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

The Golden Life of Pal

The Golden Life of Pal

He lives in a world of darkness.  He is not familiar with the people around him, the language they speak, the smells from his new home or the touch of those who care for him.  He is a baby and he is blind.  Every day is a learning experience that is not always easy, not always successful, filled with uncertainty and doubt.  This is the story of Pal ~ a four-month old Golden Retriever puppy born into the most unfortunate of circumstances that most likely would have ended his short life had it not been for Golden Rescue and the love of his new, nothing-short-of-amazing, forever family.

A Message from Owen #2358

A Message from Owen #2358

Dear Danielle and Colin This past summer has been the best ever. Honestly! It seems like we explored endless new places to have fun and I got to do stuff like fish, swim, run, dig, ride on a jet ski, eat great food (glorious food!), and sleep soundly in a comfy bed. How can I thank you for my awesome life ~ for saving me from despair, for healing my broken spirit and for giving me hope with a second chance.…
