As a rescue group that does not have a physical location, we hold adoption events every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to help our animals get exposure and get adopted! We need dedicated volunteers to spend 5 - 8 hours per week (or more if you want!) with us and our adorable adoptable animals at our adoption events. Volunteers fill various roles - talking to the public about In Our Hands Rescue, answering questions about the adoption process and specific animals, and helping keep the animals' crates clean and presentable. The more events you volunteer at, the more you will learn, and the more responsiblity you will be able to take on. Our volunteers act as adoption counselors, dog walkers, kennel workers, company representatives, and so much more.
We are looking for outgoing, personable volunteers who are willing to jump right in and take initiative! We will give you a quick orientation on your first day, and from then on you will learn by doing and by asking questions! Our events are held in different locations every weekend, but always in Manhattan or Brooklyn, and occasionally Queens. Our event calendar is on our website about a month in advance. We ask for a commitment of one event per weekend (events are between 5 and 8 hours). The day can be flexible, and we will ask volunteers to sign up on a schedule on a weekly basis.
Please consider volunteering a small amount of time each week. You will make an immediate impact, and you will be able to see that impact directly on the smiling faces of the families who adopt at our events!
