We welcome all volunteers and it is not necessary that you be a member of CRUSA to volunteer your services, time and/or talents to help Cairns in need! Some jobs require hours, other just a few minutes a day. We are always looking for people who can:
Go to a local shelter to identify and photograph a dog that may be a Cairn
Go to a local shelter to pick up a Cairn that we have already identified from photos and are taking into CRUSA's rescue program
Perform a home visit for an approved home that is going to adopt one of our rescue Cairns to make sure the home is safe for the dog (forms and instructions will be provided by us)
Call the references of our applicants to move their applications along (we'll provide telephone cards)
Help us with administrative tasks, like data input
Craft an item that we can sell on eBay or on our CRUSA Store to raise funds, such as a quilt, a dog sweater, a dog bed, a cross-stitch design, a Cairn portrait or paint, etc.
Create one or more Cairn drawings/graphics to use on our website or on merchandise
Share their dog knowledge with the rest of us and answer questions others may have on topics such as training, health, etc. on our CRUSA working list on Yahoo Groups
These are just a few examples of how you can help. Please fill out our Volunteer Form and we'll contact you. You can also join CRUSA's working list by clicking on the link below. If you cannot volunteer, you can also make a tax-deductible donation to CRUSA!
