The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

The Dog Liberator is looking for special people to join our core group of volunteers.

Volunteering for any non-profit is not expected to be a forever thing.  You do what you can, when you can, and when life gets in the way and you don’t have the time to help anymore, it’s okay!  We appreciate whatever it is you can offer!

Your time will help us rescue more great dogs, and help us find funding resources for our Veterinary Care Fund.

Over the next few weeks, we will be identifying tasks that are easy to do but very important to our organization.  All of these jobs have been designed so that only a few minutes of your time will be needed.

 Most of these jobs can be done from your home and do not require any travel!  Experience is not necessary, but helpful.  We will train you!  While good writing skills are a plus, some of these jobs are simply copy/paste.

What’s in it for you?  If you’re a student, and you need to complete  Volunteer hours, we certainly can help you there!  Or if after completion of your task, you need a reference from us, we can help you there too!  The true reward is that you are helping us rescue abandoned dogs that deserve to have a great home.

Yard Crashers:  We have posted details about how we are trying to transform the dog’s yard into an awesome place for the dogs and an awesome adoption facility.  Please review the details by click on Yard Crashers if you can help!  We want to thank Joshua and Franz for their help last week laying new sod!

Grant Coordinators:  Filled by Andrea McEnulty and Mike Goldblatt – Andrea and Mike will comb the internet, identify grants that we qualify for, and provide us with the application due date.  We are not asking for a grant writer, just someone to help us along and make sure we’re on track!   This task will require approximately 2 hours a week at first, and then will be simply maintained on a monthly basis.

*SEO Editor:  Not Filled – While Drew has been a tremendous help, we still need someone to add SEO titles and tags to our posts on our blog.   This job can be completed on a monthly basis and should not consume more than one hour of your time.

HTML Guru:  Filled by Lisa Yttri who adopted Billy Ray –  Thank you Lisa!

*Transport Volunteers:  We want to thank Nathan and Jarrett for helping us transport our dogs to safety, but we always  need more transporters.  Some folks can help on weekends, some in the evenings, and some during the weekdays… If you have room in your car for a dog, and have some free time, please raise your hand!

We are  always looking for volunteer fosters, transporters, and photographers!  If you can help us in any way, please contact us at
