Volunteers are the heart of this organization! This is evidenced in our logo – two setters circled by hands – helping hands – the helping hands of our volunteers! From the board to our fosters, applications team to our web team, transporters to buddies – we are ALL volunteers.
There are many types of volunteers needed to make this rescue function. Regardless of how much or how little time you have to spare, there is a need that you can fulfill.
Applications Team and Buddies
If you enjoy working with people, consider joining our applications team or becoming a Buddy. The applications team processes the adoption & foster applications. Initial contact phone calls are made to learn more about the applicant. Verification of veterinary care is completed. A home visit is completed to ensure the applicant has a good environment for a setter to live. You may also like to help by completing home visits in your area.
Once an applicant is approved, a Buddy is assigned. The Buddy works with an approved applicant to help them find a setter that is a good match for them. The Buddy knows the needs of the available dogs & the desires of the applicants & helps coordinate contact with the foster. Buddy work is both fun and rewarding as you are part of so many “Happy Endings”.
Help move dogs to/from their foster/adopter. See our Transport page for additional information & application
Do you have a knack for outreach/philanthropy & enjoy connecting with others? Help is needed in all aspects of fundraising. Without it, we couldn't survive as a rescue.
If you love working with dogs and have the time and patience to work with a setter in need – consider fostering an A & B setter. It is so rewarding to see the personality start to shine once the setter begins to feel comfortable. It is a great feeling to know you made a difference in their life. Check out the Fostering page for more info.
These are just a few of the many areas where A & B can use your help.
