Phone Screen Support – Phone interviews with interested applicants applying to adopt or foster a dog from GRRMF.

Home Visit Support – In home / yard visits with interested applicants applying to adopt or foster a dog from GRRMF.

Weekday drivers – Safe drivers for weekday morning and afternoon schedules to support our major hubs:

  • East coast (St. Augustine to Palm Bay)
  • Central area (large geographic coverage of Orlando and surrounding communities)
  • Gainesville and surrounding communities
  • Tampa/St. Petersburg/ Brandon / Plant City / Lakeland communities

Long Haul drivers – Transporters willing to occasionally drive 100 miles or more each way to bring seniors or medical / special need dogs to their destination to minimize the number of car switches for the dog’s comfort and safety.

Media Team / Communications/Social Media:

Facebook Fan –  Have some available time to be a virtual volunteer to help save our retrievers? We are looking for volunteers to help our media team create content, schedule posts and respond to comments and messages on our Facebook page to engage with our GRRMF friends as a voice for our rescue. The required time can vary from an hour a week to an hour every day, depending on how much you want to do.

Photographers – Photos and videos, even from smart phones, are an awesome way to highlight our dogs and the activities of our rescue. Our Hearts of Gold and Media teams are looking for photographers available during the day on week days, particularly on the east coast of Florida around Melbourne.


Admin support – various teams. Critical factor is availability daily during the week days for phone calls, using google sheets for updates and email and texting critical / timely activities with vets, trainers and other volunteers caring for our dogs. If you have hours during each day and a passion to be a major contributor to help our dog care team, we would love your passion, time and talent to help our pups and peeps.

Hearts of Gold:

Handler Teams – Dogs and people interested in therapy work in the mid-Florida communites we serve.

Photography and media creation – knowledge of photography and use of Canva or other tools to crate photo galleries, slide shows and MP4  videos to highlight our team therapy work.

Complete your volunteer application today and our coordinator will be in touch with you ASAP.


Take a look at our retrievers available for adoption!

Each week we accept additional retrievers into our program who then receive their veterinary checkups and are moved to foster homes for evaluation and to complete any medical treatment they may need before being adopted.
