Our Organization Always Needs Help With:

Fostering Animals- Keep a shelter pet in your home, temporarily, until they find their forever home, go to rescue, or space becomes available at the shelter.

Drivers- Drive animals to vet appointments or to our affiliated in-state and out-of-state rescue organizations.

Socializing Animals- Walk dogs, play with puppies, kittens & cats, and bathe animals to help prepare them for their new forever home.

Picture taking- Snap great pictures of our dogs & puppies so potential adopters and rescues will see them and save them.

Grant Writing- Help us search for and apply for grants that will aid us in our life saving mission for the animals of Fayette County.

Fundraising- Help, lead, organize or assist in campaigns that will help us save more lives.
