Expectations of GSRRC Staff and Volunteers

Our workforce is made up of dedicated volunteers. We try to schedule tasks and hours of the volunteers according to the needs of the GSDs, the needs of the organization and the availability of the volunteers. 

For everyone’s protection, volunteers are trained in and must use the safe animal handling techniques taught in their volunteer orientation. 


For those tasks that have specific procedures, we expect our volunteers to adhere to these procedures unless a staff member directs them otherwise. Of course, if a volunteer has a better idea or a better way of doing things, we want to hear it!

Once volunteers know their work routines, we trust them to work with minimal supervision. We have confidence that our volunteers will follow through on their assignments without being policed. That being said, senior staff are always available to answer questions.

Our ultimate goal is that the GSDs are receiving the best possible care...it’s all about the dogs.
