How Can You Help?

Foster Homes

Our greatest need is a place to keep our animals until we can find their forever homes. Since we don't have a shelter, we depend on foster homes. If you have room for a dog or cat in your home, it's one of the best ways that you can volunteer. Foster homes usually keep their animals for a period of a couple of weeks to a couple of months, until they are adopted.

It's easy - we pay for all of the animal's healthcare, food, and supplies, and can provide a crate. All you have to do is provide a loving temporary home! Fostering is a very fulfilling way to help out. If you've thought about adopting a pet, but aren't quite sure what breed is best for you, fostering is a wonderful way to try out different types of animals and determine whether they are suitable for your lifestyle. You are still helping to save the animals that you don't decide to keep as your own pet! It's a win/win situation.

If you think you'd be interested in fostering one of our homeless animals, please email us at arkofsanjuan@cox.net and we'll be happy to send a "Foster Application" to you by return email.

We rely entirely upon volunteers to help as many animals as possible! We need reliable volunteers for a variety of tasks including: walking dogs, driving adoptable animals to and from adoption events and veterinary appointments, distributing flyers with photographs and descriptions of adoptable pets, working fundraising bake sales, and staffing our booth at adoption/community events to introduce our animals to potential adopters.

If you would like to be informed when volunteer opportunities arise, please contact us at arkofsanjuan@cox.net to be added to our e-mail list. If you would like to download a volunteer application, click here
