Adoption Coordinators

Adoption Coordinators are our volunteers who see each adoption through from start to finish. They play a vital role at PAWS!

Coordinators are assigned a specific group of dogs on our site. When an application comes in for one of these dogs, coordinators begin by interviewing the applicant over the phone followed by checking references. If approved, the adoption coordinator puts the applicants and southern fosters in touch or helps to facilitate a meet and greet with our local dogs.

Each application takes approximately one-hour to process over the course of one to two days on average.

The more dogs we can foster, the more dogs we can save.

We’re always looking for foster caregivers to provide our dogs with safe homes and lots of TLC until they’re adopted.

Fundraising Managers

When we rescue dogs, they often need vaccines, medical treatment and rehabilitation. To help us continue our life saving work, we’re always looking for people with creative fundraising ideas.

Transportation Volunteer

We often need help getting our dogs to and from the vet, to foster or adoptive homes, and to pet fairs. We also get donations of food, toys and veterinary supplies that need to get delivered from the donor.
