The need for drivers (all legs) and overnighters (either in Nashville, TN or Champaign, IL) is great! The number of requests we receive for transporting our dogs is overwhelming! The number of dogs we can put on our weekly transports is completely driven by the number of volunteers we have available on a given week. Please consider becoming a Mobile Mutts Volunteer by completing our New Volunteer App. After your application is approved, you pick the weekend you want to help us save precious lives!
Mobile Mutts generally begins all transport from one of two locations, either from various points in Georgia, (always a Friday departure) or Nashville, Tennessee (always a Saturday departure). Our times rarely vary from one Transport to the next giving our volunteers an opportunity to plan their weekends around our transport schedule.
For the safety and privacy of our volunteers, we do not publish our hand off locations or our volunteers contact information online. A final run sheet is emailed to all participants prior to transport..
Help At Events
From time to time we have events where volunteers are needed for things like set up, tear down or work a booth at an event. New volunteers for any upcoming events should also complete our volunteer application so that we can get you into our database (volunteer application is in left hand column of this page and it is also on our home page).
Other Ways To Help
If you want to help us save shelter dogs and cannot help by driving or overnighting, there are still many great ways to help! We will be adding a list of volunteer positions we are looking to fill and will post our volunteer needs here and on the homepage. Volunteers are always needed, just complete our New Volunteer App and let us know if you are interested in volunteering in ways besides being a transporter or an overnighter.
Donations are always needed to help with expenses such as gas money (for drivers who would not otherwise be able to drive), leashes, collars, dog food and crates. Donations are also needed for emergency vet care for rescue dogs in distress in our care. No amount is too small, every penny counts! If you do not have a paypal account, complete the email form (left hand column) and we will get back to you on how you can donate. You can also use the email form if you have a question or comment.

I Rescued A Human Today
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them. As she read my kennel card, I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.
