Without volunteers, I would not be doing what I do!

Volunteering can mean whatever you are willing to give:
  • raising money
  • helping at events
  • delivering documents
  • picking up supplies
  • making bracelets
  • picking up dogs from transport
  • giving a dog a ride from another state
  • asking for items needed (toys, towels, etc),
  • talking me off the ledge :)
  • responding to emails
  • playing with puppies
  • picking up from the groomer
  • running to the vet
  • spreading the word about the rescue or events
  • making fliers and posters
  • baking for fundraisers
  • whatever else you can come up with!

I welcome all ages and abilities and appreciate anything that enables me to help save a life!


As a one-woman rescue, I rely on "the kindness of strangers", as well as my friends and clients, to help out with the care of my rescue dogs. I don't have a rescue facility so I can only take so many pups at a time. I am grateful for people who can welcome a new dog into their home for an hour, a day or longer. I do my best to match the right dog to the right family so that everyone is comfortable, happy and can enjoy the company of a homeless pup.


SAVE A LIFE: Volunteer to Help

If you wish to help save a life and become a foster, please begin by filling out an application. Click the button above to begin the process of being a foster.

What is a foster? Our fosters play a crucial role in saving the lives of dogs in need. They provide temporary housing and care for a dog while the animal is making its way through the adoption process to its forever home. Care includes housing, feeding, walking, and general care for the dog.


If you would like to give your own dog a friend for a bit or see what having a dog/second dog is like, it would help me save another life which in turn opens up a kennel for another dog. It is a huge gift.

As of 2015, all of our Applications have been moved to Google Forms.
