Can you spare a few hours a month to help us
If you thought the only way you could help was by fostering, think again! Not every volunteer with Rogers’ Rescues fosters dogs. It truly “takes a village” to process applications, conduct home visits, help with events and fundraising, lend moral support, and more. Here are a few of the volunteer roles we could use your help with. To get started, fill out a volunteer application.
The first step after receiving an application is conducting a phone interview with the applicant. Volunteers are needed to schedule and conduct these interviews which normally take a little over 30 minutes. We work around your schedule!
All potential adopters require a home visit. Volunteers are needed to schedule and conduct these visits with people in their areas. These visits take about 20 to 30 minutes plus travel time and are often conducted on weekends.
Transport volunteers drive an hour or two away to meet up with other transport volunteers. If you only have time on the weekends to volunteer, this could be the opportunity for you. You will play an integral part in getting these dogs out of a shelter and into a rescue where they can start their new lives.
Meet & Greet adoption events sometimes have more foster dogs than people. Can you spare a few hours of your time every few months to chat with potential adopters about our process and our dogs?
Dogs who have spent time in a shelter often need help relearning basic obedience. And sometimes, once a dog is in our program, problems become evident that may have landed the dog in the shelter in the first place. If you can provide help – even if just once a year – we will sing your praises to the rooftops.
There are few things more important to the long-term success of a volunteer-run organization than fundraising. We have several fundraisers every year that are successful but we are always looking for fresh ideas and people interested in helping us run them.
Vacation Coverage for foster dogs
We welcome volunteers who can offer vacation coverage of just a week or 2 to our foster homes. You'll already know about the dog's personality and training, which makes it a great way to get started.
Foster home volunteers welcome our rescue dogs into their lives. While fostering is a big commitment it is also incredibly rewarding. Foster homes review the Petfinder pages of the shelters we work with and choose the dog they want to foster. The dog is transported to us and lives in the foster home as part of the family. We offer comprehensive online training as well as a huge foster home support network. You are never alone with any problems or questions that arise while fostering.
