Foster A Dog, Puppies, Cat or Kittens
Many rescue dogs and cats simply need more one-on-one people time and a sense of routine. Foster homes literally save lives, creating more space at our Adoption Center to rescue more pets facing euthanasia. Dog savvy people with fenced yards, and the time to devote to an additional pet, would be helping a long-term Milo dog by fostering for a month or so, and getting the dog primed for "real life" -- a home and a family! Taking a fostered dog to Mobile Adoption events is very helpful. Foster homes are also needed for shorter time frames for cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies. We also rescue a LOT of mom dogs with puppies and in the Spring and Summer months many mom cats with their litters - fostering a family is super helpful in saving many lives!
Help At Milo Point Richmond
Milo Point Richmond opened on 12/8/2013. This is our new "forever" location in a great new 5000 sf space. We have dog yards, our own Dog Park and the small town that is Point Richmond a short walk away. We need volunteers to help greet people and assist with adoptions, help with many animal care tasks, dog walking, assist in the office and answering phones, and other administrative tasks. Let us know how you can help, call 510-900-2275, or better yet stop in or attend a Volunteer Orientation on the second and last Thursdays of the month at 5pm.
Mobile Adoptions and Outreach
Milo is looking for pairs of volunteers to go out to busy retail locations and set up a table and hand out information - taking a couple puppies a dog... some critters to attract attention.... call Milo Point Richmond and ask for Lynne, or email email@example.com if you would like to help raise funds and spread the word about Milo and our bustling Adoption Center, Milo Point Richmond (MPR)!
Every weekend there are mobile adoption events, mostly at various locations in Marin, sometimes in the East Bay. We always need volunteers to help with set up, taking care of the critters during the events, and breaking down at the end of the day. Mobiles are held at Corte Madera Town Center, Terrapin Crossroads and various Petfood Express Locations around the Bay Area. We also attend many Pet Fairs in the Summer months.
