From the Heart-Volunteer

We Can't Do It Without You.

  • Are you looking for a job with no pay, but great fringe benefits?
  • Are a wagging tail and a wet kiss from someone who is truly glad to see you enough of a reward for a few hours of your time every week?
  • Is knowing what you are doing is saving lives and bringing happiness to animals and humans alike?
  • Do you need someone to talk to who won’t tell your secrets?
If so, From The Heart wants you – no experience necessary!

We are comprised exclusively of volunteers – we have no paid staff. Volunteers are the lifeline of our rescue organization and we LOVE our VOLUNTEERS! We can't wait to introduce you to our organization and the team that makes it all happen.

Please take a few minutes to read through the website. Learn our foster and adoption processes (no quizzes...we promise) and read the stories of the dogs whose lives have been changed through From The Heart Rescue. When you're ready, please fill out our VOLUNTEER APPLICATION below!
