Southern States Rescued Rottweilers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, dedicated to saving the lives of Rottweilers throughout fourteen southern states of the U.S., including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. We could not fulfill that mission without the efforts of our supporters and hard working volunteers .


Becoming a volunteer for SSRR is very easy. Simply fill out our Volunteer Application and submit it.


Read on to find out more about HOW YOU CAN HELP US.

FOSTER HOMES - We are currently in desperate need of foster homes as more and more Rotties find their way into shelters. Foster care consists of temporarily housing a Rottweiler while providing for its basic needs such as food, water, shelter. SSRR provides medical care of the Rottweilers in our program, and our foster homes' out of pocket expenses are limited. We prefer that our foster homes keep their foster dogs indoors during their stay. Doing so helps the Rottweiler adjust to the common household noises and smells it will experience in its new home, and it also helps to further determine the personality of the Rottweiler and what type of home situation that it would do best in. We encourage crating the foster dog when not being supervised. Foster families must take a Basic Dog Obedience course within 30 days of becoming a foster family. This will allow the foster dog to have good manners when they go to their "forever home." To become a foster, please fill out a Foster Application.

HOME VISITS - We also need people to do home visits for us. A home visit is something that is required before an individual is allowed to adopt one of our Rottweilers. It consists of going to the home of a potential adopter, checking the dog’s proposed living conditions, asking questions outlined on our home visit form, and basically ensuring that the home is ready and properly equipped to handle the challenges and rewards of adding a new dog to their home. The Home Checks are the eyes and ears of SSRR. Performing the Home Check is what allows SSRR to place dogs in safe and secure homes. To become a home visit volunteer, please fill out our Home Visit Volunteer Sign-up form.

TRANSPORT - Transport help is of great demand in SSRR. Since we do not limit adopters by making them choose only from the dogs that are in their state of residence, we often need to arrange transport for an adopted Rottweiler to go from one state to another. Our volunteers will fill various 'legs' of the transport as they relay the dog across our coverage area from its current location to its new or adoptive home. Most legs range in size from 50 to 100 miles. Before you take a road trip with your family Check with SSRR to see if you can help transport a dog to their "Forever Home." To become a Volunteer Transport for SSRR, please fill out our Transporter Sign-Up .

PUBLIC EDUCATION - Since our purpose is not only to save Rottweilers but to educate those around us about this breed, we often reserve booth space at local dog events. We are always in need of volunteers to sit at these booths to pass out promotional material and to talk to passersby about Rottweiler rescue, the importance of spaying and neutering, and Rottweilers in general.

ADMINISTRATIVE AREAS There are other more administrative areas such as fundraising, advertising, secretarial services, correspondence, etc. where we often find ourselves lacking volunteers. If you can be of assistance in any of these areas we welcome you to volunteer to fill this niche.


Anyone who truly loves this breed can and should be involved in rescue!

It only takes a small portion of your time, and the rewards of doing so measure far beyond compare. If you feel this is the type of organization you'd like to be involved with and you live in one of the states we cover, please fill out our Volunteer Application .


SSRR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Your donation is tax deductible. All donations are used to further our rescue and educational efforts. Donations may be made to:
