About

For Otis Sake Rescue is seeking volunteers for the 2017 calendar year. Specific activities will be posted here as they are scheduled. Please contact us if you have interest in becoming a regular volunteer and can assist with any of the areas listed below.

1. Fostering - Open your home and provide training and care to a rescued dog until adoption occurs. For Otis Sake is a foster-only organization (we have no permanent facility) so this is a high need activity for us.

2. Home Visits - Visit potential fosters or adopters homes to ensure that animals will receive the training and care they need to flourish.

3. Transport - Transport animals to/from fosters, boarding facilities, vet appointments, events, and support transport events by walking/watering animals.

4. Adoption events - Help facilitate adoption events by handling dogs, meeting with potential adopters, answering questions about the For Otis Sake adoption process and organization.

5. Special events - Attend special events and provide assistance as needed (setting up/tearing down, selling merchandise, preparing refreshments, parking of vehicles, selling tickets, etc.). This is a high need activity for us.

6. Fundraising - Help coordinate fundraising activities, sell tickets and/or other items associated with fundraising efforts (For Otis Sake merchandise, raffle tickets, event tickets, gift cards, etc.). This is a high need activity for us.

7. Marketing/PR - Help spread the word about the For Otis Sake Rescue, activities, events, and fundraisers through various outlets (mailings, email blasts, social media outlets, posters, etc.).
