Volunteer for Rover Rescue
Rover Rescue could not save nearly as many dogs without the support of volunteers. If you have an interest in volunteering, we have opportunities in the following areas:
Dog walkers socialize, exercise and train our dogs that are currently boarded. These volunteers help prevent the dogs from becoming depressed and lethargic.
Foster parents provide temporary homes for our rescues and give us valuable information needed to find the right match. Please see our foster home page for more information.
Volunteers help transport dogs to and from adoption events, vet visits, shelter pick ups, and grooming appointments.
Dogs from animal shelters are often amazing escape artists. Volunteers can help point out escape routes and possible safety issues to potential adopters.
Mobile Adoption Events
Rover Rescue holds mobile adoptions every other Saturday at Centinela Feed in Redondo Beach. These adoptions are from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Just a few short hours of your time will help us save and care for more dogs. Helping out at these adoption events can include setup, clean up, soliciting donations, care and handling of the dogs, adoption counseling and more.
Assist the office staff with general duties, such as answering the phones, entering computer data, making follow-up phone calls, etc.
Use your talents or experience in non-profit fundraising to help us raise the funds necessary to save more lives. You can create your own fundraiser, such as a garage sale, car wash or bake sale, or you can assist us with one of our events.
Advertising and Promotion
Use your creativity to help promote Rover Rescue or any of our dogs. Additional assistance is needed stuffing newsletters, advertising mobile adoptions and other special events, as well as creating and distributing flyers.
Skilled grant writers can make all the difference in our ability to continue our life-saving work. If you are an experienced grant writer and are willing to dedicate your time and knowledge to our cause, we welcome your expertise.
Volunteer your special services and talents to Rover Rescue. We can use help with legal matters, contracts, printing, publishing, accounting, writing and editing.
If you are able to help in any of the above areas, please contact us or call (310) 379-0154.
