Foster homes are critical to the success of our all-volunteer organization. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs we can bring into rescue. Foster "parents" are kind, caring, dog oriented people (age 21 or older) who are interested in making an invaluable contribution by providing a loving and safe environment, treating the rescue dog as one of their own.
Foster families work to socialize each dog, training them in basic house manners and assessing the dog's personality as it relates to other dogs, cats and children (medical care and special training, if needed, is provided by the Rescue).
Foster parents promote their fostered dog by attending Wag N Train special events, giving the dogs great exposure to potential forever families.
Some of our rescues come from unhealthy environments. In these cases, the foster family works to rehabilitate them so they are able to comfortably transition to new homes. This is a REWARDING volunteer position paid for by the love shown in the eyes and hearts of each rescued dog and the knowledge that you have saved a life! If you are interested in helping rescued dogs through fostering, please fill out our Foster Application:
Are you interested in helping our rescue dogs find homes by planning or participating in adoption events? As an Events Manager, you will work with various organizations like the Nebraska Humane Society or local pet supply stores to arrange "meet and greets." You will also coordinate a team of volunteers to encourage event attendance so that our dogs receive maximum exposure.
If you are a creative people person and want to help our dogs find loving homes by working with the public and other volunteers, please participate in showcasing our terriers and demonstrating Wag N Train Terrier Rescue's mission. Contact us for more information about being the Events Manager or a Events Team Member.
Volunteers who participate in fundraising efforts are essential to the survival of our organization. Please consider providing assistance in raising money for the Wag N Train Medical Fund: all medical expenses for our dogs are supported by donations.

If you would like to join the Fundraising Committee please Contact us for more information.
