Volunteer

Foster

Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster. By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home, as well as help prevent overcrowding in our shelter. PFRT is always looking for more foster homes, especially throughout the busy spring and summer seasons. Some people might feel they could not foster as they would want to keep them all. I'm not going to fool you and say it is easy to let them go, but you have helped save a life.  

Transport

Sign up to be a rescue transporter. This is an awesome way to help get the pups to their new forever home. Transports normally occur on weekends and the legs run from an hour to maybe two hours. The transporter uses their own car and can deduct mileage under charitable giving. You will be hooked after your first transport. 

Home Checks

In order to make sure potential adopters have been fully screened, a home check has to be preformed. This is where a volunteer will go to the potential adopters home with a PFRT home visit check list. They meet with all family members, see how the family dynamic is, and the family's interaction with any animals in the home. The volunteer has to see the entire home to assess for any dangers that may be present. In the end, you have to ask yourself if you would let your pet be part of this family.
