Volunteers are the backbone of every rescue group, and Healing Hearts Animal Rescue Group needs your help! Three to four million companion animals are euthanized in shelters every year. We can only save a small fraction of these animals, but in order to continue to do this, we need committed volunteers. Read below for some ways we can use your help.



We do not have a shelter facility, and all of our dogs are in loving foster homes until they find their forever homes. Fosters provide food, love, shelter, and safety, and Healing Hearts provides all veterinary care. If you are interested in fostering, please complete the Foster Application, and we will contact you.

Adoption Events

Our adoption events are held on the second Saturday of each month at Pet Supplies Plus in Centreville, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Event volunteers walk our dogs and talk to potential adopters.


Help transport dogs from their foster homes to and from our adoption events, and/or take dogs to veterinary appointments.

Home Visits

We require a pre-adoption home visit on each adopter. Home visit volunteers are trained to evaluate home environments, to ensure that our dogs are placed in safe, appropriate homes.

Other Ways

Are you a dog groomer or trainer? A grant writer? A social media guru? Can you plan fundraising events? If so, we can use you, too! There are so many ways to help. Please complete our Volunteer Application today, and we will contact you to talk about how you can channel your passion for helping animals!
