R.A.I.N. Rescue is ALWAYS seeking foster homes for SMALL dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
We are currently needing volunteers for these Departments also:
Foster Homes, Transporters, Groomer, Adoption Center and Fund-raisers.
FOSTERING: We take in "small" dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to foster.
The fosters DO NOT pay out of pocket for expenses while Fostering
ANY animals in our Rescue. This is a Misconception of many folks. The Rescue pays for everything necessary. We also accommodate for time away.
*Some of our best fosters have been the winter visitors, who may only be able to take in dogs for 3-4 months.
TRANSPORTERS: A person designated to take the dogs and cats for their vetting. (Spay/Neuter etc), groomers and sometimes to pick up and drop off at adoption events when the fosters are unable to bring them. Picking up new strays/owner surrenders etc and taking them to their foster home. This position will pay mileage.
FUND-RAISERS: Anything to help bring in funds to our non-profit Rescue. You will earn 10% of the money brought in to help the animals for each event!
GROOMER: A skilled groomer with their own grooming equipment that can groom / bathe/clip nails on small dogs/puppies. We will supply the shampoo/towels etc. We would bring them to your location in the east valley.

PHOTO POSTINGS: Cats & kittens that are adoption ready at the Petsmart Center, take photos of cats & kittens and get information on them, post on 3 of our favorite sites online.

*All these positions help the animals find forever homes. Please open your heart & possibly your home, costing you only "time".
Nothing "out of pocket"….and all from your heart.
We have a great need for donated goods as well as funding help. Cash donations can be specifically routed to "Chalen's Challege," a fund for special medical expenses.
You can donate by Paypal. Or mails checks to R.A.I.N. Rescue PO Box 2006, Chandler, AZ 85244. All donations are tax deductable and save lives!
During store hours you can see some of the cats in the pet windows..and adopt one if you fall in love with it!
*Small dogs are available on MOST Saturdays, but best to call ahead if you plan to come for a dog in mind. Often we adopt them out during the week and they don't make the weekend!
You can always text the name of the animal, and dog/cat to: 480-628-5058 to see if the pet is still available.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
