About Volunteering

ABOUT VOLUNTEERING

Volunteers are the driving effort behind Rescue One’s mission to rescue, care for, reunite and adopt thousands of animals every year. We could not do what we do without our amazing volunteers!

WAYS YOU CAN HELP

BECOME A FOSTER PARENT

Fostering a homeless pet can be a rewarding experience. By becoming a foster, you will provide a temporary home for the animal until it can be placed into a forever home.  Our goal is to match you with the pet that is going to be the best fit for your home environment. We are not a breed specific rescue, so if there is a specific breed you are interested in fostering, please let us know.

BECOME AN EVENT VOLUNTEER

Rescue One attends various public outings and events throughout the year. We are looking for volunteers to help show our animals at adoption events, talk to potential adopters and answer any questions from the general public about our rescue.

BECOME A FUNDRAISING VOLUNTEER

Fundraising is a crucial means by which Rescue One can raise additional funds which will be used for medical issues that may arise with our animals. We are looking for volunteers that would be interested in helping prepare for events and fundraisers.

BECOME A TRANSPORT VOLUNTEER

At times, Rescue One will need additional transportation for our animals.  Whether it’s transporting from a shelter, to/from a vet, to/from an adoption event, transportation volunteers help alleviate some of the transport off of the fosters.
