Do you have experience caring for guinea pigs and a passion for helping them? Are you seeking to make a real difference by contributing your skills and knowledge to an organization that saves the lives of guinea pigs and other small animals abandoned in our community?

Since its inception in October 2003, Small Angels Rescue, Inc. has saved many guinea pigs from euthanasia, abuse, and abandonment. We are a young, growing organization that serves an area of desperate need in the community. We are an all-volunteer, registered 501(c) 3 nonprofit. To help us in our mission, we are seeking a Guinea Pig Coordinator / At-Large Board Member.

The Guinea Pig Coordinator will be part of a team that oversees all activities related to guinea pigs; you will have oversight over a small network of established foster homes. This role includes handling intakes/surrenders and adoptions, arranging veterinary care with an approved veterinarian, and various administrative tasks. You will liaise with other species’ Animal Coordinators and guinea pig team members for support and guidance. This position includes both hands on and administrative duties. Working knowledge of Excel and DropBox a plus.

As an At-Large Board Member, this volunteer will also be required to participate in monthly Board Meetings. (Bi-monthly in-person BOD meetings in Frederick, MD, and bi-monthly via teleconference.)

If you are ready to help make a tangible difference in the lives of guinea pigs, please email your resume or questions about this opportunity to Volunteer@SmallAngelsRescue.org. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
