We Are Looking For A Few Good Men and Women

Coming Home Rescue, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is looking for men and women to volunteer for the dog rescue. A plethora of opportunities exist that can fit a variety of schedules. Whether it’s once a year or once a week, the group relies on the volunteers to help with everything from dog adoptions events to special events. Interested individuals wanting to learn more can contact Coming Home Rescued at 1-888-405-7221, email info@cominghomerescue.org or fill out a volunteer application online at www.cominghomerescue.org.

Volunteers are needed for the following areas:

Grant Writer
Coming Home Rescue relies on the generous donations of the community to rescue dogs and provide them with medical care. The group needs a skilled grant writer to help with corporate donations. Note: this could be done from anywhere in the United States.

Dog Adoption Events
Nearly every Saturday, Coming Home Rescue hosts adoption events from 11am-3pm in various counties including Morris, Passaic and Essex. Volunteers are need for one to four hours to help with set up and take down, handing out brochures, talking to potential adopters and interacting with the dogs.

Transport
Coming Home Rescue has a van that transports dogs to the adoption events. Drivers are needed to transport to and from the event. These two jobs are usually split between two people. Must have valid driver’s license and be able to get dogs in and out of crates.

Fosters
Fosters provide a loving, caring home to a dog until they find their permanent home. Coming Home Rescue does not have a shelter so it relies on fosters to take care of the dogs. The average length of time a dog is fostered in a home is about three weeks. Coming Home Rescue provides fosters with all the necessities including a crate, collar, an identification tag, food and toys. Fosters do not pay for any visits to the vet, medical care or medication.

Companion Visits
If enough fosters are not available, we will house dogs in one of three different boarding facilities. While the boarding staff will take care of feeding, watering and other daily needs, it’s always beneficial to have someone who will go the boarding facility to walk and exercise our dogs. Dogs also thrive when they are taken out for a spa day, hiking, park walking or for a few hours in a home.

Special Events 
There are a number of different events that go on throughout the year including the annual Tricky Tray and Dog Halloween parade. Several volunteers are needed in this area. Coming Home Rescue needs someone in the Rockaway area that is available to apply for permits as well as individuals that would like to spearhead the efforts of special events including finding venues.

We have started a new social campaign called “This Is What It Is Like To Volunteer For A Dog Rescue.” Interested individuals can follow this campaign on the following social media sites.
