Woof, woof, woof - It's that time of the year again!
Volunteers Needed for the Last Golden Rescue Event of 2016!

December 3rd - 4th
December 10th - 11th
December 17th - 18th


Golden Rescue will once again have a booth at The Pickering Markets for three consecutive weekends. The Pickering Market is the largest indoor market of its kind in Canada, with over 500 vendors selling a wide range of unique merchandise at bargain prices. For more information about the Markets and how to get there, visit their website at

Our event will coincide with The Pickering Markets' annual Christmas Marketplace. What a great way to support Golden Rescue and do your holiday shopping at the same time!

This year, Golden Rescue is starting a new tradition at the Pickering Markets... The Holiday Best Dressed Competition! Golden's and their two-legged family members are welcome to dress up in their best (or worst) holiday fashion for their shift. The volunteer and Golden who receives the most votes will be the winner of some fantastic Golden Rescue swag! Each weekend of Pickering Markets gives another chance to win!

Want to be involved in this fun competition while supporting Golden Rescue?

We need volunteers for the following shifts on each day of the event!

8:45 am – 11:30 am
11:15 am – 2:30 pm
2:15 pm – 5:15 pm

Those on the opening and closing shifts will need to have the security staff unlock or lock the booth. The closing shift will also need to reconcile the cash and receipts (instructions will be provided).

If you'd like to volunteer for a shift, please email volunteer(at) with "Pickering Markets" in the subject line.

Please come out and help make this last event of the year a resounding success!
