Saving Grace always appreciates new volunteers!
Our greatest asset is our dedicated volunteers!
As a volunteer-powered non-profit organization, Saving Grace would not exist without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. The number of dogs we can save depends directly on the number of people we have helping us. We are always looking for new volunteers and we have a need for every type of talent!
There are many ways you can volunteer with Saving Grace. We hold volunteer orientations twice a month at the farm (see our calendar for the next orientation!)
Opportunities include but are not limited to:
Foster: Fostering Save Lives! (find out more)
Shift Volunteers: Many of our volunteers enjoy helping providing care for our dogs at the farm by working one of our shifts. We have two shifts a day 7 days a week, this includes cleaning kennels, rotating our groups from inside to out side, feeding and providing medication. New volunteers who choose to participate on shift attend orientation and two mentor sessions prior to signing up to work with the team.
Transporters: Saving Grace provides freedom rides for deserving NC dogs everyday. Transport needs vary in time and distance. Including local donation pick ups, vet and grooming appointments, shelter pick ups and transports for spay/neuter to prepare our dogs for adoption.
Laundry: We are extremely fortunate to have laundry services clean and sanitized by Cintas, this helps provide comfortable bedding for our dogs. We need help every week sorting and folding clean laundry. We also need volunteers willing to take home dog coats/sweaters and beds that can not go thru the commercial washers.
Paperwork: As with any business, dog rescue creates a great deal of very important paperwork, filing needs and data entry.
So much more! Grooming, Gardening, Training, walking, help with events, help with social media and marketing, it take one amazing village and there is a place for you here!
