The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Spay Me! clinic preforms spay/neuter and other procedures 3 days a week (mon-wed) and recovery volunteers are always needed. Recovery volunteer positions are available from 8am to 3 pm. A recovery volunteer assists in monitoring the animals as they recover (keeping them warm, monitoring their breathing); transfers animals back to their cages/kennels; cleans ears; trims nails; places e-collars; administers subcutaneous injections of fluids (if volunteer is comfortable doing so); reconstitutes vaccines and assists medical staff as needed. If you like hands on experience working with animals or interested in the veterinary field, this is a terrific opportunity. Come join our volunteer team and make a difference! Interested persons should submit a volunteer application via our website www.spayme.com. Thank you!
