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.
With the increase in animals being rescued, we have a dire need for more home visit coordinators. Home visit coordinators play an integral part in the adoption process of our animals. As a home visit coordinator, you will be asked to bring an animal to a home in order to assess if the family is a good fit for adoption. Home visit coordinators should be comfortable talking to people in an open and polite manner, conduct dog/people and dog/dog introductions, and visiting applicants' homes. After conducting the home visits, you will provide feedback to the Adoption Coordinator and Director of Adoptions on the home visit. Home visit coordinators must have access to a car and be able to complete two home visits per month.
