Like talking about dogs? Like meeting our fabulous foster pups? Outreach is key to helping spread the word on OPH, rescue work and dogs.
Volunteer as an Adoption Event Volunteer with Operation Paws for Homes! Most weekends we have adoptions in Virginia, Maryland, DC, and South Central Pennsylvania and would love to have a few extra hands to help introduce the dogs to potential adopters.
Operation Paws for Homes is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with our weekend adoption events at various pet supply stores in the DC Metro Area. These events occur on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, exact dates and times can be found on our website by following this link: https://ophrescue.org/events.
Volunteer duties include handling and walking the dogs, giving basic information about the dogs to interested customers, and giving information on Operation Paws for Homes adoptions and volunteer opportunities.
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.
