Thanks to the volunteers that help us fulfill our mission.
Nine Lives Rescue Mission is 100% volunteer based and therefore we rely on our volunteers to operate. We greatly appreciate any and all of the help we receive.
You can help by volunteering your time and energy with us by fostering a dog, fundraising, advertising, training, grooming, transporting, helping out the adoption and foster committees, or whatever else your talent may be. We always need the help of people who can help bake, sew and build.
Listed below are the main groups within Nine Lives Rescue Mission. Volunteers are always needed to keep up with our day to day operations, foster, transport or help out at events.
