Does AHDRO need volunteers to help with rescue efforts?
Absolutely! We are always looking for volunteers to help: foster, transport, groom, set up events, fundraise. Nearly all talents are needed and used in rescue to run the day to day operation or to offer expertise only once. You need not live in the Columbus area to be involved. Please tell us what you are interested in helping with and we can get you started. Contact our Event/Volunteer Director for more information.
Why does AHDRO do home visits on prospective adopters and fosters?
When clients come to us to adopt or foster a homeless dog, we believe it is important to get to know them and see the home environment. By meeting the client in their home, we can suggest the appropriate dog or dogs for the client’s lifestyle. The more we learn about potential adopters/fosters, the better the match will be. All of the dogs in our program have lost one or more homes in their lives, often through no fault of their own.
We owe it to our dogs to find the best match so that these loving pets never have to experience the heartache of losing a family again. Some homes and lifestyles are not suited for our dogs because the characteristics of the breed or a particular personality trait of the dog desired. If the home is not approved, it is with the best interest of the dog and the client in mind.
