“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
We love and depend on our volunteers. There are many ways to help.
As a foster home based rescue, people who can foster for us are very important. We work closely with our fosters to assure that our rescues are well cared for and ready to move on to a “forever” home. A foster provides a loving home, socializes/trains (when needed), and takes care of the daily needs of a rescue. We provide any medical required, supply food, and other items necessary. When needed, we work with them to resolve any training or behavioral issues. As they are very knowledgeable on the temperament and personality of their dog, we ask our fosters to attend adoption events with their dogs.
We rely on donations to be able to keep saving dogs. We have a variety of fundraising events to raise money. We need people to solicit donations from people and businesses/corporations to use for raffles. We need people to help us to create raffle baskets. We need people at fundraising events to set up, welcome/assist our guests, sell raffle tickets, etc. We are always looking for ways to raise funds and welcome ideas.
We appreciate people that independently run fundraisers that benefit our rescue and help them in any way possible.
We attend “adoption events” and need people to transport equipment and animals to/from these events as well as represent A New Beginning Animal Rescue at them to provide information and answer questions about us.
We need people to transport dogs to/from veterinarian appointments and, on occasion, pick up dogs from a shelter or owner surrender.
Many of our dogs need grooming. If you have grooming skills and can offer your services, even occasionally, it would be greatly appreciated. Well groomed dogs show their full potential. They are happier, healthier and adopt quicker. We would be happy to reciprocate by listing you as one of our sponsors.
