Volunteer Opportunities

Transporter

All Points West GSPR is in search of Transporters to help us retrieve and deliver dogs from shelters, surrendering owners, and other rescues to their new foster family or from APWGSPR to their new adoptive home. Have a GSP friendly vehicle and love a good roadtrip? If so we would love to chat with you. 

Home Visits

Home Visit volunteers help us screen prospective adoptive/foster families’ homes looking to add a GSP to their home. Home checks are performed for every prospective adoptive and foster family.  We like to make sure that every new home has certain required elements. This entails visiting with the applicant at their home, observing the environment, both physical and emotional, and determining if this is a suitable home for the GSP. Different Shorthairs will have different needs in what constitutes a proper home for them. The process does not take long and is very rewarding.  Sound like fun? 

Dog Spotter

Do you feel competent to identify a GSP, its colors and markings, whether it is a purebred or mixed Shorthair?

Internet access and strong knowledge of the GSP breed standard are required, guidance and training will be provided. Time commitment - approximately 1-2 hours twice a week.

Certified Trainer or Behaviorist Specialist

Are you a certified dog trainer or an animal behavior consultant? We need both! Proper training and socialization greatly increases a dog’s chance of being adopted. Sometimes we receive a rescue that has endured a particularly difficult life prior to rescue and could benefit for a behavior consultation and desensitization. If you are certified or have extensive experience in either training or canine behavior and would be willing to donate your services please contact us. 

Are you crafty? Do you craft, sew, woodwork or are you an artist? 

Yes, well please volunteer. We need you! We are always looking for creative minds and artsy souls to help us create items to sell in our online store. We also need assistance with creating Adopt Me bandana's along with other items for our fundraising events.
