PO Box 411South Plainfield, NJ 07080


We are seeking a volunteer Social Media and Media Relations Coordinator to join Happy Paws Rescue in South Plainfield, NJ! Is this you?

You have a passion for animal welfare and know that media leverages an immense power to help homeless pets. You're a creative storyteller who can convince a potential adopter that this pet is "the one." You're also an adept writer and can spin a story 10 different ways to create engaging, actionable posts. You think in hashtags. When it comes to bringing attention to our cause, you already have great ideas to use the latest social media trends, such as Instagram Stories, Facebook Live, or this week's most popular meme, to find homes for deserving animals.

You have a solid sense of customer service best practices and are a wordsmith when respectfully addressing issues. You're a grammatical neat freak and a whizbang with social media analytics. You practice social listening in your sleep. You're comfortable pitching story ideas to media outlets and writing short pet profiles for publication. You're skilled in video editing and email marketing? Awesome, we'd love your help with that, too!

Ideally, you've managed social media brand pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others) in a professional setting. (We will provide some training to get you started with Happy Paws.) You have 10 hours a week to consistently dedicate to this position, including attending events in central NJ to shoot video and speak with volunteers and adopters in order to tell their stories.

If you're looking for a truly rewarding volunteer experience that gives a voice to voiceless animals, please email your resume and links to your social media work and similar writing samples (such as blog posts) to We look forward to hearing from you!
