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.
