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


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Puddin is a Core Paws pup with our partner, Heath's Haven, in Idaho. She was hit by a car and paralyzed, requires her bladder to be expressed 3 times daily. She's a total love bug!


Are you great at raising money for a cause near and dear to your heart? Do you have a background in fundraising or grant writing and want to use it to help senior and special needs animals find forever homes? We are looking for a dedicated and passionate Fundraising Manager to join our movement for hard-to-place animals. This role is a management role, which includes overseeing our existing Fundraising team and our fundraising planning efforts.

We believe that every dog and cat, no matter their age, medical need, or behavioral issue, deserves a loving forever home. But they tend to be overlooked in shelters and rescues across the country. Core Paws showcases these special animals on a central website, to help them find their perfect family.
