Are you looking to get involved? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of animals throughout the Triad? Then you have come to the right place. Red Dog Farm is currently in need of foster families and wonderful volunteers to help us rehome homeless animals in the Triad. Many of the animals in our program need a ride to events, a warm bed to curl up in and a patient heart to help them adjust to life of the streets or without the family they have known since being a baby.
Thank you for considering volunteering and/or fostering! We have several animals in our program looking for their forever home with more coming in almost weekly. Whether you are looking to hold a dog at an adoption event, help us around the office, or opening your home or farm temporarily up to help a homeless pet we look forward to speaking to you further. Please complete the form below!
Mark your calendar and join us for a Volunteer Orientation at our Bur-Mil Park office. The Red Dog Farm office is located in Bur-Mil Park at 5836 Bur-Mil Club Road. Bring a friend, co-worker or family member with you. You do not have to complete the application prior to the meeting but it helps to streamline the process.
Volunteer Orientation Dates:
Fall Dates TBA – please complete the volunteer application and we will update you when the orientation is scheduled!
**NOTE FOR STUDENTS** We have a limited number of “internships” and service learning hours available for high school students. We encourage you to apply early to volunteer through our service learning hours. “
Our biggest need right now is for foster homes for large breed dog fosters, pig fosters, and rabbits!
Volunteer Q & A
What types of volunteer opportunities are available?
Because we do not have a “shelter,” our greatest need is for foster parents. Please visit our fostering page for more details.
Can I volunteer at the farm?
Red Dog Farm is the private residence of the organization’s founders, and is not open to the public. The animals in the care of Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network are not all located at Red Dog Farm. In fact, the vast majority of the animals in our care are spread out across Guilford, Forsyth and Rockingham counties in the care of individual foster families. Foster families care for everything from kittens to horses in their private homes (or barns) and Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network pays all of the bills for those animals.
I am unable to foster animals. Are there other opportunities to help?
Yes. We also have volunteers who help in the office at Bur-Mil Park and at adoption fairs and special events. If you can commit to a certain number of hours or a set schedule, we’d love to talk to you about volunteering. We don’t have many opportunities for “one time” volunteer work because it takes a lot of our time to educate volunteers, so we’d like to spend our time working with people who plan to become involved long-term.
If I am interested in fostering or becoming a long-term volunteer, what is my next step?
If you are interested in fostering, please submit the fostering application on the How Can I Help page. If you are interested in fostering or volunteering, please fill out a foster/volunteer application here.
