Get Involved...become a Happy HeartsVolunteer!

If you want to help save dogs why not volunteer for Happy Hearts German Shepherd Rescue and make a difference!  We all have different skills and talents, some have a lot of time, others just a few minutes.  There's a place for everyone to be of service.  We want you to have fun and help the dogs at the same time.  Volunteer Application

There are so many ways to participate.  Some involve interacting with the dogs and some don't even require you to leave home!  So choose something that you’ll really enjoy! Everything helps.  


If you live in Southern California and have room in your heart and your home please become a foster.  Without foster families we could not continue saving lives.

Transporting Dogs
We’re always in need of help transporting dogs from one location to another to and from vet visits, grooming appointments, foster homes, etc.  If you have a car and some free time, let us know and we’ll add you to our list of transporters!
Photographing & Videoing Dogs

We need good photos & videos for our Facebook page to keep donors engaged, and for our website and adoption sites in order to attract adopters.  Photographing dogs can be tricky so if you have a digital camera and a talent for getting great shots we need your help!

Walking Dogs
Visit some of our dogs in foster care or boarding and take them for a walk.  How fun is that?

Fund Raising
If you have fundraising or grant writing experience, we could definitely use your help!
Social Media Updates
Help keep our Facebook page updated and any other social media you can share Happy Hearts with.

​Home Checks
​Before a foster or an adopter is approved, we do a home check to ensure that our dog is going to a safe environment. We check to be sure the yard is securely fenced and that there are no hazards that could pose a risk.
