Appreciation Is Year Round

There is a special time set aside for National Volunteer Appreciation Week, but Rover’s Kids think that every day is Volunteer Appreciation Day! They are blessed to have a wonderful team of volunteers, known as their Ambassadors! Several have been with us 10 to 15 years, and some are newbies. You may recognize them as your neighbors while they are out walking the Kids during an event. We would love to have you volunteer!

Each and every one of them brings a different talent to the table, whether that be packing and unpacking the car at events, walking and picking up the poop as they go, brushing out a tangle or two, making phone calls to our cousins, sewing our never-ending projects, addressing or stuffing envelopes, supplying the never-ending need for squeaky toys, picking up item donations, answering questions, posting on social media like Nextdoor and Facebook or watching for someone who needs our help, promoting our Emergency Program, monthly balloon getter, making sure the Kids have sweaters in the winter, donating gift certificates for a bag of the Kids’ favorite food, surprising the Kids with community involvement for donations, and helping to fund the vital services needed like tags, vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter, dentals, and grooming.

Not only are the volunteers appreciated, but they are a vital part in keeping the Kids safe and healthy. Our whole community has stepped forward to assist the Kids in finding their best match for a forever home. There are so many ways you can help and may not even know you are doing it. We truly appreciate your sharing the word of how wonderful our Kids are to adopt, that the support system we provide for the life of the dog is a step above, that we do pet sitting for the community, that we always will take care of any Kid during an emergency, and even if it is not a Rover’s Kid, we step up. “It is all about the Kids” for Rover’s Rest Stop & Ranch!
