Volunteer

Underdog Rescue could not survive without the support and commitment of our wonderful volunteers. In fact, all of our staff members are volunteers. If you are visiting this page, you understand the value of volunteering, both for the organization and for yourself.

Thank you for considering Underdog Rescue to meet this goal. Please look at the opportunities we have listed, but also consider the expertise you already have (accounting, fundraising, organizational development and planning, construction, web-design, etc.) and whether that expertise could help us meet our mission.

Foster Homes

If you have room in your home and in your heart for a temporary pet, we have the need for safe, loving, and committed homes. The commitment to become a foster home will consist of making room in your family for a new member, making time to take foster pets to vet appointments or adoption days, and making a safe and supportive environment for animals that may have had traumatic pasts.

Ask any one of our current foster homes this is a great way to help pets find their forever home. What better way to make a difference in many lives than to make adoptions possible. Every week our organization has to make difficult decisions about which dogs and cats we can save from euthanasia. Unfortunately, we are not able to save every adoptable animal held in animal control facilities from euthanasia because of our limited number of foster homes. If you want to become a part of the solution, consider becoming a foster home.

Underdog Rescue will provide food and crates to foster homes for the animal to use during their stay.

Other Opportunities

We are always welcoming to volunteers with a variety of skills to offer! Here is a short list of possible volunteer jobs:

Transportation: Some of our pets are temporarily housed at boarding facilities, they need transportation to/from our adoption events

Emergency/Vacation Foster Homes: Fostering is a big commitment. If you are unable to take on a pet full time but would like to help out from time to time, we could always use volunteers that we can call on for last minute situations or when our full time fosters need someone to care for their pets while they are away for short periods of time.

Adoption Event Coordinators: Each week, Underdog hosts adoption events at local area pet supply stores. We are always in need of volunteers to arrive at the event early, set up, and coordinate which pets are attending the events. These volunteers help potential adopters find and meet the pets they are there to see. Coordinators would also help tear down and clean up at the end of the event.

These are just a few areas that we need volunteer assistance. If you are interested in helping us another way, we would be happy to work with you!
