Become a Volunteer

GRRMF volunteers make a difference…every day…for every dog and for each other.

We are a diverse gathering of volunteers from many different walks of life. We love including new faces and talents with fresh ideas into our family of dedicated golden lovers.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

  • Knowing that you are helping to save precious goldens.
  • Getting to know other golden retriever lovers.
  • Doing fun things with your dog or family!
  • Making a difference in your community – being one of the “best”!

What are the areas of the GRRMF Village to match my passion? 

Read about the many teams who make up our  GRRMF Volunteer Village – Learn about each team’s role in our rescue and to gain an understanding of the skills and tools needed to feel comfortable supporting your interest in a volunteer role.

What are some open positions where I can help the most? 

We need you! 

What do I need to do to begin volunteering?

When you find an area of interest in our GRRMF Village or one of our many open positions, the first step is to fill out the GRRMF volunteer application below.  This online application should only take a few minutes to fill out.  Once we receive your application, our GRRMF Volunteer Coordinator will contact you.

After you receive my application, what happens next?  

When a volunteer application is received in our rescue, a “matching” process begins.  Each applicant receives a phone call from our coordinator to learn more about the areas of interest the potential volunteer has and where their happiness and passion in a skill exists which they want to share. We also gain an understanding if they want to learn a new skill which our rescue can support through on the job training. One of the most important topics is the time availability to make the commitment to support a volunteer role ensuring the critical life balance of their family, work and daily life needs can continue to be met.  Considering all these factors, our coordinator discusses the various roles in rescue with the applicant to find one which they feel they would like to do. They are then “matched” with the team coordinator who will contact the new volunteer to answer any additional questions and bring the new volunteer on board. A very happy day for GRRMF!
