Volunteer with us!

We are ALWAYS looking for passionate people to join the Wagging Dog Team!  Contact us to learn more about our volunteer opportunities.  It takes a bunch of dedicated people to keep a small, busy dog rescue running.  Some volunteer work can even be done remotely.

Check out some of the many ways you can help!

IN THE FUR

Fundraising (also remote)

This is a nonstop job for any charity and particularly critical for a rescue like ours that takes in dogs with higher medical bills. We need people who can think outside of the box for ways to garner us some much needed donations; people who get things done, make things happen; Go Getters to get us some Barks! I mean, Bucks!! If you’d like to help with this very crucial need, please fill out a Volunteer Application and send it on over to volunteer@waggingdog.org.

Videography (also remote)

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then a video’s worth a billion. Nothing quite captures the joy and spirit of our dogs like a good video. If you have some quality equipment and/or video editing skills, we are desperate for your help to show potential adopters just how wonderful our dogs are! If you’d like to get started, fill out a Volunteer Application and send it to volunteer@waggingdog.org and indicate that you’ve got the makings of a star movie producer!

Dog Marketing and Publicity

We do a lot of our marketing online but we still like to cover our bases the old-fashioned way. We need fliers and brochures printed and posted and we always need people to tell their friends about us and our dogs in need of a foster or forever home. If you work at a coffee or sandwich shop, vet’s office, pet store, or visit these places, or if you know of any billboards in your area and are able to keep our fliers posted there, or local websites to list ads for free, email us at volunteer@waggingdog.org, send in your Volunteer App, and help us get our dogs out there!

FROM THE COUCH

Web Development and Design

Can you help make our site uber cool, modern, user-friendly, and secure while showcasing our recycled family members to their fullest? We need WordPress expertise to update our current site while we work towards a new and improved site. Quick! Send in your Volunteer App to volunteer@waggingdog.org so we can get started!!!

Facebook Design

Got some extra Facebook know-how? Have a FB developer account already and familiar with custom tabs and stuff? The only other thing we would need from you is a bit of your time to help us with our page 🙂 Email a Volunteer App to volunteer@waggingdog.org and let our coordinator know of your mad skills.

Graphic Design

In a big world of dog rescues and dogs to adopt, we want to make sure our pooches get the best possible chance at a loving forever home. If you’ve got an eye for design and are interested in making unique eye-catching Facebook cover photos, fliers, logos, t-shirt designs and other forms of media, we’d be grateful for your talents, time and expertise. Our Dogs will be pretty grateful too 🙂 We also have a simple need for someone who can edit photos of our pack, lightening up shadows, sharpening phone pics, cropping, and adding text/logo before we upload our dog pics for use. This work is best done in a fairly quick turnaround (few days vs. few weeks?), because we are always in dire need of new pics from our foster parents so we can spread the word about our Wagging Dogs. If you are artistically talented and have time to help us with any of these design needs, please send us a Volunteer Application to volunteer@waggingdog.org!!

Online Dog Marketing

In an online world even dog adoption must go digital. We at WDR maintain a robust online presence that involves a number of sites including Facebook, Petfinder, Craigslist, and more. If you would like to be involved in the everyday maintenance of these sites or if you have a favorite site you’d like to take charge of for WDR, send a Volunteer Application to volunteer@waggingdog.org so we can bring you on board right away!!
