cute-dogs-picGet started Volunteering

Whether you just want to walk dogs on adoption day or become a foster for a rescue dog – you can make a difference in the lives of SQ Rescue’s dogs.  Many of them need so much attention when we get them; volunteers are the ways of our success.

Some of the benefits:

Be part of the solution.  You’ll join a rescue organization that has people working to make the world safe and more humane place for our rescues’.  You’ll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership and animal protection.

Get warm fuzzies.  You’ll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you’ve comforted.

Keep good company.  You’ll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind.  Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.

Meet the new you. You’ll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you’re capable of achieving.

Gain a new career.  You’ll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams.

Enjoy a wagging tail and a smile.  Didn’t someone once say that the best things in life are free?

Also remember, in conjunction with PetSmart Charities, SQ Rescue has adopt-a-pet days three times a month at PetSmart stores in Columbia.  We screen applicants and find forever homes for our rescues.  We operate solely on donations and volunteers, with no paid staff whatsoever.  Many of our dogs are in foster care – which provides them the opportunity to be house-broken, leash-trained, and socialized with other dogs.
