Animals First Rescue of the Carolinas
Foster Families
Our greatest need is for foster families to house our animals as we do not have a shelter. A foster family is given food and loaned a crate (for a dog) and given food, litter and a pan for a cat. The animal is fully vetted and any medications are also supplied by our rescue. We cannot rescue an animal unless a foster family is waiting and willing and the need in our area shelters is SO GREAT....and it is a perfect way for a family to experience having a pet without the longterm commitment
Volunteer Opportunities 
The gift of time is always appreciated by Animals First. Our volunteers work first hand with our animals to ensure they are taken care of and adopted by loving families. Volunteering with Animals First is a fun and rewarding experience. Our main volunteer needs are Foster Families, Cat Condos, and Dog Handlers. 

Cat Condos 
Animals First houses some of our available cats at the Cat Condos in Wesley Chapel PetsMart. We have found great success with the Cat Condos program, which increases the visibility of our cats. Volunteers take the cats out for playtime, clean habitats, and refill supplies. 
Dog Handlers
Dog handlers showcase our animals at adoption events and transport foster animals to veterinary appointments and adoption events.
