There are several ways to volunteer for our rescue (and many others in the area). *Fostering is our number one need for volunteers. Without fosters we cannot save the lives of dogs. We do not take in dogs, if we do not have a foster family for him/her. Fostering is such an amazing way to give back. Bringing a dog into your home that has never been loved, never had meals on a regular basis, a belly rub, a good bath, or even just a warm spot to sleep…and giving him that, well, it’s priceless. Yes, it’s hard to say goodbye and often we hear people say that they could never foster because they would get too attached. You do get attached, but that is how it should be. When you see that dog leave with a loving forever family you know it was all worth it. When you foster for Snooty Giggles we do our best to make it as simple as possible. We obviously take care of all vetting expenses, but we also can provide you with all supplies needed including, food, leashes, collars, toys, etc. Though it’s nice when our foster families can provide transportation for vet appointments and what not…it isn’t required if you live or work within another volunteers area so that they can pick up the dog and get it where it needs to go. We also have a wonderful trainer/behaviorist that we can send to your home to help with any problems you may be having with your foster dog. Often simple tips over the phone can correct many problems. No foster experience is ever the same. Some dogs are certainly easier or more difficult than others. The first few days are always tough getting everyone into a routine, but generally by day 4 it’s a whole new ball game. One of the most common questions about fostering is “how long do foster families generally have a dog?” Well, this can vary. Most all dogs will be in a foster home for at least two weeks which is about the time it takes to learn a little about a new dog and make sure that puppies don’t break with any puppy illnesses. Puppies in general go faster than adult dogs. Seniors obviously take longer…..and adult dogs are hard to say. Obviously some breeds and breed mixes are easier to adopt than others. If you don’t feel like you could commit to several weeks/months of fostering, there are often times when we simply need someone to foster over the weekend or for a few days until another foster family’s current foster leaves or when foster families go out of town. Temporary fosters are just as important and always in need. If you are considering fostering but still have questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to answer those questions or direct you to one of our regular fosters who can tell what their experiences have been like volunteering in our program. All fosters are required to fill out the same application as adopters which helps us to know which dogs would work best in your household.
is another important part of rescue. We pull dogs from shelters from all over our area including KY and AL. Having extra wheels and hands to bring these dogs back to Middle TN is huge!!! We are also often asked for help with random dogs that have found themselves in bad situations and need us to get them out of there ASAP….we never know where this places may be….east, west tn….or maybe just down the road. But even having volunteers to pick up legs of these trips is a great help. And lastly on transport we often have dogs leaving for New England two Thursdays a month. The New England transport leaves from Goodlettsville, TN (right off of I-65) every other Thursday at 11:30 a.m. It is nice to have volunteers who can gather the dogs together with paperwork and deliver them safely to Bo and Chris who will then get them to their forever homes up north.
is something that anyone can do…..we often have items of which we are in great need. For instance when it is puppy season we go through lots and lots of newspaper. It is wonderful when one person can shoot an email to everyone in the office asking for the “recycling pile”!!!! We have several people in and around our area that are happy to be the dropping arena for these items and then those volunteers will get them to us. Other donations that are easy to collect in an office setting include cleaning supplies, old towels or blankets, as well as gently used pet items like collars, leashes, bowls, and beds.
we are currently looking for someone with some experience (or desire to learn) in writing grants. If you are interested in being on our volunteer list please email us at email@example.com . Once added to the list you will receive weekly emails with a list of our foster, transport, and gathering needs.
