Event Coordinator

Fundraising and adoption events are absolutely crucial to us at The Animal Pad all-breed dog rescue for a number of reasons - namely spreading the word about who we are and what we do, raising much needed funds, and of course helping our adoptable dogs meet their forever families!
We are looking for volunteers to join our amazing Events team as Event Coordinators - which currently is literally just our 2 incredible Events Directors who dedicate their lives to making event magic happen on the regular!

For this role, we are looking for volunteers who would be able to swing by our TAP HQ in La Mesa, pick up our event supplies and transport them to events, help to run the actual event itself, and transport supplies back to HQ after. It's important that these volunteers become familiar with HQ so they know where all the event supplies are stored, which of course we'll give everyone the full tour! As this is an in-person role, you must be able to attend events in/around the San Diego metro area. We are looking for volunteers who can commit to helping out at a minimum of 2 events per month. In most cases, volunteering for a TAP event is quite literally just hanging out and selling merch, talking TAP and teaching people about what we do, and cuddling/handling dogs! It is one of the best ways to directly make a difference for these deserving dogs and support our rescue efforts, all while kickin' it with some good people and some even better dogs!

As a side note - we would absolutely love it if these volunteers took pictures and videos during events they're running to post on TAP's social media outlets! We'd like to start making TikToks after each event that highlights the event fun, so anyone who's TikTok savvy would be perfect for that!

About The Animal Pad


4620 Avocado Blvd, La Mesa, CA 91941, US

Mission Statement

The Animal Pad is a nonprofit, all-breed dog rescue based in San Diego, CA that focuses on saving dogs from the streets of Mexico and high kill shelters. We get them the vet care they need, place them in foster homes and then find them loving forever families. Our mission is to form a safe space for dogs experiencing crisis and neglect, and to build a community of compassion through education, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption. Our community of volunteers and fosters strives to ensure that all dogs get a fighting chance, and believes that no case is too extreme to be helped - meaning our rescue is full of perfectly imperfect dogs who can’t wait to meet you! Being operated solely by volunteers and funded entirely by donations, none of what we do could be possible without our dedicated team!


Here at TAP, we give voice to the voiceless and our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find them the best homes possible.

The Animal Pad was founded in 2010 and we are 100% volunteer run and donation based. We rescue dogs primarily off the streets of Mexico, and provide them full medical care and a loving foster home to heal in before they head to their adoptive home. In addition to rescuing, we have an activism arm called TAPACT where we bring the community together to tackle issues that affect dogs in hopes to evoke permanent change.
