OPH Logo

Operation Paws for Homes is a nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs and cats who have overcome great odds and deserve wonderful, caring forever homes.

Though we have volunteers that volunteer at events, we also are in need of "event volunteers." A team that helps lead, coordinate, support and/or advise on our special events - large, medium, small, pop-up and annual. Many small events that we have implemented in the past, will be mapped out into an easy "how to" that is replicable by anyone, anywhere. This team will help in leading by example, but also help teach and train new volunteers to lead their own, in their area, so we can continue spreading our mission!

Most to all events will have a fundraising component. If assistance is needed in that area, OPH can absolutely help!

Event, program or project planning background preferred.

About Operation Paws for Homes

Location:

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.

Description

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.
