The Application Process

To become a volunteer with the Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue, please follow the following steps.
  1. Review our policies. Because our volunteers are representatives of RMSR, you must first be comfortable that you understand and agree with our policies. Please review a summary at Center Policies

  2. Fill in an application (available below), sign it and mail it to us at:
    Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue
    Attn: Volunteer Applications
    PO Box 336563
    Greeley, CO 80633

  3. Help us schedule a telephone interview. When we receive your application, one of our volunteer interviewers will contact you via email, if applicable, to schedule a 30 minute telephone interview. The purpose of the interview is to ensure that you understand our policies, and to determine if you have any special interests, skills or hobbies that might help us with placement. Also, this gives you an opportunity to ask questions about RMSR.

  4. Keep in touch with us. Once you are approved, your information will be forwarded to the Volunteer Coordinator who will contact you about opportunities as they arise. But if you have questions or suggestions, please contact us! Also if you move, change email addresses or other personal information, it is vital that you contact us at cosrc@siameserescue.org with any new information.

Please remember that we are all volunteers. Please be patient with us. Your application is very important to us but we are entirely manned by volunteers who process applications in the evenings and on weekends and all of the steps required to approve new foster parents can often take weeks to complete.

The first step to volunteering with RMSR is to complete the Combined Volunteer Application. It is a three-part application, and you must be interviewed and approved as a general volunteer before you can be considered for the Foster program or Meezer Express. So fill out the Foster portion and Meezer Express portion of the application if you are interested!




Fostering
Becoming a foster parent is not an easy job, and requires a serious commitment of both your time and effort. It is also a very rewarding experience, as you provide a temporary home for a Siamese as well as participating in finding them a new one. All foster parents with Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue are subject to Colorado State rules and regulations governing animal rescue, and as a result, RMSR follows an in-depth screening process, which requires the following:
  1. A Volunteer Application on file. If you have not submitted a Volunteer Application and been interviewed/approved already, please complete that process first. (See Application Process above)
  2. The Foster Application section on the Combined Volunteer Application must be filled in and returned listing two personal references (in addition to your vet) that are not related to you.
  3. A Vet Reference Form must be completed by your veterinarian.
  4. A letter from your landlord approving you to have foster cats in your home if you rent or lease.
  5. A volunteer interview and a foster interview with one of our trained volunteers.
  6. A home visit.
Please mail all required forms and information to us at:
Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue
Attn: Volunteer Applications
PO Box 336563
Greeley, CO 80633

The typical turnaround time for a Foster to become approved may be up to one month.


Meezer Express
The Meezer Express volunteers are some of the most important volunteers we have in the program. Without them we couldn't get many of our Meezers to our new homes. If you would like to become a Meezer Express driver, please take the following steps:
  1. A Volunteer Application on file. If you have not submitted a Volunteer Application and been interviewed/approved already, please complete that process first. (See Application Process above)
  2. Please fill in the Meezer Express Volunteer portion of the Combined Volunteer Application and please ensure that you have read, agreed with and signed the Rules of the Road.
Please mail all required forms and information to us at:
