BARK Rescue CA is a startup 501c3 foster-based animal rescue organization based in Fremont, CA. We do not have a facility to shelter the dogs so we rely 100% on foster parents. In addition to posting about the dogs that we will have up for adoptions or promoting fostering, we also want to raise awareness about various dog breeds and debunking negative stereotypes about them, as well as raising the community’s awareness about proper dog handling. 

We are looking for 1 – 2 bloggers to write at least 1 blog post per month per blogger about animal welfare topics, including about specific breeds. Ideally we’d like to have at least 2 blog posts per month. The blogger will also do research on the topics and list the sources of information at the end of each blog post. The time commitment depends on the topic.

    • Inclusive: Believe that all pets, regardless of gender and breeds, deserve an equal chance to be loved and cared for. 
  • The bandwidth to do at least 1 blog post per month (ideally 2 posts/month)
