You can help rescue dogs right from your desk - virtual dog rescue volunteers NEEDED. Don't have time to volunteer at an event? Can't foster a dog in your mother-in-law's house? How about helping out by posting ads on Craigslist or writing an engaging and entertaining biography!

Posting information about our adoptable rescue dogs on Craigslist ads gets one in five dogs adopted, and they sure appreciate the help. Operation Paws for Homes rescues and adopts 1,500 dogs each year and 300 found homes because people like you post prewritten ads on Craigslist for them - all cut and paste. Super simple. Or if you are feeling more creative, try your hand at writing our fantastic dogs profile!

Hundreds of people see OPH Rescue ads and click through to the website, perhaps to apply for the dog advertised, or to check out the other pups. Regardless - this bring them to OPH Rescue and connects them with deserving dogs. Would you love to be a link in the chain?

We are looking for additional team members who would be willing to devote at least 20 minutes a week to posting ads on Craigslist. You would be working with other experienced and supportive team members to help get the dogs and events out there. Most of you know that posting an ad on Craigslist is pretty simple. And once your account is established, it's so easy to just click "renew", to post again.

About Operation Paws for Homes


PO Box 35606, N. Chesterfield, VA 23235, US

Mission Statement

Operation Paws for Homes, Inc. rescues dogs of all breeds and ages from high-kill shelters reducing the numbers being euthanized daily. Our goal is to fulfill the dreams of dogs who find themselves abandoned in shelters.


OPH Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs who have overcome great odds and deserve wonderful, caring forever homes. These dogs are rescued from overcrowded high kill shelters in the southern region of the United States. We also rescue a few international dogs partnering with shelters and rescues in India and Turks & Caicos who rescue dogs from dangerous and deplorable conditions.

OPH does not operate a shelter or have a physical location. We rely on foster families who open their homes to give love and attention to each dog while it waits for a forever home. In addition, we partner with wonderful boarding facilities who care for our rescue dogs. Through the foster program and our partners, we learn about each dog and its needs. These dogs have been through a lot and it may take days or weeks to allow their personality to completely unfold . We strive to provide as many details as possible to potential and future adopters which increases the likelihood of a good match for each dog and family.

Together We Rescue.
