Here’s how it works:
Pet owners call us for help, and leave their message in the appropriate mailbox. Working from home, a volunteer retrieves it, calls them back, and determines how to best help them and their pet. As a hotline volunteer, you would be aware of any special programs and pricing for spay/neuter services throughout the county. You would offer low cost vet referrals, information about vouchers or other specials, and financial aid from Pet Assistance when truly needed. You would keep simple records, such as log sheets of calls.
Pet Assistance Foundation has served the people and pets of Southern California since 1955. We were pioneers in the war against pet overpopulation, educating the public about spay and neuter, persuading veterinarians to offer low cost surgeries, and helping families in need obtain them. Our Spay/Neuter Hotline is the mainstay of our approach. Currently, we need one or two more volunteers for San Diego County.What we provide:
- Phone line
- Fax machine
What we need from you:
- An hour or two a week, after training
This position offers autonomy and the chance to make a definite difference for people and animals. Pet overpopulation is the root cause of so much suffering, and our hotline directly targets its cause. Phone volunteers tend to stay with us for a long time, enjoying the opportunity to be a humane presence in their communities. If you care about animals, possess good judgment and communication skills, and can spare a couple hours a week, we’d love to hear from you.
