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

Save to Favorites

Ace of Hearts

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.



Beef and Rice Recipe
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.
Let cool and package in zip lock bags.

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!

Mission Statement

We are a 501c-3 dog rescue foundation dedicated to rescuing dogs, the day they are to be euthanized, from various Los Angeles shelters and placing them in loving homes. We do NOT take dogs in ... we rescue only from shelters. The Ace of Hearts Foundation is in memory of "Ace", a wonderful American Bull dog who was rescued from death, and touched the lives of many! (Especially founder Kari Whitman!) We rescue all breeds...and don't discriminate against any!

Description

Hello!

Love dogs? Looking to help out and make some new friends along the way?

We need Standby Volunteers daily!

Emergency Volunteers/Stand By's

This may seem like the least helpful, but actually our stand-by's always save us & the dogs! We need you!

You give us the days and times you are available and we add you to a list. Then, if something comes up that day- you will be the first one we call. This helps us reach out to volunteers with availability that day instead of calling our entire volunteer list. If there is a day, half a day, or even a few hours you can volunteer to be placed on a "call in case of an emergency" list, let us know! This can be for many different tasks, and almost

always requires some driving. We try very hard to plan things in advance, but if there is a last minute opportunity to save a life, get a dog adopted, or a foster emergency, it helps to have a handful of people we reach out to first!

We are in desperate need of standby volunteers!

Can't help with this but still want to volunteer? We can always use extra hands:

-Emergency fosters

-Long term fosters

-Temp tests for dogs in shelters

-Transporters (taking dogs to appointments/park/foster)

-Event volunteers

-House check volunteers
