We need volunteers!

If you love Dutch Shepherds and want to help those who are less fortunate, please consider becoming a member of our volunteer base. No effort is too small and no contribution is too little. We are open and seeking volunteers with a range of skills and abilities. Contact Trudy if you are interested in volunteering.

Foster Homes

We are in desperate need of foster homes! Our fosters are the core of our organization. Without them we could not exist! Foster homes provide a temporary home for the dogs we take in until those dogs find their permanent families. They help to prepare the dogs for life with a family; providing training when/where it's needed, and finding out each dog's individual needs. If you are interested in becoming a NADSR foster family, please fill out and submit an Pre-adoption application and edit to say "foster".

In order to be able to save as many needy Dutch Shepherds as we can, we need transportation help. When we think we have found a possible Dutch Shepherd that needs rescuing we need people to help transport the dog to a foster home or it's new home, and organized individuals who can help within transportation routes. If you are interested in helping with shelter transportation, please contact Trudy .

Public Education Coordinators

As part of our mission statement, NADSR is dedicated to providing public awareness materials/resources on proper and responsible pet ownership and specific information regarding the care of Dutch Shepherds. Part of this job entails distributing brochures/flyers about the breed to local shelters or humane societies. If you would like to volunteer your time to NADSR by helping in this area please contact Trudy .
