Education & Advocacy Team

Golden Rescue has re-launched its educational arm (or should we say paw?) and we are looking for energetic, motivated, and Golden-loving folks to help us spread the word about the invaluable work of Rescue. Our plan is to bring awareness to kids ~ in schools, social clubs and surrounding communities. We believe that the youth of today can make a valuable contribution to the future of Rescue. If you are interested in joining an energetic team and taking part in our upcoming educational initiatives, please contact us.

Time commitment: 10 hours per month

Wishbone Lottery Team Members

The Wishbone Lottery is our major fundraiser of the year, with spectacular prizes, generating a lot of interest from our supporters and Golden lovers in general. We need volunteers to contact supporters/adopters/fosters to help us sell tickets. You would be assigned a list of names to contact (primarily via email) asking if they would be willing to sell tickets. Once sellers confirm their interest, you would provide them with support and track their progress with follow up calls/emails, answering questions, and sending more tickets as needed. After the lottery’s closing date, you would reconcile sales for your group. Ticket sales are going to run from November to August and there is more of a time commitment at the beginning with the lottery’s ‘lift off’.

Time commitment: 10-20 hours at the beginning with periodical follow-ups

Graphic Designers

Are you an experienced graphic designer looking for a rewarding volunteer role? Are you interested in creating dynamic, contemporary visuals for our readers to call them to action? We’re looking for a couple of graphic designers who understand our periodic need for speed and fast turnarounds (although not all assignments are time sensitive), have a flair for contemporary design, can create and distribute eblasts through Mailchimp, and can work with WordPress (the power behind our website). Writing our eblasts and other communication pieces is not a requirement right now – content/copy will be sent to you for design – but if you ever want to give writing a try, we’re all about bringing out your best! The primary purpose of this role is to create visuals for key communication pieces for general e-distribution and our website as an integral member of the Communications team. If you have the talent and the time, we would love to hear from you! 

Estimated time commitment: 10-20 hours/month
