Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Because we are statewide (and into neighboring states), we rely on volunteers to assess dogs in pounds, assist with transports and as temporary or permanent (until adopted) foster homes.  If you have a love for this wonderful breed and a desire to help make a difference in the lives of homeless GSPs, please consider volunteering… the dogs need you!
