Many people searching to adopt a rescue animal does so via the internet. If we can post gorgeous pictures, funny videos and compelling stories we increase an animal's chances of adoption. We always need volunteers to take photos and videos of our rescues to post on Petfinder, our website and in various media releases.
For simplicity we prefer that you bring your own camera/video camera and have a way to get the media to us via upload, email, etc. This volunteer activity can be accomplished on your schedule. Once we orient you at our shelter then you can set your own schedule, we always need assistance and you can come anytime between 8am - 6pm.
The primary requirement of this activity is patience and being comfortable handling animals. You need to be able to put a leash on a dog and safely take them back and forth to our "photo pen" and/or bring a friend to help you. If you are good at taking digital pictures of moving targets and enjoy taking short videos, this would be a great way to assist us in finding homes for our rescues.
To offer refuge, medical care, nourishment and an opportunity for a second chance for life to injured and abused animals. To foster a public sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward animals and protect them from cruelty, neglect, carelessness and ignorance. To promote responsible pet ownership through humane education. To enhance the quality of human life with animal companionship.
We are a no-kill, non-profit humane organization dedicated to rescuing the sick, injured, abused, abandoned and neglected animals of Fayette County.
