Volunteering for SRGA


Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer for Sheltie Rescue of GA, Inc.! SRGA relies heavily on a foster family's assistance and judgment from the moment the dog comes into our rescue program. If you decide to help, it will be a commitment that provides many rewards. There's a lot to know and we learn more with each dog we rescue. In fact, we encourage you to share your experiences and insights with us to be passed along to future volunteers.

Volunteering ... An Overview


While Fostering is one area for which we always need volunteers, there are many other ways in which you can help. Many of these positions already have active volunteers, but we can always use more help.


Even though there are others, here are some examples of the main ways we use volunteers:

  • Monitoring and returning calls from the hotline
  • Monitoring and responding to emails
  • Monitoring the various dog listings for Shelties in shelters 
  • Processing applications
  • Doing dog intakes
  • Pulling dogs from shelters
  • Transporting dogs
  • Maintaining this website
  • Maintaining the books
  • Volunteer recruitment
  • Fund-raising
  • Fostering
  • Being an officer or adviser


How to become a Volunteer


If you would like more information about Volunteering for Sheltie Rescue of Georgia, Inc., please feel free to contact us. If you already know that you would like to join our team, please complete the online Adoption Application and then the supplemental questions in the Volunteer Application.


If you are looking to Foster for us, you will go through a process similar to what our Adopters all go through once we receive your application. We will do a phone screening, check your references, inspect your home, and need to meet your family, including all animals. If you have small children, other dogs, or no fence, please be aware that there will be limits regarding which dogs will be available for you to foster, even if you are approved.


We occasionally need short-term / emergency homes in which to place dogs until they can get where they are going. In order to assist in this way, you will need to be an approved Foster Home. The Department of Agriculture requires a yearly signed Foster Home Agreement and bi-annual home inspection in order to be a Foster Home.
