Special Events Coordinators Needed!

Milwaukee Pets Alive isn’t just another rescue. We are here to shape rescue. Join us as a Special Events Coordinator (part of our Special Events Team)! There’s never been a better time to volunteer with us if you are looking to be a part of something bigger than yourself - help us as we work towards building a sanctuary so we can serve even MORE special animals and make SE WI No Kill! This is a monumental undertaking and we are looking for TEAMMATES to make this vision a reality! Special Events are going to be hugely important to not only raise the funds necessary to care for the animals already in our program AND build a sanctuary, but also to reach more people in our community to help us do it!

Special Events Coordinators will plan and ensure the execution of special events/fundraising events that are important for increasing awareness about our organization, the population of special needs/considerations animals we serve, and the important work we are doing for the animals of Milwaukee and are integral to raising the funds necessary to support that work.

Special Events Coordinators will, under the direction of MPA's Special Events Lead, plan and execute special events/fundraising events throughout the year.

Each MPA Special Events Coordinator will be responsible for (and must be able to commit to) creating/planning/leading/executing/managing/marketing at least 1 special event per year and will also assist the other MPA Special Events Coordinators with the events that they are leading.

Take the lead of one of our annual events or use your imagination to create a new, fun event our supporters will want to attend and that will attract new people to come learn about our organization and engage them to be supporters themselves! Special events in the past have included happy hours, car washes, rummage sales, craft sales, etc.

Special Events Coordinators will also be a part of the committee to plan a major annual organizational event.

At the discretion of the Special Events Lead, the Special Events Coordinators may be asked to attend Special Events Team meetings from time to time to share ideas, plan, and coordinate with the rest of the Special Events Team (your teammates!) to let them know what you are working on so you all can function as a team!

Volunteer tasks are done around the volunteer’s own schedule - when it’s convenient for you - morning, day, or night - though some tasks will involve the occasional coordination of your schedule with the schedule of others (such as for meetings, phone calls, when collaborating with other team members, etc.).

Previous special events coordination experience not required - just passion, desire, and drive to create fun parties and things for our supporters to do while also helping the animals we serve!

We are looking for several volunteers to fill several Special Events Coordinator roles with MPA. The right individuals will strongly believe in our mission, vision, and core values and have a sincere interest in elevating our organization, extending our reach, and growing with us (so commitment and dedication are important).

We are an entirely volunteer-run rescue. Everything you see was created and accomplished by a volunteer! We have no employees, so all volunteers should be self-motivated, be a self-starter with initiative, drive, ambition, and are able to work independently. One of the general qualities we are looking for in any teammate in this rescue are those who are "Go-givers" - people who want to make a difference in the world and for others and know the greatest impact we make is usually not the work we are paid to do in our 9-5, but that what we choose to do because in our hearts, we want to make others' time on this planet easier and better! How our organization is structured requires that all volunteers be able to accept direction to produce cohesive messaging, vision, results, and practices consistent with that of the overall organization as a whole and then take that direction to lead in the execution of their piece of the organization. Individual must be able to follow through on their commitments. The Special Events Coordinator should be interested in planning parties, events, or just fun things to do and be in touch with what type of events would be fun, and engaging, for our supporters to attend so they do come out and support us at them (and so we draw in new supporters)! MPA is looking for a volunteer to fill this role who recognizes the importance of working on behalf of the special animals we serve and will work hard for them as they are counting on us to save their lives!

When every person does a little to make a difference, together, we make change. Reaching as many people as possible to let them know we’re here and the important work we are doing for an important population of animals that have no one else but us is directly proportionate to what we can achieve, and the number of animals we can save. The more volunteer help we have, the more animals we can help. It’s that simple. Will YOU help? If you want to help and can fulfill the needs we are looking for in a volunteer for this role, please email volunteer@milwaukeepetsalive.org or reply to this posting.

Please help us do more for the animals of this community! Thank you.

Milwaukee Pets Alive (MPA) is an all-volunteer, No Kill, 501c3 special needs and considerations rescue that focuses on saving those local animals that have been passed over by, would not be accepted into, or would be killed by other rescues and shelters because of their needs and considerations and would have no other option for life except for through our organization. These animals may be shy, scared, under-socialized, injured, aged, differently-abled, have medical needs, or need extra resources - all deserve the chance to be loved and cherished. And all deserve time, understanding, patience, and good, comprehensive veterinary care to help them get happy, healthy, and reach their highest potential. Their lives are important.

Our mission, through our work aforementioned and through comprehensive programs and resources to educate and help community members help the animals in their own lives (thereby preventing more animals from entering the shelter system), is to end the killing of homeless companion animals in southeast WI. The population we rescue comprises those that continue to die in the greatest numbers in our community.

Our vision is for southeast WI to be one of the safest communities in the United States for companion animals.

We couldn’t help these special animals of our community that we do if not for the wonderful people who volunteer their time and talents!

Are you ready to do more for the animals of YOUR community? Become a part of our team! Reach out to us today!
