Why We Volunteer

RAGOM thrives on the generosity and boundless energy of our volunteers across Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, and Western Wisconsin.

We are always looking for volunteers in these main areas:


Transport volunteers move incoming RAGOM dogs safely to their foster homes.


RAGOM foster families nurture our dogs until they are placed in their forever homes.

Home Visits

Meet with prospective adopters and evaluate their potential as loving forever homes.

Other Roles

Help RAGOM and our dogs by planning events, fundraising activities, and more.
