Our organization relies on volunteers to help us with various responsibilities that need to be done to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abandoned animals.

Although our main focus is to provide loving care to the animals that we rescue, we also care about our volunteers because without our volunteers, we can not fulfill our mission. To ensure a harmonious team, our volunteers embody the following core values:

Passionate– We have passion in animal rescue/animal welfare

Open & Constructive– We share our opinions/questions/concerns in a way that builds up each other and the organization

Collaborative & Hands-On– We see each other and other rescue organizations as partners not competition. To foster collaboration, we are communicative and keep each other in the loop.

Inclusive– We believe that all pets, regardless of gender and breeds, deserve an equal chance to be loved and cared for.  

If you feel that you embody the above core values and would like to give back to abandoned and/or abused dogs, please answer the following questions in your email to volunteering@barkrescueca.org :
