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.
Thanks so much for your interest in helping to transport our wonderful rescued Labradors! Our transport volunteers are mission critical and the need is great. With your help, we'll be able to save more dogs in need. Here are just a few ways that our transport volunteers help HOTLR every day.
pick-up dogs at shelters
transport dogs to the Lab Ranch in Leander
take dogs to/from vet appointments and events
deliver dogs to a foster home or forever home
Here are a couple of fast facts specific to our transport requests.
sent via email, text, and social media to our entire pool of volunteers and supporters
often are time-sensitive and date-specific, so please read carefully before you reply
sometimes involve a relay or hand-off to another volunteer, so be sure to let us know if you can help with any part of the transport request
loaner crates are available on request, but we also understand that not all vehicles will accommodate a lab-sized crate
many (not all) requests begin, end or are round trip to the HOTLR Lab Ranch in Leander, TX
each transport request is unique, so we'll be sure to send you the specific details when you volunteer
Volunteering to help transport with HOTLR is a rewarding, fun and life-saving experience that can be done as your time and schedule allows. Thank you again for your interest and willingness to help! If you haven't already done so, please complete our online Volunteer Information Form.
