Volunteering for RORR
Reach Out Rescue and Resources (RORR) has rescued over 1200 dogs (and now cats) since its start in August 2010. We could not do this without our dedicated volunteers! Volunteers are critical to our efforts to save the lives of these deserving dogs and cats.
You will find a number of opportunities that will allow you to be a part of our team with the flexibility to participate as your schedule allows. As a RORR volunteer we hope you will be an active participant in our efforts! Currently, RORR is in need of computer/website skills, kennel volunteers, administrative assistance and other assistance. If you have other ideas for volunteering, please share them with us!

Application Processing: Work with our team to help find the right adoptive family for our rescue dogs and cats. As a processor, you will screen potential adopters, making necessary phone calls and conducting background checks.
Home visits: Meet the potential adopter and ensure the home is safe and full of love for their new companion. The home visit is a good time to discuss the resources that are available online, including information on choosing the right food, vaccinations, training and helping the pet adjust to its new home.
Events: With RORR in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania we are sure to have an event near you! Come to events to help handle the dogs, meet and talk with potential adopters and spread the word about RORR!

Fundraising/marketing: Help us raise funds to keep us going! Many dogs and cats come to RORR with medical expenses that can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. Fundraising is vital to meeting our goal of saving dogs and cats. Volunteers with grant writing experience (or willing to learn!), developing marketing material and public relations background is a plus!
Social Media: Help spread the word about RORR by using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media outlets.
