Volunteer & Foster

Wags and Whiskers Pet

Rescue is always in great

need of volunteers and

foster homes to help us

save more homeless

dogs! By opening your

home for a short time,

many more can be saved,

since they just need a

short term place to stay

before finding permanent

loving homes.  Our rescue covers all expenses, including vet care and food. All you need to do is give them a place to stay and some love and attention!

Fostering not only saves that dog's life, but allows us the space and resources to go save another from the shelter or from a neglectful home. Please consider opening your heart and home, for it will surely have a direct impact on saving more lives. Fostering is very rewarding, and as you get into the swing of it and see the loving homes that come along for them, it is easier to "let go" and do it again for the next. Once you see and understand the great need for foster homes, it becomes easier and greatly rewarding.

If you are interested in becoming a Foster, please fill out the application below and contact our Foster Coordinator, Raquel at (530) 715-1545 or email to raquel@wwprca.com. 


Ways to help volunteer:

​Volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of our animals. Our caring and hard-working volunteers help in a variety of programs throughout the year.  We have a kennel site in Willows and in Chico. Both sites are in need of volunteers to walk and feed the dogs and clean the kennels. Volunteers are also needed to assist at our adoption events . Volunteers under 18 years old must have a parent sign the release wavier. 

We invite you to join our volunteer team today by calling ​(530) 715-1545

Please see the volunteer form  and waiver release below.  Email the form to Lucy Parks with Wags and Whiskers Pet Rescue Volunteer in the subject line at raquel@wwprca.com.
