Sugar Faces volunteers make a difference!

Sugar Faces Senior Dog Rescue relies on volunteers to keep our promise and to be the voice of senior rescue.  If you are in the Southern Maryland area, you can make a tremendous contribution to our rescue organization by volunteering. Please check out the volunteer opportunities below and let us know how you would like to help.

Volunteer opportunities

Sugar Faces volunteers must be at least 18 years old, dog-allergy-free, and have no fear of dogs.

Outreach Events

Do you love seniors and are you driven to share that love with the public? Outreach is a dynamic and fun way to spread our message to folks who may not necessarily know about our organization. No experience required, just a friendly demeanor, a passion for senior dogs, and a desire to help grow the Sugar Faces community of adopters, fosters, volunteers, and supporters. Outreach events occur at all different times/locations and may require a little travel.  We get invited to participate in nonprofit and business events throughout Southern Maryland, and we desperately need volunteers to take advantage of these opportunities!

Special Event Planning

Sugar Faces holds a number of special fundraising events throughout the year that fund approximately 90% of our annual budget.  We need volunteers to help in every stage of planning and conducting these special events.

Marketing & Public Relations - Online / Print / Merchandise / Media

If you have an interest and skill in social media networking, graphic design, production, web or app development, copywriting, photography, videography, or online marketing, Sugar Faces could use your talents for the creation of print/web marketing collateral (flyers, posters, ads, merchandise, web banners/mini-sites, dog profile descriptions, photos, videos), and social media networking (writing/posting to our Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat).

Adoption and Forever Foster Team

One of the most fulfilling experiences at Sugar Faces is rescuing a senior from a local shelter and placing him/her in an approved, loving home.  If you would like to help screen interested adopters and forever fosters, and work to match seniors in need, we would love to have you help us do this important work!
