Shelter Help

We also need volunteers. All ages (children under 18 must have a waiver signed prior to volunteering). The dogs are all in foster homes, so we are always in need of more homes for our babies to stay until a permanent home is found. We can always use help with projects around the new property and working with the rescue horses and ponies – cleaning, brushing, mucking stalls, and walking/riding (experienced riders only). Please print out and sign our PMMR Volunteer Release Form before coming out to help.


Maybe you’re not ready to adopt, but would like to help a dog in need. Perhaps you can provide a loving, supportive environment, but just aren’t ready to have a dog take up permanent residence. We hope you’ll consider becoming a foster dog parent who cares for a dog until we are able to find it a permanent, loving home.

Our foster families are invaluable in our mission to save dogs. We usually have an immediate need to remove a dog from their untenable situation. Yet we don’t have an immediate home for them. In such cases, our foster dog families can offer a “soft spot to fall” — and a place for these dogs to get ready for their forever home. If you’re interested in becoming a foster dog parent, please fill out our Online Application.
