We are a 100% volunteer-run organization where the donation of time is of great value. We do not have a shelter facility. Instead, we rely on volunteer foster families to care for our dogs while we find permanent homes for them.

If you have a special skill, talent, or available resources, we can certainly use your help. Fostering, fundraising, event planning/coordination, graphic design/marketing/PR are all needed volunteer areas. Below is a brief list of the types of things we are involved in and our needs. View our events page to see if there is an upcoming event of interest to you.
