“Others look at a DOG and see a lost cause. We look at that DOG and see an OPPORTUNITY”
We run solely on donations. We are always in need of momentary donations to cover the cost of our growing veterinary bills. We also can always use wet can food, dog treats, toys, baking soda, cleaning products, blankets, towels, and peanut butter.Read More
The first step to adding a foster or permanent dog to your family is to fill out the appropriate application and return it to Speranza at email@example.com. We will review your application and check your references and if they all check out, then we will set up a meeting for you to meet dogs that would fit well in your household. The most important step is to introduce any other animals in the home to the potential foster or adoptable dog and make sure that they will get along. Finally we will come to your house and do a home check to ensure that the home/yard is safe and well suited for the new addition to your family.
When fostering through Speranza, we can provide a crate, food and will cover all vetting expenses. However, we do insist that you live close enough to be able to get the dog to appointments at Dillsburg Veterinary Center. You will be able to schedule the appointments to fit your schedule. DVC is open evenings and Saturday until 1PM. Fostering is a huge part of our mission. Fostering allows dogs to adjust to a home setting, learn manners and get the one on one attention they need, while opening a kennel at the rescue and allowing Speranza to save another dog.
Speranza Animal Rescue is 100% run by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to make the sure dogs are exercised, loved, fed, medicated and cared for everyday; rain or shine. Our need is for dog walkers. Volunteers walk dogs for 2 - 5 miles when coming out to volunteer no matter that the weather is like. It is hard work and we get dirty, but the dogs make it all worth it. Potential volunteers are asked to fill out an application and if you meet the requirements you will be invited to a new volunteer orientation before you actually start. Unfortunately we are not accepting any new volunteers at the current time. If you would like to fill out an application for us to keep on file, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
