Our organization could not exist without volunteers.  Not everyone is able to foster an animal, but we can still use you as a part of our organization!  As a volunteer, you help us with the animals in our rescue find their forever homes. Are you good at graphic design? Do you love taking photographs? How about interacting with people and animals? We need you! Whatever your strengths, Ruff Life Animal Rescue can put them to use.

Before an event, we will send an email with details and expectations of volunteers at that event.  If you're available to attend for the entire event, reply to the email.

Volunteer opportunities are constantly changing as we grow and develop new programs.  Below is a listing of current opportunities:

Adoption Events
Promote Ruff Life Animal Rescue's mission, adoptable dogs and recruit for volunteers, fosters, and adopters.

Special Events/Fundraising

Ruff Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue organization and relies solely on donations.  This committee assists in finding individual and business sponsors, researching and writing grants, and overseeing donor recognition.


As a Ruff Life foster, you will provide temporary care for dogs in your home until adoption.  Ruff Life Animal Rescue covers all vetting expenses and will provide a crate and dog food if needed.  If you would like to help save a pet's life, please fill out our Foster Application.
