The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
By opening up your home to a foster dog, you'll literally save a life. Most of our dogs are pulled from high-kill shelters in the Midwest after being abandonded by their previous owners. Many have a slim chance of finding their forever home, but every single one of them deserve one.
Our goal is to rescue and rehome as many dogs as possible, and we need you to help.
As a foster home, you'll provide love and care to these wonderful animals while they're up for adoption, which can last a few days to a few months. We'll pay for their food, supplies and vet bills, and you'll bring them to our weekly adoption events in Schaumburg.
Even if you can only foster one dog, it'll make such a big difference. There is no minimum requirement to volunteer. Please contact us to become a foster home today!
