Opportunity Description:

Some volunteers provide a short-term, temporary home for a dog whose human companion is temporarily hospitalized. In cases where a dog is left homeless because her or his human companion must relocate to a non-pet friendly residence or long term care facility, volunteers are able to provide a foster home for the dog during a period of transition. This may or may not lead to permanent adoption into the home. Other volunteers are able to provide permanent homes for ElderDog canines who have lost a human companion due to relocation, illness, or death. Still other volunteers are able to assist with the care of dogs who live in an ElderDog residential facility. Time commitment: Varies with type of involvement. Note: Volunteers will be required to provide a vulnerable sector check.
