Volunteers are the lifeblood of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Every volunteer role is important in helping us save more dogs and find them loving forever homes.
“Besides love and sympathy, animals exhibit other qualities connected with the social instincts which in us would be called moral.” ― Charles Darwin

Key Roles of Volunteers:
Transportation: We are always in need of a helping hand with transporting our rescue dogs. This would include trips to the veterinarian, shelter, adopter’s home, boarding facilities and adoption events.
Application Processing: The rescue receives and processes adoption and foster applications every day of the week, so if you are good on the telephone, have at least basic computer skills, are reliable and readily available to help, this could be a great opportunity to become involved.
Fundraisers: The rescue is a non-profit organization and survives on donations; if you have prior fundraising experience or would like to help organize an event please specify below.
Handlers: If you are experienced with pit bulls and available to help by handling a dog at an event, this is another great way to get involved.
Adoption Events: If you are interested in assisting the rescue with organizing an adoption event, assisting at the event itself, help advertise for the event or putting up flyers it is a great help in finding the dogs homes.
Home Visits: We aim to find loving homes for our dogs all over the northeast. In order to make sure our dogs will lead a safe, happy life after adoption, we rely on volunteers to inspect potential adoption and foster homes. You would contact the applicant, set up an appointment for the home visit, make a visual inspection of the entire property and file an online report.
