It takes a TEAM to save lives! There are many ways to volunteer at Cody’s Friends Rescue! Let us know your talents and we will put them to great use! We welcome volunteers 18 years and older. Volunteers under the age of 18 may help as well, if they’re accompanied by a parent or guardian.


Benefits of Volunteering

  • You’re reducing the euthanasia rates

  • You can earn community service hours

  • You can watch a dog’s transformation from despair to pure happiness

  • You’ll make new friends (human and dog friends)!

Current Volunteer Opportunities

  • Foster

    • Fosters are the backbone of our organization! As a foster, you provide a safe and loving home for the pup, provide care (food, exercise, basic training). You help with getting your pup to vet appointments (Cody's covers all medical care), and you help determine what your foster dog's perfect home looks like. Fosters provide us pictures and bios to help us find that home! Apply here! (link to foster application).

  • Temp Foster

    • Temp fosters fill in for a foster of record for specific dates during vacations or when family obligations arise.

  • Remote Foster

    • Not in a position to bring a dog into your home? As a remote foster, you can serve as the advocate for a dog in boarding! Taking the dog on outings for socialization, getting pictures and information for a bio all help prepare the pup for adoption!

  • Transporter

    • We frequently use transporters to pick dogs up from shelters and deliver them to a foster, or to help a foster with vet appointments, etc. Some transporters donate time and gas, but we're happy to reimburse for gas money, too!

  • Event Support

    • We welcome volunteers to come out and help during our Meet-and-Greet events with everything from greeting guests, unloading and reloading the dogs, crates and supplies, walking the dogs for nature breaks, and more!
