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.
Help our adoptable dogs find their forever homes by being a Dog Handler at our Adoption Shows! Fetching Tails needs handlers for each dog, someone who will not only hold the dog through the adoption show - but also champion them! To do so, volunteers need to talk to potential adopters about the dog's personality and work with the adoption coordinators.
Must be 16 yrs or older. Sign up occurs each week, so you can sign up based on your available Saturdays. Occasionally, we do have Sunday adoption events and special events where we need handlers also. We need volunteers who can commit to one or two times per month.
We regret that we cannot accomodate volunteer service hour requests.
