Event Coordinator or Event Support

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. To build our foster network, we’d like to start participating in local events to spread the word of our presence in the community so that we can build our foster network. 

We are looking for some volunteers who can, at a minimum, help out at these in-person events to set up our booth, man our booth, hand out flyers, accept donations, talk to people about our organization, and clean up. You’ll also get the opportunity to research and coordinate some of the events, if you’d like. The time commitment will depend on each event. 

Minimum Requirements: 

  • Since this role involves being involved in in-person events, you have to be Covid-19 vaccinated and boosted and wear a mask if needed. 
  • BARK Rescue CA’s core values: 
    • Passionate: Have passion in animal rescue/animal welfare
    • Open & Constructive: Able to share your opinions/questions/concerns in a way that builds up each other and the organization
    • Collaborative & Hands-On: See each other as partners, see other rescue organizations as partners not competition, communicative & can work well with others. 
    • Inclusive: Believe that all pets, regardless of gender and breeds, deserve an equal chance to be loved and cared for. 
  • Must be located in the Bay Area
  • (If you’d like to coordinate some of the events) Very organized & deadline-oriented

If you are interested, please answer the following questions in an email to volunteer@barkrescueca.org

  • How do you embody BARK Rescue CA’s core values? 
  • What is your weekly/monthly time commitment to BARK Rescue CA (ballpark)? 
  • If you’d like to coordinate some of the events, what is your event coordination experience? How do you stay organized?
  • Please give us a few availabilities within the next 1-2 weeks for a 45-minute conversation to learn more about you & to address any question you might have about the organization and/or the role.
