There are many ways that you can help.  From volunteering at events, helping with home visits, to fundraising and fostering dogs, there is something for everyone.  Check out some of the ways that you can help.

Mutts Matter Rescue relies on support from our community to continue our work on behalf of saving dogs. Your tax-deductible donations go directly to the care of our rescue dogs. Without your donations, we would not exist. Mutts Matter Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is run entirely by volunteers. Your gracious generosity can help save a life!

Foster homes temporarily shelter and care for our rescues in their homes until their forever home comes along. Most importantly, fostering saves lives by freeing up a spot in overcrowded shelters. Because our dogs can come from stressful or abusive situations, it is imperative to find a suitable foster to ensure that the appropriate temporary care and environment are provided.

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our group, and we could not be successful without them. Join us in helping save dogs in need. Whether it's transporting, fundraising, or coming to help at our adoption events-they all help us continue our work on behalf of the animals. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out our Volunteer Application.

Students - Did you know that you can earn service learning credits by helping our rescue dogs?  Project ideas could be a dog food/toy drive, or you could raise money by hosting a bake sale, lemonade stand, car wash, dog wash...get creative!  We also need volunteers at adoption day events to help handle dogs.

Artists, Photographers, Graphic Designers, Writers & Creatives - Give back using your talent and help save more mutts!  There are many ways that you can help by donating your time and talent in helping to write stories and create artwork, graphic design, and take photos to help market our adoptable dogs and help them find their forever homes. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, there are dogs waiting that can benefit from your creative skills! Contact us to see how you can help.

Calling All Local Businesses and Service Providers - Do you provide a specialty service for pets or maybe you have a business that caters to the canine crowd?  Perhaps you just have a heart for hounds and want to help by donating your products, time and/or services.  As a non-profit charity, Mutts Matter Rescue is always looking to the community for services and supplies, as well as locations and partnerships for special fundraising events.
