LA Area! In Need of Standby/Emergency Volunteers and Fosters! Cuddle with a dog today

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Ace of Hearts

QUICK OVERVIEW
We are in very URGENT need of standby volunteers (and event volunteers) so if you care about helping our pups please jump in to help and/or share this email with 5 friends in the Los Angeles area that may be able to pitch in and help volunteer.

MISSION
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 them only from shelters. The Ace of Hearts Foundation is in memory of "Ace", a wonderful American Bulldog who was rescued from death, and touched the lives of many! We don't discriminate against any breed.

IMPACT
Being a standby volunteer 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.

VOLUNTEER ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
A Standby Volunteer is someone 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.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
After sending in your schedule, we will check with you to confirm that you are able to help put on that day still and contact you if anything comes up. We try to let people know a few days in advance but sometimes we have emergencies pop up that very day! 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.

If you can answer yes to any of these questions below, please let us know!
Can you dedicate one day per week to be on standby to help us out?
Do your work days fluctuate and your availability will change?
Can you commit to being on standby after work?

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
