Rescue. Rehome. Rejoice!

Volunteer With Us


We can't do it without you.

As a 100% volunteer-based organization, we are thrilled you are interested in joining us! Our volunteers are the backbone of Compact Canine Rescue and we can't wait to introduce you to the team that makes it all happen. Please take a few minutes to read through the website, learn our foster and adoption processes, and read the stories of the dogs whose lives have changed. When you're ready, please fill out our VOLUNTEER APPLICATION!

Supplies and monetary donations are always appreciated. Check out this page for more information on ways to donate.


Instead of adopting through a breeder or pet store, adopt one of our amazing dogs. Your life will never be the same!


Provide love, care, and a home for one (or more!) of our dogs until they are ready to find their family.

Host an Event or Fundraiser

Consider hosting a bake sale, organize a raffle . . . the options are endless. Contact us so we can help you get the resources you need to create an amazing event.

Application Processing

Have time to talk? Volunteer to check personal and veterinary references or complete telephone interviews. Prefer to be more hands on? Help us with our home visits.


We have foster families located in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Sometimes we need volunteers to drive dogs to a "meet up" city in order for them to get to their foster home.

Network & Educate

Share posts on social media. When friends and family are looking to add a dog to their family, send them to us.
