After completing the required mentoring, there are many areas of opportunity to help the rescue run. You can sign up for transportation, laundry, spa\neuter clinic help, adoptions, host weekend, photos, bio writing, grant writing, events, and various administration duties.
To best care for the dogs, trained volunteers are scheduled ahead of time to ensure the dogs and other volunteers will receive the care and support they need. Multiple orientations are offered each month and we welcome anyone to sign up for these orientations to receive an overview of volunteer opportunities and have a tour.
Saving Grace hosts open houses throughout the year to welcome our community. At this time, there are volunteers available to answer questions about volunteering and provide more information as needed.
Do I need to go thru a mentor session if I only plan to do administrative work or other jobs not working with the dogs directly?
Yes, everyone must attend the mentoring session, no matter what type of volunteering you will be doing,
The mentor session will go over where supplies are kept, dog safety/handling, and give you a better understanding of our mission and rescue organization.
You won’t be bored…it’s a fascinating peek into who we are, what we do, and why!
Yes, proof of current tetanus is required by all volunteers, as we have crates, fencing, etc that can be a hazard if cut on.

Yes, we have limited group opportunities because of the need to manage and ensure the safety of our dogs and volunteers on site. We are always in need of assistance, but group activities need to coordinated on a case by case basis. Email email@example.com if you are interested.
