Social Media: Spread the Word about Homeless Pups!

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


We're seeking tech-savvy volunteers to help us expand our network!

Members of our Social Media Team are responsible for frequently updating our social media pages so our adoptable dogs, fundraising efforts, foster/volunteer opportunities and events will be promoted. This includes uploading pictures, videos, and other information about our adoptable dogs and events regularly to multiple social media outlets, and assisting the Social Media and Marketing Coordinator as needed.

Some social media experience (beyond managing personal social media) preferred. HootSuite experience ideal. Please let us know if you have any experience with social media, marketing/communications, or with dogs/animal welfare specifically.

Rural Dog Rescue rescues dogs from high-kill shelters and finds them homes in the DMV area. We focus our efforts on shelters that euthanize over 70% of dogs or euthanize within 72 hours, with a special commitment to saving the "underdogs," animals that are often overlooked because of sickness, seniority, injury or their perceived breed. We are 100% volunteer-based and have placed upwards of 1,000 dogs in forever homes!
