Mitchell Animal Rescue is seeking dependable people to check the City Pound one day per week. Specific tasks include gathering the following information (except for animals that cannot be handled):

  • Photograph the intake sheets,
  • Photograph the animal,
  • Species (dog, cat),
  • Breed,
  • Gender,
  • Whether neutered,
  • Declawed (cats only),
  • General health,
  • Personality/behavior,
  • Tags and collar,
  • Whether chipped.

Once the information is gathered, the volunteer will send out an email to the pound report distribution with a summary of the information and upload photos to the Mitchell Animal Rescue Facebook page.

We will train people who are willing to make and meet a commitment to do this task on a designated day every week. The estimated time requirement is about 2 hours each week but may be slightly more or less, depending on how many new additions are in the pound.

If interested, please fill out and submit a volunteer application at http://www.mitchellanimalrescue.org/volunteer-application.php
