Standby (on-call) Volunteers & Doggy Chefs Needed!

Save to Favorites

Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue

Max and Hazel

Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue is always in need of Standby Volunteers who can be on-call in case we have a last minute transportation need. It could be anything from taking a dog to the vet, to a new foster, getting medication or supplies to a dog or most importantly, being a dog's hero by giving her/him a "freedom ride" from a shelter where they may be euthanized.

If you can't be on-call for a full day, even a few hours helps a lot. We like to have a list of Standby Volunteers scheduled 2 weeks out. Do you have any time in the next 2 weeks that we could add you to this list? If you do, please let us know the days and time windows.

In addition to Standby Volunteers, we're also in need of doggy chefs! If you're able to cook for our dogs in your kitchen, we'll reimburse the food costs. Here are 2 recipes that we use:


Chicken and Rice Recipe

Ingredients:

2 Cups Plain white rice (sushi/long grain, basmati)

2 Pounds ground Chicken

2 Pounds ground Turkey

Small Bag of Frozen Organic Peas and Carrots

Substitutions:

If chicken is not available 4 Cups of Turkey in total is fine.

Can substitute extra lean beef for the chicken and/or turkey.

Instructions:

Cook rice in a pot, water should cover the rice 3 inches. Bring to Boil and stir.

Add meat/veggies in raw stir in well put on lid and simmer.

Simmer until water is absorbed.

Let cool and package in zip lock bags.

Ingredients:
2 Cups Plain white rice (sushi/long grain, basmati)
4 Pounds ground Beef*
Small Bag of Frozen Organic Peas and Carrots


* Use the leanest ground beef you can get (90% lean to 96% lean preferred)

Instructions:

Cook rice in a pot, water should cover the rice 3 inches. Bring to Boil and stir.

Add meat/veggies in raw stir in well put on lid and simmer.

Simmer until water is absorbed.

If you're able to be a doggy chef, please save the receipts and it would be perfect if you could drop the meals off to us at Petco (508 N. Doheny Dr., WEHO) on Saturday, May 2nd @ 1:00-2:00 pm so we can distribute to our fosters who are coming to pick-up supplies between 2:00pm-4:00pm.

Please reach out if you're able to help our pups!

About Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue

Mission Statement

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from various Los Angeles shelters the day they are to be euthanized. Our goal is to help provide animals with a second chance to a happy life and to help reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs.

Description

Once rescued, we place our dogs into loving foster homes while they await adoption. We do not keep dogs in kennels. Placing the dogs in foster homes is the first step to rehabilitation, as it allows us to thoroughly evaluate a dog's demeanor and needs, enabling us to make the perfect match of dog and permanent owner. We attribute our high rate of successful placement to our foster program. At Ace of Hearts, we do not discriminate against any breed, including those in the bully breed family. Additionally, Ace of Hearts is dedicated to educating the public on how to be responsible pet owners and on the importance of spaying and neutering. We believe the real solution to pet overpopulation is through spaying and neutering pets.
