|Volunteer with SOAR|
SOAR is an all volunteer organization who could not accomplish what we do without the help of some amazing volunteers! We are always looking for people with a soft spot for Airedales who would like to be a part of our team. If you have some extra time, please join us in our mission to place adoptable Airedales in loving new homes.
SOAR does not have a facility; instead our volunteers work out of our homes and communicate by phone, email and our website. Our volunteer positions fall into two broad categories: Hands On and Support, both of which are defined below. Take a look and see if there is something you can do to help.
Hands On Volunteer Positions
One of the most rewarding and satisfying ways to volunteer is to become a foster family. It's not always easy, but it is critical to a successful adoption.
Prior to placing a rescue Airedale with a new family, SOAR needs to personally see the homes and yards and visit with the families. There is no better way to help SOAR determine if an applicant should be approved than to see where and how our rescue Airedales will live. Home visits are also a great way to see how a family interacts with an Airedale. Coordinators and foster homes rely on this input to help them make good decisions when matching our rescue Airedales with forever homes.
SOAR covers 3 states which makes for quite a bit of territory. We work together when it comes to finding our rescue Airedales good homes. Sometimes the best home is found in a state other than where the Airedale is being fostered. Sometimes the Airedale needs surgery, training or special foster care to get ready for their new home. Any of these reasons result in the need to move our Airedales to other states within our area.
Here are some of the ways that you could help SOAR by performing a support role. Many of these support positions can be done from home on a part time basis.
