BARK Rescue CA is a foster-based, volunteer-run, non-profit animal rescue organization. Without fosters and adopters we cannot save the millions of abandoned dogs in the U.S. We are looking for dedicated volunteers to join our Foster & Adoption Coordination Team and perform one or more of the following responsibilities:

Foster & Adopter Recruitment:

  • Reach out to Foster and Adoption Applicants to schedule a virtual interview and virtual home check (all done in the same meeting).
  • Interview Foster & Adoption Applicants virtually (Zoom, Google Meet, or FaceTime)
  • Post-interview, discuss findings from the interview with BARK Rescue CA Founder to determine which dog(s) would be a good fit for the Foster or Adopter Applicant
  • Send Foster Agreement to newly-approved fosters, Foster-to-Adopt Agreement to newly-approved potential adopter, and Adoption Agreement to adopters who have completed the 30-day fostering period.
  • Send Foster Welcome Package to newly-approved fosters
  • Coordinate and facilitate in-person meet & greets with potential adopters
  • Send Adoption Welcome Package to approved adopters

  • Attend to Fosters' needs

Other Administrative Work :

  • Post and update adoption profiles on PetFinder and Adopt-A-Pet
  • Update our internal foster and adoption records

As the above responsibilities can be divided among multiple people, we are looking for several volunteers for this team. We understand that as a volunteer you have other responsibilities outside of our organization, so we will work with your schedule.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Passionate about animals, Reliable & Meet Deadlines : At BARK Rescue CA, we need volunteers who not only have passion in helping animals but are also reliable and get the work done in a timely manner

    • Social Media team to help promote our dogs, including updates on our dogs, foster needs, and adoption needs
    • Fundraising team to help raise the needed funds to cover dogs’ expenses
    • Finance team to reimburse fosters for reimbursable expemses.
    • For successful collaborations, we expect you to be communicative with other BARK current and potential volunteers. This means responding to messages within a reasonable time frame, updating anyone who needs to be updated, follow up with other volunteers in the team to ensure completion of work by the set deadlines, etc.
  • Dog care experience and skills so you can provide great advice to fosters and adopters when questions or concerns arise about the dog.
  • Organized & planful, especially if you would like to plan/organize the adoption events or coordinate transport
