Our national operations are made possible by a network of uncompensated volunteers throughout the United States.
These volunteers tirelessly donate their time, energy, money, and homes to this cause. Volunteers spend endless hours rescuing at-risk dogs and aiding in their removal from shelters. They also advertise dogs on the internet and in local papers; put up posters in their local communities; help to transport dogs to foster homes, other no-kill animal rescues and to permanent homes. Many dedicated volunteers have been known to nurse dogs back to health, bathe and groom them and even buy and deliver dog/cat food to foster families. Our volunteers will jump in the car at a moment’s notice to rescue a dog that only has one day to live.
To ensure quality care for all dogs placed by our rescue, no dog is moved to a foster or permanent home without a SAVE A DOG A DAY volunteer first screening the applicant and visiting the home. Only after this home visit is done, will an application for foster or adoption be accepted.
What We Hope To Achieve
- To create a network of volunteer foster care facilities along major interstates where we can officially move and care for dogs during their two week quarantine period.
- To assist in creating an internet based network whereby rescuers can better communicate with one another and with shelters.
- To establish a media campaign raising awareness about shelter issues and the grotesque euthanasia of so many discarded dogs.
- To increase the dialogue between all parties involved, both private and public, to coordinate the rescuing, advertising, fostering, transportation and adoption for the millions of dogs suffering in shelters across the country.
