Dog Handler: We often need reliable dog handlers that can show off our dogs at adoption and other events. Dog handlers should have completed the Dog Handler Training and should be able to make a commitment for the duration of the event. (Time Commitment: As Needed)
Profile Writer for dogs/puppies:We need talented writers & editors to join our media team in writing puppy/dog profiles. This is a crucial part of letting potential adopters know about our wonderful animals and helping to get them adopted! (Time Commitment: 1 -2 hours per week.)
Do you have room for a four-legged guest? We are actively seeking volunteers to foster dogs and save them from the over-crowded shelters. Every dog we get out of the pound saves a dog from being put down.
You provide: a temporary place to crash, water, exercise, and love. You receive: food and supplies, veterinary care, any support and guidance you need, endless love from your foster pet, and the satisfaction of helping an animal in need
We are always in need of help in the fundraising department. If you have experience as a fundraiser for non-profit organizations, we can use your help. If you would like to organize a fundraising event, we could use your help. Any and all ideas are welcome. We also need help with Flyer circulation announcing special events-posting them & keeping them current. We also like to put up flyers at veterinary clinics and pet stores featuring current adoptable dogs.
We are also looking for someone experienced in the grant writing area of fundraising. Currently, most of our funds are from private donations from caring individuals and our adoption fee donations. If you can help us in this area, we need you ASAP!
