3R Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue based in Winters, CA. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need of a second chance. 3R saves dogs from rural poor under-sourced, over-crowded shelters with very high euthanasia rates. They are provided medical care, quality nutrition and the opportunity to relax and socialize in a home environment, enabling them to be 'good citizens’ in their new lives. Since our founding in 2012, 3R Rescue has saved the lives of over 480 animals. Help us continue!

3R Rescue is seeking a Volunteer Grant Writer to assist our Executive Director with grant applications for funding to support and expand programs such as our Waggin Trains (that save groups of 10-20 dogs each trip), spay/neuter clinics, public education and student internships.
