Join us as an Adoption Counselor


Do you want a volunteer position that allows flexibility to help around your schedule?  Do you love Yorkies and are you committed to finding the best homes possible for our rescue dogs?  Do you have basic computer skills,  a smart phone and love to talk to people?  If you answered yes to these questions you might be perfect as an NCYR Adoption Counselor.

Adoption Counselor Description

This position reports to our Adoption Coordinator and involves screening potential applicants for one or two rescue dogs assigned to you.  

You will be responsible for working with our foster homes to learn as much as you can about your assigned pup, even meeting them and taking pictures.   With this knowledge you will review applications to find a perfect adoptive family for your assigned dog.

You should have good communication skills, be responsive, very positive and passionate about finding the best homes for our rescue pups.

Ideal candidates will have great people skills,  currently have or have previously owned Yorkies in the past, have fostered or have dog rescue experience.  Don't have all of these requirements but still think you would be perfect?  Let us know why.
