Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Dirk's Fund Golden Retriever Rescue is a no-kill organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and successful placement of homeless dogs of all ages. Through the care of a dedicated team of volunteers and the generous donations of our supporters in the community, we are able to provide all the necessary treatments and training to each and every dog that enters our rescue. The combination of all of these factors allows us to provide happy endings and "forever" homes to hundreds of dogs each year.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations of money and/or land are tax deductible
We are ALL volunteers - we have NO payroll.
All of the dogs that enter our rescue are given a comprehensive physical examination and veterinary assessment and all the necessary shots. They are spayed/neutered, tested/treated for heartworms, microchipped and groomed. We conduct home visits of potential "forever" families to make the perfect match. We require that all of our "forever" families sign an adoption agreement. The agreement states that in the event their circumstances change and proper care for the dog is no longer possible, or the dog was not a proper fit for their family, they return the dog to us. We will work to find a new home for the dog and a new dog for their family, if need be, no questions asked.
The good news is that with care, rehabilitation and skillful placement, Dirk's Fund makes it possible for our "furry" clients to regain a sense of trust in the world, and for individuals and families alike to add loving members to their families knowing, without a doubt, they are the perfect animal.
Since Dirk's Fund began over 20 years ago, we have rehabilitated and rescued thousands of dogs. There is no better rescue than Dirk's Fund. No one does more with a buck than we do. We have NO PAID STAFF MEMBERS. A group of very committed volunteers makes it all happen every hour of every day, every day of every year.
