Volunteer

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 share, 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”.

Transporting
Help move dogs to/from their foster/adopter. See our Transport page for additional information & application

Fundraising
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.

Fostering
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.
