Regular Volunteer Opportunity
Canine Foster Volunteers provide a safe, loving and temporary home for puppies and senior dogs. You must have the ability to separate the foster animals from any pets in your home by keeping them in a separate room, if necessary. We will provide training and all the supplies you need.
Canine Foster Volunteers are responsible for helping the puppies (a minimum of 2 at a time), seniors and / or adult dogs in their care thrive until they are ready to be adopted. This will include feeding the animals at least twice a day, possibly more, potty training (for puppies), and exercising and socializing the animals. It may also include bottle feeding and administering oral medications.
