There are several steps to applying for a dog with DIBS (and most rescues)

1. Application is received
2. Phone screen
3. Reference checks
4. Home visit
5. Approval
6. Adoption (Meet & Greet can happen any time after step 3 is complete)

We are looking for volunteers to complete step 4.

Application to be a DIBS Virtual home visit volunteer

We are looking to grow our team! Our expectations of screening volunteers is that you be proactive. Jump in when you are available to screen. Ensure completed screening is sent in immediately. Once you sign up for screening an applicant, you are their advocate to ensure their application is screened and submitted in a timely manner.

"*" indicates required fields

What is your comfort level for doing a VIRTUAL home visit?*
What applications/platforms would you be comfortable using?*
It is possible that the applicant won't be comfortable with your preference, so a DIBS screener would want to adopt to platform of their choice
