We, as volunteers of the Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue (FFGDR), know you are our wonderful, potential FFGDR volunteers.
We know your daily life with work and family tends to take over at times and give you a very little free time to stop and take a breath. If we could have it our way, we’d provide you a very loving Great Dane laying or sitting next to you, to comfort you and to be a good companion to you.
Unfortunately, such loving Great Danes are needing your help first. They are in dire need of being surrendered, to be rescued from neglect, abuse and/or needing medical help.
We, at FFGDR, know every one of you out there has some type of talent, or degree, or an experience in something. Or, you are looking for an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience.
It might be something in which you use every day or maybe you never have at all, but you've been thinking about doing this.
FFGDR has been vastly growing (now serving the states of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and parts of Wisconsin) and we are in dire need of more volunteers.
We need someone to help with any of the following:
Fostering (Great Dane puppies and/or adults)
Transport (picking up and delivering Great Danes)
Seeking small and big grants
Educational Events (i.e. talking to school children, etc)
and other needs (i.e. websites, special fun events, etc)
While we need volunteers of any titles and in all four states, there is one thing we need the most: Foster Homes
Because we are sorely lacking in Foster Homes, it is heart-breaking that we’ve had no choice but to turn away new surrenders. If you would step in and provide your home to new Great Dane surrenders, please know that the average stay of foster dogs is about 3 weeks. Without a doubt, there will always be more incoming surrenders, waiting to be rescued.
Please, please, please become our foster parents! At the same time, you are certainly welcome to help us out in other area of interests within the FFGDR.
FFGDR volunteers are very flexible to your needs and wants.
