GoldHeart is an all-volunteer organization. Without our wonderful volunteers, we would not be able to help these needy Goldens. More volunteers spread the work and allow us to help even more Goldens. We provide training for all of our volunteer positions. Experienced volunteers are always available to answer questions and provide advice. Please join us and enjoy the satisfaction of helping this beautiful and gentle breed. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator who will be happy to help you.

Volunteer Positions

Fostering – Foster families provide loving homes for very appreciative Golden Retrievers. All fostering expenses are covered by GoldHeart.

Fundraising – Researching and writing grant proposals to secure funds for operating costs; helping to organize raffles and other money-producing projects to support the GoldHeart budget.

Transportation – We need volunteers to transport dogs to their foster homes, to veterinary appointments, and to events.

Event Participation – We need volunteers to attend events to answer questions about GoldHeart, help sell merchandise that supports GoldHeart, and handle dogs we take to these events.

Advertising – We need volunteers to help us submit material to local newspapers that have agreed to advertise our dogs.

Home Visits – We need volunteers to visit the homes of potential adopters to ensure a home is suitable for one of our Goldens to live.

Dog Evaluations – We need volunteers to meet and evaluate Goldens before we accept them into GoldHeart. We do not accept dogs that show agression toward humans or other dogs.
