Fostering, in your home, is a undertaking of
tremendous value and equal reward.
Contact us for detailed information on
foster home opportunities.
A loving home to keep a dog(s), puppies,
cat(s) or kittens until their forever home
can be found or until they can be
transported to another rescue. (All of our pets are
listed on Petfinder.com). We supply food,
medical, if needed and help in any way we
can while you foster the animal.
Coordinator. We never want
our foster families feeling alone.
We want someone to keep in contact with them
(whether they have an animal or not).
Being a foster is vital to our organization,
until (and even after) we have our
sanctuary built. We need to have good
ones and we need to keep them happy!

We need someone that feels comfortable
around dogs that can handle them and get an
idea of their temperament. We then
take their pictures and post them on the
website as available for adoption. In
the case of an owner surrender, if someone
calls in and wants their animal assessed, we
talk to them and get a feel for their
animals temperament, if they are aggressive
we let the people know they need to address
this problem first, before we would be able
to help them, if we can help them at all.
Taking. This would be
taking pictures at the assessments, and also
many times we need someone to go to homes to
take puppy / kitten/ cats or dog pictures.
Shots. We do this
when the animals are brought in to be
assessed. Sometimes we need to go to
the homes to give puppies their shots.
help. We need help
with paperwork. When people bring
their animals in that are being assessed, we
need to get all the background information
on them so that we can have an accurate bio
to go with their picture online. Once
we have an owner surrender, we need someone
to make sure the family is given the proper
forms when they turn their animal over to
Wags to Riches. Also adoptions will be
done the same day, so we would like to have
someone there to process the paperwork.
We are making connections with rescues on
the other side of the mountains. We
need someone that would be willing to
transport animals to those rescues. We
would pay for gas.
Coordinator. We need
someone to be in contact with the
volunteers. To be in charge of their
schedule, for example, for assessments.
Volunteers are also vitally important to our
organization. We would need you to be
in contact with the volunteers to make sure
they are happy. As you can see we need
volunteer help in many areas!
Messages. We will have a
message line that people call in to.
The calls need to be checked at least once a
day, and calls returned. We have
guidelines that we follow to answer their
Establish person to person contact (at least
the initial contact) with local grocery
stores to ask for pet food donations.
A lot of times they have bags of food that
have broken open that can't be sold and just
need a place to donate.
of Food. When we get calls
from grocery stores we need someone to pick
up the food. From any other source, we
need someone who can pick food up at any
Team. We would like to work
on educating the public. Whether it be
going into schools, putting together facts
and information, meeting with local groups
Relations. We would like
someone to be a liaison between the media
(television, radio etc.) and our
organization. We want this person to
contact the media when we have events.
We want this person to keep their eyes and
ears open for places that we may get the
word out about our organization.
Raising Coordinator. Fund
raising is essential to our organization.
We need funds to build a sanctuary, but
prior to that we need the funds for the day
to day occurrences. For example: All
of our animals receive shots and are spayed
or neutered (if they are old enough) prior
to going to their forever homes. We
will need to buy the vaccines and pay the
vets. The coordinator and their team
would need to come up with fund raising
events and ideas.
Raising Team. Your job
would be to help the coordinator come up
with ideas for fund raising events and to
help out at those events.
Editor. The newsletter is published 6 times per year. Must have experience in newsletter and writing.
