How can Rescue Rebuild help?
Greater Good Charities' Rescue Rebuild program is a shelter renovation program that recruits volunteers from all over the country to help animal shelters in need. We travel to selected shelters and spend one to two weeks working to complete general repairs and renovations. These projects are given as a renovation grant, meaning that there is no cost to the shelter. Greater Good Charities will raise funds to cover all of the costs of the project, including supplies, volunteer costs, and our team's travel and lodging costs. Should your shelter be chosen, you may contribute additional funding to the project to extend the budget and allow us to get even more projects completed! If you are an animal shelter that is wanting to start a domestic violence housing program, please fill out our domestic violence renovation application instead. DO NOT FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION UNLESS YOU ARE A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SHELTER/ORGANIZATION. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Below is a list of some of the projects our team can complete, but we can do much more!
• Outdoor Exercise Pens/ Play Yards (typically 25’ x 25’ or larger)
• Meet & Greet Areas (interior or exterior)
• Installation of New Kennels
• Concrete Related Projects
• Outdoor Cat Enclosures (Catios)
• Repair Existing Chain Link
• Shed Installation
• Pole Barn Installation (for storage or kennel placement)
• Painting (interior or exterior)
• Raised Dog Beds
• Shade Screen for Outdoor Pens (cloth, metal or wood)
• Coyote Rollers (prevents dogs from fence jumping)
• Dog & Cat Enrichment Items
• Creation of Photo Shoot Areas
Please fill out the following application, upload your pictures and 990 (if applicable, or a basic budget if you are applying for a municipal shelter) at the end of the application, and with a little luck, our Rescue Rebuild team may be coming to your shelter! If you have any questions regarding your application, please reach out to email@example.com.
Limitations: Rescue Rebuild can renovate private and municipal-run shelters. However, at this time, an organization must have a physical location owned by the organization. We are unable to build at locations that function as someone's residence or leased property unless there is an official Memorandum of Understanding stating that the organization may use said property for at least the next 10 years.
