I'm a total dog lover and have past experience volunteering at animal shelters. Haven't done it for years but would love to get back into it again.
Tell us what volunteer roles you are interested in: working hands-on with dogs, working hands-on with cats, uploading videos, posting pet profiles online, adoption coordinating, or writing (pet descriptions or stories for our website).
Through our Shelter Support Program, we partner with local, high-intake shelters to give homeless pets the best chance possible of finding new homes. We advocate for over 160 shelter pets a month, and have a 96% success rate in getting these dogs and cats into safe and loving adoptive or foster homes.
It all starts with our "Glamour Shot Day," when we visit the shelter to photograph, video, and get to know the personalities of up to 80 dogs and cats. We work with dogs of all breeds, breed mixes, ages and sizes. We then post their information online, advocate for them, and help them find new homes. Watch a video of a typical "Glamour Shot" day here: http://youtu.be/3AC2k-nIvxo
We also hold adoption events to help rescued dogs who are still looking for a home of their own meet potential adopters.
If you love dogs and cats and would like to be a part of making their lives a little better, join us! We need volunteer dog handlers, photographers (*pre-approval required), video narrators, writers, adoption coordinators, and people who want to help by uploading videos to YouTube and posting pet profiles online.
However you'd like to contribute, let us know! Open your heart and meet other like-minded dog lovers who give a few hours of their time every month to get together and do some good for man's best friend. (A complete list of volunteer opportunities is available here.)
