Volunteers Needed Help a big dog rescue in Bradenton, FL.

Help By Donating Help By Adopting

Behind any good rescue are the volunteers that make everyday operations run smoothly.

We always need volunteers to help save large dogs in Bradenton, FL.

At Forget-Me-Not Inc., we work with local shelters that are overcrowded to save dogs that are on death row. However, we cannot do it alone. We run on blood, sweat, and the numerous volunteers that spend their time helping in one way or another.

Volunteers are the force of life behind every rescue and what helps that rescue continue its mission: to remove dogs from being euthanized and place them in a loving home.

Do you have what it takes to volunteer? Yes!

Everyone does! Volunteering is done on your time, whether that is one hour a week or twenty hours a week. Any task you can help us with is one less task we have to try to accomplish on our own. Volunteering also gives people a sense of purpose while placing them into a community with like-minded people. Animal-loving, friendly faces, who are all working towards the same goal for these pups, constantly surround you.
