The Rescue Crew focuses on the local most urgent animals in need that are facing imminent risk of euthanasia without rescue support. These animals are sitting in local impounds in shelters located within the Twin Cities metro area and beyond. We are looking for people who have the desire and ability to visit these locations on a regular basis to temperament test (we will provide you the tools and training necessary), and assist us in networking these urgent animals in hopes of finding them foster-based placement either with The Rescue Crew or other local foster-based rescue organizations.
Intake Coordinators may also assist in bringing the animals into the rescue by arranging for transport from the shelter to the rescue, arranging vetting while at the current shelter location, and lines up foster homes for these animals to be placed in when they arrive. This role can be one of the most rewarding, and crucial to the success of the animal getting out of a shelter alive, but can also be stressful and emotionally taxing. You will be working with various shelters and impounds, learning the processes for transferring animals to rescue and maintaining positive relationships with these crucial partners that we work with to help save the lives of companion animals at risk.
