I decided to volunteer with Airedale Rescue Group (ARG) after having my rescued Airedale, Rosie for one year. Rosie had been surrendered twice in her life and I was her final forever home. I wanted to give back to an organization that helped me find my wonderful friend. Volunteering with ARG allows me to help Airedales find new loving families. My volunteer role is intake, the first voice that surrendering families and busy shelters hear. Dogs come from families in stress from divorce to unexpected moves; to shelters with new puppies to very sick adult dogs. My reward is the first message I get from a new forever home upon receiving their dog. It can be a long journey.
