Are you looking for a high-impact volunteer opportunity with a low-time commitment?
Ruff Start Rescue offers a weekly surgery shuttle to help metro-area fosters get to the Ruff Start Rescue surgical suite in Princeton. A Ruff Start Rescue van is used for this shuttle and you will receive a list of the animals scheduled to be on the shuttle and their foster’s contact information. The morning driver can pick up the van at Ruff Start Rescue the day prior, any time between 10am-5pm. The day of, the morning driver arrives at the meet-up location in Golden Valley at 6am, with fosters arriving to load up between 6-6:30am. The driver will then leave at 6:30am to drive the animals to Ruff Start Rescue. The afternoon driver will arrive at Ruff Start Rescue at 3:45pm to help load up the kennels on the van and departs at 4pm for the drive back to Golden Valley. Fosters will pick up their animals between 5-5:30pm. The afternoon driver can either return the van that evening (you will receive information on where to return the keys) or keep the van overnight and return it the next day, whichever works best.
Time Commitment: The surgery shuttle generally runs on Thursdays. Drivers may cover as few or as many shifts as they would like.
