.

 

Events:

Events are a great tool to raise funds and awareness for our dogs. We have a variety of events each year to support TEAM and the costs associated with running our rescue. If you are enthusiastic and love animals, helping with events may be the volunteer position for you. We are always looking for creative ways to raise money for the rescue and events are the platform to do this.
