Despite everyone's best efforts to prevent dogs from getting loose, every year a few
OPH dogs escape and get lost. This is a scary and stressful situation for both the dog
and the foster or adopter. OPH has a Lost Dog Team that helps adopters and fosters
find lost dogs and get them home as quickly as possible. Volunteers are essential to
this process, by putting up flyers and posters, setting up and refilling feeding stations,
transporting the trap and trail cameras, and taking a shift on a "stakeout" when a trap is
live. After completing a brief training, Lost Dog Team members are considered "on call" and serve when the need arises.
Lost Dog Volunteers are needed in Virginia, Maryland, DC, and Pennsylvania.

About Operation Paws for Homes
PO Box 35606, N. Chesterfield, VA 23235, 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.
