Our organization is made up of committed individuals who believe all animals should be treated with respect and love. Your help saves the lives of dogs in real need. The more you volunteer, the more we dogs we can save together.

Please help where and whenever you are able -- all assistance is welcomed. Little Angels Rescue is in need of volunteers in all areas of the state to assist with us with the following:

  • Home visits
  • Interstate transports
  • Transport coordination
  • Events & fundraising
  • Miscellaneous dog-related assignments
  • Donated Foods and other supplies
  • Foster homes
  • Website maintenance & related assignments

Little Angels Rescue is careful to ensure the dogs we place in homes are in the very best homes we can find. It is vital to have a home visit done prior to adoption and the lack of these volunteers can drastically slow down the adoption process. We provide Home Visit Volunteers with guidelines and a home visit report that is completed. This information helps us to make sure we have the data we need to make an informed decision.

We routinely need people to help get dogs transported from different areas of the state to Little Angels Rescue and have an even greater need for foster homes in Florida.

Another area where we need good, dependable help is in arranging our transports. This is a critical area that needs someone that is good with communicating via e-mail, organized and available to stay on top of a transport event on the day it is happening to be the “go-to” in case of emergency (i.e. “I’m early, I’m late, who am I meeting and where – I lost my paper with all my notes”)… This is not a full-time job, but when a transport is being arranged or in process, it requires someone that can really pay attention to the event.

An area we need help in is with Dog Assignments (DA). A DA Volunteer is assigned a dog (more if they can handle the work load). They receive all the applications for the dog, review (pre-screen), find volunteers to conduct the home visits, coordinate the home visits (make sure they get done in a timely manner), forward the home visit reports to the board, and communicate with the applicants regarding home visits, our process, the status of their application.

There are several web sites where our available dogs are posted. We need help in keeping these web sites up to date. We need individuals with advanced computer skills to assist us in keeping our web data current. Please fill out our Volunteer Application if you can help.

If you are interested in fostering, complete the Foster Application. Learn more about our foster programs by visiting Foster Care. Foster homes are especially needed in DeSoto, Charlotte, Lee and Sarasota counties.
