Some ways

you can help


Volunteer your time

Currently volunteer opportunities are limited to adoption events. In person volunteering at the shelter is limited to preapproved volunteers and volunteer days that are announced on social media. Please note - we cannot take walk-up volunteers due to our insurance liability.

We're looking for people who can:

Provide general care to our rescue animals including, feeding, washing and grooming

Take our dogs for daily walks and help socialise them

Write creative bios and content for our website and social channels

Photograph our new dogs to share them with prospective owners

If you have these skills we'd love to meet you!

We’re excited for the extra cuddles and Marty is excited for the extra playtime! For your next foster or adoption please go see Cheryl Rhoads and all of the sweet puppies at the Tullahoma Animal Shelter
