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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Well, if you're reading this post you're obviously looking for some way to volunteer SO, buckle up, because you've found THE place you should put your time into. Ruff Start Rescue is a foster home-based Non-Profit 501c3, No-Kill dog and cat rescue based in Central Minnesota. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats - heck, we've even rescued a chicken or two along the way! We work tirelessly to place these animals in new loving homes and would love to have YOU as a part of our team!
The Foster Coordinator helps with processing our applications for new fosters by completing application processing, doing background and reference checks, etc. Once the applications are finalized, Foster Coordinators complete a 1-hour orientation with new fosters - sharing with them important information and quick tips on how to help them most be successful as a Ruff Start foster. The Foster Coordinator role is unique in that it can be done with some aspects such as the training done in-person or, if you’d prefer - it can be done 100% remotely via phone and email. This is a potential foster’s first contact with Ruff Start and is a great way to help us save even more animals!
