One of the reasons that this committee has been so successful is because it is not just one person doing all of the work. It is shared among many people who care about our breed and want to be involved and make a difference. I know that when asked most people think about how busy they are in their own lives and cannot see where they have the time. We totally understand but feel it is a matter of setting priorities and asking yourself, even though you are busy, “What can I do?”
Usually you can find time to go to the phone and call on a few references, or do a home visit. Some of us might want to be more active and could take a dog to the Vet. Volunteering to walk a dog or help with grooming are just a few ideas on how each of us can help and make a difference. Taking one of our business cards and leaving it with your Vet on the next visit could lead to another rescue. We just ask that each of you get involved, no matter how little time you have, and share in the joy of seeing these dogs back to good health and starting a new life with a family that we have thoroughly checked out and have confidence in.
Become a Foster Parent:Volunteers are encouraged to increase the adoptability of STRNW's Scotty's by removing an animal from an unhappy environment and fostering in one's own home, thereby easing the transition and stress for the companion animal. Volunteers willing to commit to this position are frequently needed for our Special Needs animals. While fostering an animal, Foster Parents will work with STNW to find a new, permanent "forever home".
