Volunteer Application for Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue
Thank you for your interest in Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue, Inc. (YTNR)! We
are always looking for good individuals with a love for our breed to volunteer their time, skills and
talents to our efforts.
As an independent rescue system working in behalf of the Yorkshire Terrier breed, our volunteers work
together to transport rescues to either their "foster homes" or to their new adoptive homes, and/or to
foster them until they are ready for adoption. This may include actually rescuing them from shelters,
abuse/neglect situations and owners who no longer want them.
We realize some people are not in a position to foster but want to help in some way. We also need
people to sew, knit, crochet, provide artistic talents or bake items for our Country Store fund-raising
effort, as well as to provide such talents to prepare items for care packages that we provide our new
placement homes. And managing such a growing organization that is 100% volunteer run requires a
great deal of administrative work. And so, computer skills always come in handy.
If you feel you can help in any of these efforts then we ask that you complete the volunteer application
form. Please know that if you are interested in foster/transport aspect of volunteering, this process
often has to be completed very quickly. Thus, we need responsible persons available who we know will
strive to keep their focus on the safety, comfort and welfare of the Yorkie rescues being transported and
cared for in our homes. In realizing that not every person on this team can be available, sometimes at a
moments notice, all of the time, we do appreciate your volunteering for this very gratifying but time
As you move forward with the application please be sure to indicate whether you are interested in

based on what you’ve selected you will receive further instructions.

Through our unified teamwork and common desire to help these less fortunate Yorkies, we have been
and will continue to be able to provide them with additional years of loving, caring homes, no matter
what the distance. We look forward to working together with you as a dedicated rescue team member
in the future.
ATTENTION: Volunteers needed right away! We are in desperate need for Volunteers in Georgia (many dogs are put down daily
in this state due to the lack of Volunteers to help), California, Florida, Kansas, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. We need Volunteers in other
States as well, and all are welcome, however, the states listed above are in the greatest need.
All rescues will be up to date with their shots and in good health before any transport. If this is
not the case, you will be advised of this before you commit to transporting this dog. We will not
put your pets at risk.
All information you give is strictly confidential and will not be shared with other members without
Please know that if you volunteer to foster and/or transport, we will ask you to contribute $25.00 for
your major liability insurance coverage and YTNR's handbook materials and postage. This is a
non-refundable one time fee. We will also ask you to sign a foster agreement.
Further instructions on submitting these will follow after we receive your application.
Upon completion of your application process, you will be given a link to get into a restricted area on
our website for members only and you will be able to read and/or print our handbook which includes our
forms, have access to our computerized forms to be completed on your computer (we prefer that you use these
forms and type the information onto the forms and then e-mail them as attachments to the appropriate person)
as well as forms that you can print and handwrite the information in. All volunteers will also be added to
our member information and chat lists.
Thank you for taking the time to apply!
