Foster A Pet Volunteer
We can't rescue without you. Safe, loving foster homes are essential to our rescue mission. Without them, we have no place for our rescued animals to go. By opening your heart and home to these animals, you are giving them a second chance in life. As a foster parent, all you need to give is shelter, love, time and a nurturing environment. We take care of the rest.
The Foster A Pet Program is not only rewarding, but it's a great way to care for an animal without the long term commitment of ownership. We offer many foster options and you will always have the opportunity to meet the rescued dog prior to foster placement. We tailor our program to meet the specific needs of your schedule and living environment. You are never obligated to foster a pet.
If you are considering fostering a rescued pet, please take a moment to read our Foster FAQ for information on our program. Submit completed application using form provided below or email to email@example.com.

Cooper's Chance Community Team
An easy, but effective way to help our rescued pets find homes is through community outreach using printed flyers and social media. Create an "adopt me", "foster me" or "sponsor me" flyer of your favorite rescued pet and post them at local businesses with community boards such as coffee shops or pets stores. Share our adoptable pets on your social media pages and tag Cooper's Chance for a shout out! Reach out to your community and help save a life!
Submit completed application to email@example.com. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you within 48 hours to discuss volunteer opportunities and foster options available. Thank you for opening your heart to a rescued pet!
Foster A Pet
This is our most popular foster program, and offers a variety of placement options. Most of our animals are rescued from a county shelter and just need a quiet, clean, safe place to heal before adoption. We can match you with a dog that is suited for your home, such as good with cats, other dogs or kids.
Foster A Puppy
Puppies are a fun, short term option for a family looking to have pet interaction without the long term commitment. You can choose which puppy care stage you would like to foster beginning with newborn to 6 months. Cooper's Chance can supply you with items needed to care for a puppy.

Support our mission in your community
Our rescue runs solely on the time and efforts of our volunteers. Skilled, dedicated volunteers are needed every day to help us with a wide variety of tasks and needs, including fundraisers and community events. Volunteering with us is easy and not to mention, rewarding. All of our volunteers are dedicated, loyal individuals who know that our rescue is making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected animals.
Day Foster - Hiking with Hounds
Hiking With Hounds is our Day Foster program and provides animal lovers the opportunity to spend the day with a rescued pet without having to keep them overnight or provide additional time and care. We connect you with a foster dog in your area that is in need of some exercise and outdoor play. Why not borrow a rescued pet for your next hike, walk or run!
Foster A Senior
Perfect for people who work longer hours and live a slower paced life. Seniors (Ages 8 yrs and over) are past the puppy play stage and don't mind napping the day away while you are at work.
Second Chance Foster
Rescued pets in need of additional medical care and healing are first placed with a Medical Foster before they are available for adoption. Medical Fosters offer the additional care and time needed to help sick and injured animals heal. Many of these fosters are medical professionals, nurses and vet techs.
Helping paws needed...
Some of the volunteer positions within Cooper's Chance Animal Rescue require special training. Due to insurance reasons, not all volunteers will be allowed to handle animals. Special training and safety requirements are required when coming in contact with any of our animals.
Youth Volunteer and Scout Projects
Our Youth Volunteer Program is for everyone who is 14-17 years old. We also offer a Scouts Project Program in which we will work with a Scout Troop in completing a community project. Please contact us for additional information on projects currently available for completion. If you are interested in volunteering and want to help rescued animals, you may volunteer with the consent and permission of your parents or legal guardian. Please fill out and submit a volunteer application to be considered for our Youth Volunteer Program.
