I’m a cat foster parent and it is truly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. To see these cats and kittens go from frightened and alone, to feeling loved and safe is incredible. Yes, it is hard to see them move in to their forever homes, but also so much satisfaction in knowing you helped and can keep helping others.
Volunteer with CAAR
Charlie’s Angels Animal Rescue is a volunteer organization. We have a handful of dedicated kennel staff, but without our volunteers we truly could not do what we do best – save lives.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, WELCOME! We have plenty of ways for you to get involved.
• Be a Foster – Being a foster family is a critical part of animal rescue.
• Help at our shelter – Are you the “handy” type? Would you like to help with our maintenance?
• Marketing and Fundraising – As a non-profit organization we rely 100% on donations. That means lots of fund raising activities, grant writing, marketing, and creating ways to raise money.
• Meet and Greet Events – We do not do on site adoptions…ever… but we do meet and greet events every month. We need folks who like to talk to potential adopters, and be on hand at these events to spread the word about Charlie’s Angels.
• Dog Handlers – Our pups love to go for walks. They also love going to our Meet and Greet events. If you’d like to become a dog handler, we have a three step training plan.
• Transportation – All animals who come through Charlie’s Angels get spayed or neutered. Some also require a trip to the vet. Would you be willing to get the animals to their appointments?
We have flexible options that will fit your schedule. Are you ready to sign up? Complete the Volunteer Application and submit it. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to schedule you for an orientation!
NOTE: You must be 18 or older to volunteer at our shelter. If you are under the age of 18 we work with recognized groups including Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, schools, community associations! Drop us an email at info@CharliesAngelsAnimalRescue.com for more information.
We rescue animals from area shelters and they all must be transported either to Safe Haven or to a foster home. All animals require trips to the vet for various treatments and vaccinations. We also do a lot of adoption and public events so we often need help transporting animals.
I’ve fostered for a few organizations, but I found CAAR to be the best on many levels. First, they are thorough in placing the right fosters that will thrive in your home environment. Next, they give you clear descriptions on personality traits, needs, medical information and what motivates your foster. Also they keep great medical records and keep you posted regarding upcoming procedures (spay etc.) that your foster is in need of. They provide countless events for you to showcase your foster dogs and are certain to get pictures of both dogs and cats to put online for potential adopters to browse. I’ve fostered 3 dogs and 3 litters of kittens for CAAR and enjoyed them all!
