TAP Logo

The Animal Pad all-breed dog rescue is searching for 2-3 experienced Grant Writers to join our Fundraising Team! We're looking for volunteers who have prior experience with grant research, writing, and editing, as well as technical writing experience and ideally some nonprofit management experience too. Anyone interested in this role should also be willing to learn about TAP's mission in order to be able to identify applicable funding opportunities. Volunteers should be able to dedicate at least 2 hours per week, and ideally could commit to submitting 1 large grant submission ($5,000 requests and above) every 2 months.
Volunteers without grant writing experience, but who possess strong writing skills and a willingness to learn will absolutely be a good fit as well!

As our rescue is funded and sustained entirely by donations, grant writers play a very crucial role to our organization and help bring in literal life-saving funds for our dogs! This is a fully remote volunteer role.

If this is something you would be interested in, please fill out a Volunteer Application on our website:

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. Founded in 2010, The Animal Pad is volunteer run and funded entirely by donations. 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.

If you're interested in any of our volunteer opportunities and getting involved in a cause bigger than any of us, please head over to our website and fill out a volunteer application online:
