As a foster based rescue our volunteer opportunities for working with animals closely are limited to fostering and transporting.
Fostering is taking in a dog or puppies for a short period of time until he/she gets adopted. We provide all needed supplies and food. You provide love care and transportation to and from events. If are are comfortable hosting a meet and greet in your home or on your property. You provide valuable information about the pets personality and needs to the adoption coordinators. (Typically limited to Rockland County but nearby can work as well if you are willing to transport back and forth.)
Transporting and picking up pets at NY area airports and delivering to Rockland foster homes. Pets are picked up curbside in soft carriers. You will be reimbursed for gas and tolls or provided with a tax receipt to write off.
Event volunteers, we have adoption events and need volunteers to speak to potential adopters about the process, sit with pups to keep them safe and calm, handle (walk around) adult dogs, clean, water, set up and break down.
Bio writers … our pets always need creative writers to help showcase their awesomeness.
Independent fund raisers … taking a fundraising event from start to finish. This could be as simple as obtaining permission from a retailer to collect monetary/food donations or as elaborate as organizing bingo/tricky tray/5k. Must be able to work independently.
Form writers, we have occasional need for forms and letters to be revamped or created. If you excel at writing, proofing and creating online documents we can use your expertise.
We have occasional opportunities to showcase adults needing homes. This entails picking a pet up at foster, and taking for a long walk in a heavily populated area but to build social skills but also for exposure to potential adopters. Must be friendly and willing to answer the same questions again and again. Pet promotion!!!
