Operation Paws for Homes
Transport drivers are needed to drive from Northern VA to Southwestern VA to pick up dogs and drive them back to Northern VA to meet their fosters. It is a very long day, but so worth it. OPH reimburses for the gas and up to $25 per person for meals. You MUST have had no accidents or moving violations for 3 years and you will need to complete the OPH volunteer application and dog handling training.
About Operation Paws for Homes
PO Box 90813, Alexandria, VA 22304, US
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.
