Donate your time and talents

Volunteers and fosters are the lifeblood of our organization.  Without their support we would not be able to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome as many animals as we do. 

Volunteering is taking action... Volunteering is changing lives

We hope you will consider joining For Otis Sake, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization since 2014, in its mission to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome at-risk dogs from overcrowded and under-funded rural animal control and shelter facilities across the US.  


For Otis Sake has seen tremendous growth over the past two years due in no small part to the hard work and dedication of its fosters, volunteers, adopters, donors and every other individual that stands behind and supports the organization.  In the past three years, over 300 pets have been rescued but there is still much work to be done.  As an all-volunteer organization, we need YOU! 


Be the voice for those that have none... until they all have a home! 

In a world full of people who couldn't care less, be someone who couldn't care more... Volunteer with For Otis Sake today.
