What we're about

Do you like dogs? Do you like meeting new people? Do you like exploring Los Angeles? Then we're a group for you! We'll have a wide array of activities (pack walks, wine tasting, restaurant nights, concerts, movies... the list goes on and on) all with the goal of meeting new people and talking about dogs! Some activities will be dog friendly and some will not, but all activities will be fun! You do not have to be a volunteer with Forte Animal Rescue (http://www.farescue.org/) to be part of this group, but if you're interested in volunteering we are more than happy to tell you all about working with our rescue dogs.

Forte Animal Rescue (http://www.farescue.org/) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to finding solutions for the problem of pet overpopulation through its educational activities, animal adoption efforts, and outreach program. Based in Marina del Rey, CA, Forte was established in 2003. To date, the organization has saved the lives of more than 1,100 dogs.

Forte Animal Rescue Volunteer Orientation

Needs a location

Attention all dog lovers! If you’re interested in volunteering with an animal rescue organization, please consider Forte Animal Rescue, a 100% volunteer group. We need volunteers to help with our weekly adoption event, dog walking and dog transportation. We also need fosters for our dogs, so they don’t have to stay in a kennel until they’re adopted. We’re also looking for an experienced Grant Writer and a Videographer who can video and post our dogs on social media. And, of course, we're always looking for fresh fundraising ideas, too. Our volunteers are asked to attend an orientation on the west side of LA before they can volunteer with us. Orientations are held the second Saturday of each month from 12 to 4pm. If you think you’d be interested in helping us, please send an email to [masked] for the application form and more details. You will also need a photocopy of your driver's license or other government issued identification. http://farescue.org
