Making a difference one rescued dog at a time, until they all find a home!

Volunteer Information and ways to  help!


We have several opportunities to help us grow 

1) Manage Website - add new dogs, remove adopted dogs and maintain the "Happy Tails" page. Requires some website experience and about 1-2 hours per week maintaining and updating the site.

2) Fund Raising - we would love to grow our rescue and someday have a building of our own to offer housing, training, and other services to our rescue dogs and the humans that help them. We also need a transport van and we have no experience in fund raising. So, if you have experience, we need you!

3) Grant Writing - again we have no experience and really need someone who does. Please consider helping us with grant writing if you have experience.

4) Adoption Events - we need help with transport to and from Barkers Inn to pick up crates and set them up and tear down and return to Barkers Inn after our adoption events - takes about 1 hour before and after each event. Events are every other week at Whole Foods in Glen Allen VA.

5)Dog Walkers for Adoption events - you can volunteer for us at our adoption events to help handle dogs during events but you MUST BE OVER 13 years of age and you must make an appointment to volunteer. We can only have two volunteers per event or it gets very chaotic and dangerous for the dogs. Also you must bring a volunteer form with parents signature with you. 

We a small, all volunteer organization and we appreciate any help we can get. We are very grateful to all of our Foster Families and volunteers, Barkers Inn, Crossroad Vet, Jessica Beatheand Whole Foods of Glen Allen, VA .. with out you none of this would be possible.
