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.
Each weekend we host an adoption event at a local business, usually a pet store. We load up 15-30 animals in one van, and crates and other needed items in another van. We need assistance with the following tasks:
Van drivers, from shelter to event in morning; from event to shelter in afternoon
Unload supplies, setup crates, unload animals from van; Load all vans back again after event
Greet potential adopters and share information about our rescues
If you have one hour a day once a month that you can assist with an adoption it would make a significant difference. We take up to 30 animals in one day and the more volunteers that we have assisting the easier it is on everyone. Check out our event schedule and pick the location that is most convenient for you. Your assistance would truly be appreciated and will be rewarded by doggy kisses from our rescues!
