​Volunteer 

Are you someone that would like to put your energy towards helping dogs in need?   We would love to have your help.

 

With the help of our volunteers, we can dedicate most of our financial resources to caring for our four legged friends.  Our volunteers provide extensive socialization, handling for our dogs – setting them up for success with their new families.

Let us know when you are ready to help out a great cause, call us at (956) 466-0067, email, or come by PetSmart any Saturday or Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm.

 

We look forward to hearing from you!
 

Fostering

BAD’s foster program allows us to rescue, socialize and place our dogs and cats into loving forever homes. As a foster parent, you will nurture our dogs and cats (we pay of all of the expenses) until they are adopted.  Fostering is important because it:

  • Offers our dogs and cats a warm, safe, loving environment – away from the life in a shelter;

  • Allows our dogs and cats the opportunity to regularly interact with humans and other animals, which is necessary for successful socialization;

  • Provides valuable insight on the dogs and cats social & physical needs and temperament, which is helpful in matching our dogs and cats with their forever homes.

Fundraising and Special Events

As a non-profit, BAD relies on donations to fund our rescue efforts. We need volunteers to help with various fundraising activities throughout the year. Examples include assisting with our weekly adoption events, strategically posting flyers around town, updating social media.  Our events are a lot of fun and extremely rewarding.

 

Transporting

If an animal needs to be transported to a rescue group out of town, volunteer/drivers are needed to assist. If you are in the Brownsville area we NEED your help.
