TEMPORARY FOSTERS
Care for our animals in transition

We are always in need of short-term fosters to hold tight to our shelter pups while they await their transport date. This allows our county shelters to assist more animals in need, while also teaching our pups valuable lessons--like what to do when bored, or where to get the best water in the world!

This is a much-needed volunteer opportunity, so please reach out if you're able to help.

WE NEED DRIVERS
Help us get animals to safety

If you're interested in driving one of our transports North, or accompanying one of our drivers please give us a call. If we aim to grow this program, we're going to need more drivers to step up and help us with these amazing rescue journeys. If you're not able to do overnight drives, we have plenty of opportunities for short-term transports from shelter to shelter. We work closely with rural shelters in Kentucky and West Virginia and regularly need drivers to meet them at half-way points to bring us injured/vulnerable dogs.

WE NEED HELPERS
Transport Prep and Breakdown

We're in need of an individual or 2 person team to help us prep Big Honey for transport as well as do breakdown/cleaning when she returns. It's easy to do and takes about 2-3 hours. If we're aiming to help more dogs and increase our transports, we would love to have help on this front. Big Honey currently resides in Fairview, NC.
