- Volunteer Your Time
We have adoption events every Saturday, with the hopes of finding permanent homes for the dogs and cats that are in temporary foster homes. You can come spend a little time helping with these events and in introducing these animals to our neighbors who are looking for a new addition to their family.

Here are some current volunteer opportunities:
- Become a foster family
- Photographer to get great looking pictures of new adoptable dogs
- Dog walker at events...even the dogs need to stretch their legs during these events
- Community outreach - be a part of the committees that handle events, marketing, education
- Laundry - someone to wash the cat beds and towels used each week
- Mechanic to take a look at a van that was donated for transporting animals
- Bakers to create goodies for bake sales, plus volunteers to assist with bake sale events
- Help put up flyers for events throughout the community
- People who like to sew to help make: "Adopt Me" vests for the dogs to wear; small pillow pads for the Cat Sav-A-Pet Center at PetSense; Pet themed items that can be sold during events such as pot holders, totebags, bandanas, blankets for both small and large dogs, etc.

Please contact us to become a Caldwell Animal Rescue volunteer and support the animals.

Spay & Neuter Myth logo
MYTH: "My pet will get fat and lazy."
FACT: Pets do get fat and lazy sometimes, but from overfeeding and lack of exercise, not from being spayed or neutered.
