dog volunteerThe Great Dane Rescue of the Carolina’s depends largely on the efforts of our volunteers. It is people like you, who volunteer their time, energy, and knowledge, who make a major difference in the lives of these gentle giants. It is also enormously rewarding to save a Dane, and to see them placed in loving and caring homes to live happy lives.

We hope you’ll consider volunteering with us in some of the following areas:

  • Groomers
    • Bathing and grooming to keep the dogs clean and feeling fresh!
  • Interacting and exercising
    • Spending quality one on one time with the Danes to develop their love and trust for people
    • Keeping the Danes exercised and well-socialized with people and other animals is crucial for their health, and for finding their new forever homes.
    • Help the Danes learn and maintain doggy manners
  • Greeters
    • Introduce visitors to our Danes
    • Help acquaint visitors to our adoption process
  • Transportation
    • Transporting Danes to and from vet appointments
    • Transporting new Danes to GDRC’s facility
  • Fundraising events
    • Help out during fundraisers.
