Or perhaps you would like to connect with our lovable dogs and puppies? In any case, you have come to the right place!

Immediate Campus Volunteer Needs

We currently have immediate openings on our California campus in San Rafael for the following mission-critical volunteer opportunities: 

  • Gift Shop assistance: Open to volunteers 18 years and older. Roles vary depending on your interest and skill set, ranging from fulfilling online store orders, stocking merchandise, conducting in-person sales transactions, and more! You'll interact with a variety of GDB clients, staff, and fellow volunteers. Join us for some retail therapy! 
  • Drivers: Open to volunteers 25 years and older, this role requires a regular drivers license and a background check. You will be providing our clients with transportation to and from our campus to one of the regional airports or train stations. Our clients come from across the U.S. and Canada, and our volunteer drivers are often the first welcoming faces they will meet from GDB as they arrive, or the last farewell as they head home. GDB provides the vehicle, gas, and tolls - there are no out-of-pocket expenses. Volunteer drivers need to be available Friday afternoon/evenings, and/or mid-day on Sunday. This volunteer opportunity will fuel your soul!
