Volunteer Opportunity

Boston Terrier Rescue of North Carolina would like to hear from you if you are looking for a volunteer opportunity in Greensboro, NC. We are a strictly non-profit, volunteer-run organization devoted to rescuing primarily purebred Boston terriers and secondarily Boston terrier mixes. Volunteers are devoted to the health, wellbeing, and future of each dog. Below is a list of all the aspects involved in rescuing these animals. We can use assistance in any or all of these areas.

Foster Care

We cannot operate without foster homes. The fewer foster homes available, the fewer dogs we can save. Foster families agree to accept a dog into their home as one of their own, take it to the vet for any needed medical treatments (with the cost paid for by us), nurture the dog, and get to know the dog well enough so that we can write an accurate bio for the dog.

You will determine, to the best of your ability, whether the dog does well with other dogs, cats, children, and adults. You’ll report the dog’s quirks, likes, dislikes, and anything else someone would want to know about one of our dogs before choosing to adopt it. If this is something you are interested in, please don’t hesitate to submit an application. We pay all veterinary expenses for each of our foster dogs.

For more information about becoming a foster home, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.

For specific questions about becoming a foster volunteer, contact Lisa Goersch, Volunteer Coordinator, at lgoersch@aol.com

Transport

When a dog comes into rescue, we must arrange to transport it to the designated foster home. We also help transport dogs to their new forever homes. We are always in need of individuals who can help with transports.

Home Visits

We need volunteers who will do home visits in their areas. A home visit involves going to an applicant’s home to meet the family after their application has been successfully processed. We are verifying that what the application has told us about themselves, their home/yard, and lifestyle are true. We also want to meet existing pets to give us a better idea about which of our Bostons would do well in that home.

Fundraisers

Because we are a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to help us accomplish our mission of rescuing Boston terriers. If you are creative, crafty, or don’t mind lending a hand to help out, we could use you in the area of fundraising! Volunteers organize fundraising events, search out new fundraising opportunities, set up information booths, and help to staff events where we are represented. The possibilities are endless!

We are always looking for individuals with skills and experience in grant writing, financial/tax management, graphic design, web design, marketing, etc. If you have a skill that might be useful to the rescue, let us know!
