May 4 2019 ARADV Volunteer Meeting

Greetings fellow adopters and friends of Airedale Rescue of the Delaware Valley!  With Spring around the corner and new leadership on board, we thought it would be a great time to have a rescue meeting and new volunteer meet & greet luncheon!  The date will be Saturday, May 4th from 11-2 at the home of our Treasurer, Dewey Yesner in  Glen Mills, PA.  This will be a human only event please.  We will have another event outdoors with our furry bosses invited soon.

Our concentrations for this meeting will be moving forward in rescue via technology, territory groups – “pods” and empowering our volunteers. In the spirit of technology, and to enable our remote teams such as our invaluable Western PA / Pittsburgh team, we will host the meeting via web conferencing on Zoom.  It’s free and very easy to sign up –

It’s been a bounty of activity so far this year with 4 intakes and 3 wonderful placements (one dog went back to his breeder per contract).  We are welcoming several new volunteers to the group, new foster homes and we hope to induct some folks who have been helping on transports and the like into full volunteer status.  There are positions available on the Board – Vice President, Assistant Treasurer and we are considering a few new positions based on talent (like Social Media Director).

Bringing your talent to the table of a volunteer organization becomes a passion.   We welcome YOU to join us in the next generation of Airedale Rescue of the Delaware Valley!!  Simply email Deb Ciancarelli at if you can attend either A) physically at the event or B) via Zoom.  Deb will send out another email detailing the web conferencing, times, help, testing, etc.

After the meeting business we will be serving lunch and will spend time meeting new friends and “talking Airedale” — as if we could help ourselves!   PLUS – everyone attending in person at Dewey’s will receive some high quality samples of Freshpet!  We are scheduled to receive an assortment of Freshpet’s newest product offering “Homestyle Creations” with a choice of chicken or beef patties paired with a side of ‘healthy mixers’ of fruits and veggies, with or without grains.  Knowing the refined palates of the rescued Airedales, Freshpet would like our dogs’ feedback!  Please visit the Freshpet website to learn about this new line of nutrition.    Just a little ‘swag’ for attending – bring a cooler for your product!
