Fosters are one of our greatest needs at Canine Companions Rescue Center. We have limited space at our Kennel that we utilize, and having fosters available allows us to accept more animals from animal control facilities into our program. Our fosters and volunteers also play a key role
in transporting animals to appointments and adoption events, evaluating them learning their temperaments and habits, and helping them adjust
to being a member of your family before moving on to their own home.
We are always in need of volunteers willing to attend adoption events to hold dogs that have not yet been placed in a foster home, and to also help when a foster parent is not able to attend with their animals. Our weekly events generally last between 3-4 hours and will consist of holding, interacting, and walking your assigned dog, speaking with the public, and helping to answer questions that potential adopters may have. To view our schedule of adoption events, see the calendar at the bottom of our home page!
Another way to volunteer your time with our organization is to assist us with fundraising. Fundraising is an extremely important part of what we do because without funds and donations, we would not be able to provide all the services required for our animals. Whether it be planning a large charity event or applying for a grant, any help in this area is always appreciated! Some ideas for fundraisers include bake sales, garage sales, can drives, having your child do a food or supply drive, hosting a casual day at your work, or talking to your employer about sponsoring one of our fundraisers or starting a matching gift program. If you own a business you can help in additional ways. If you would like more information about any of these idea, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our goal to promote the adoption of as many homeless animals as possible into loving forever homes. Our community outreach includes assisting in educating our neighbors about animal adoption and how it effects their community in a positive way, proper veterinary care and maintenance for current pets, and the importance of spay and neuter.
