WHY YOU MATTER
Without volunteers, Coming Back Home Rescue would not be able to operate and take in animals to help them find their way home. Every donated time you provide to the organization is a step closer to fulfilling our mission. We ensure, to the best of our ability, that our volunteers remain safe and educated for each animal they take on or a new task they are faced with.
You are not another face, another house, free-work ... You are our neighbors, friends and family, and we treat you like such. With different programs and roles, we are certain you can find your next calling.

Come enjoy the great outdoors and other fun activities with our rescues. As an Adventure Buddy, you'll come pick up a rescue for the day to take them to a pre-coordinated adventure. This could be walking trails, working side jobs, parks, beaches and more!
Fosters are our biggest necessity in the rescue to help us rehome animals and provide love for each one. These can be short-term or long-term. All supplies and medical bills are covered for a peace of mind. However, because we care so much about our volunteers, we ensure you have access to some helpful benefits for the safety and care of your loved ones.
Are you looking for a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and share it with our community? Under the guide of the Executive Director, learn about many amazing topics regarding pets and animal welfare. Hold community workshops to educate our friends and family on how to be the very best we can be for our furry little (or big) friends.
EUTHANIZATION RESCUE TEAM
Your role in S.C.E.R. is to help with effective communication, planning and ensuring that life is safe during the pull stages. You will be searching for animals in need, communication with shelters, finding and vetting fosters, arranging transport schedules and more - all pertaining to getting the animal from Point A to Point B. You will never work on your own and will always have some sort of help. However, you do not have to do every task that there is if you prefer sticking to just one, for example, such as networking and searching for animals in need or strictly working with just vetting fosters. No matter what you decide to do, you ARE making a difference.
OFFERED PROGRAMS AND OPPORTUNITIES
Our volunteer program is constantly evolving with the support of our volunteers. We have created different educational courses for our volunteers to help with their time here and share with others. In addition, we are working on helping our volunteers keep their own pets safe! You could say - "we care."
Open Resource Library
We have developed an ever-growing Google File of available knowledge and educational materials. This can be accessed 24/7. Things you can find in here include animal welfare laws, animal behavior, dealing with pet anxiety and more!
Starting 2023, we will be offering discounted FVRCP, DAPP, and Bordetella to our fosters for their personal pets to help keep them safe in your fostering adventures. We are currently not offering Rabies Vaccines at this time.
Discount or Volunteer Dog Walking or Sitting
When available, we can send out volunteers or freelancers to help walk your foster during busy days or if you are feeling you need a few days to relax. Raising dogs can be tiring and we completely understand. Leaving town? We will work towards finding a sitter for you that is approved by Coming Back Home Rescue. You must pay for some of these services but are discounted when through preferred workers.
**Reactive animals may have limited resources and require a notice up to three months in advance.
**We can't guarantee always having someone available, most specifically for dog walking.
We want to make sure our volunteers are safe and want to give them the opportunity to grow. Coming Back Home Rescue has plenty of opportunities for our volunteers to learn new things. Find out when our next course is!
