South Bay Purebred Rescue is a small, but mighty, group of dedicated volunteers. We are a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit,
so we can help you fulfill community service hours. We welcome new members to help in any of these capacities:
Foster Home - Foster dogs until they're adopted; foster dogs on an occasional, temporary basis to allow
another foster home to go on vacation; take special needs dogs for medical rehab, bottle baby puppies, etc.
Sign up for the level of fostering that appeals to you.
Pet Fair Assistant - We have a pet fair from 12:00-3:00 on most Saturdays at Pet Club on Blossom Hill/Snell
in San Jose. Come help set up tables for the event; unload dogs and equipment from foster homes' vehicles;
help clean up and break down at the end of the event; learn how to screen adopters and process adoption
paperwork; take dogs on potty walks as needed; help socialize and snuggle puppies when we have them.
Transporter - We can use occasional help getting our dogs to and from the vet and the groomer. Current
needs are transport between foster homes in Morgan Hill (101/Tennant), South SJ (Santa Teresa/Bayliss),
and West SJ (85/De Anza Blvd) to one of two vets: Boulevard Pet Hospital on Winchester/Hamilton (Thursdays
only) or San Jose Animal Hospital. The greatest need is morning drop off, which is between 8:00 and 9:00.
Half an hour should be allotted to allow for paperwork or in case there is a line. Help with afternoon
pickup is also welcome. Drop off/pick up from any of the fosters to/from the groomer at Blossom Hill/Snell
in SJ is needed as well. Frequency is usually about twice a month.
Social Media - Help increase our Facebook page's presence by promoting our dogs for adoption, events, or
other items that benefit our group.
Grant Writing/Fundraising - Search for, track, and enroll us in opportunities such as Nickels for
Nonprofits, Silicon Valley Cares, and similar programs. This person (or people) would be responsible for
finding and managing small grant opportunities. Make sure we're enrolled on time, provide content so we can
promote said events on our website, social media and pet fairs.
Marketing - Are you good at desktop publishing/designing collateral? We need occasional small-scale
production of flyers and tabletop literature or pamphlets for our adoption events. We are open to ideas
for small flyers promoting a specific dog that might be getting overlooked, handouts for special adoption
events, advertising special donation or volunteer opportunities.
Please call 408-629-8293 or message us on Facebook if you're interested in any of these areas.
We look forward to meeting you!
