  • 11 people are interested
Image_201808301041

Animal Help Now needs a dedicated animal lover/respecter to manage its social media presence (Facebook and Insta and maybe Twitter) for at least the next six months. The position requires four hours a week and benefits significantly from more.

This is low-hanging fruit for any social media professional who wants to add impact to their portfolio or to help save animal lives, and it's ideal for someone who wants to do both.

Messaging is clearly defined. It focuses on the organization's established Animal Help Now app (see www.AHNow.org) and its new Pet Help and Rescue app (www.PHaR.org), a neighbors-based approach to giving our animal companions their best chance of surviving when disasters strike.

Animal Help Now is an animal rights organization. Vegans and animal rights advocates are encouraged to apply.

This is a learning opportunity, as well, as the position works closely with upper management, including the organization's co-founder.

Requirements:

  • Social media expertise (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter preferred)
  • Expertise in or high familiarity with the language/culture of animal rights
  • Ability to operate independently (though with support)
  • Attention to detail
  • Proficiency in writing and editing
  • Weekly commitment of a minimum of four hours
  • Commitment to a minimum of six months of service

To Apply:

Mission Statement

Mission: Animal Help Now creates apps that help animals. Animal Help Now is a volunteer-driven organization. AHNow gives first priority to its volunteers when hiring paid positions. AHNow offers equal opportunities and embraces diversity by characteristics including race/ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation and ability.

Description

Animal Help Now (AHNow) creates apps that help animals. The org’s eponymous app provides a 911-type service for wildlife emergencies & conflicts. Each year in the U.S. billions of birds and other wild animals are killed or injured by cats & dogs, window strikes, etc. and hundreds of millions of animals are injured or killed by motor vehicles. This free app directs people who have encountered injured or distressed wildlife or are dealing with "nuisance" wildlife to the nearest, most appropriate help, 24/7. The first nationwide response system for wildlife emergencies, it provides instant access to more than 3700 wildlife helpers across the United States, including rehabilitators, rescues & hotlines, veterinarians who treat wildlife & others. AHNow provides expert guidance on how to handle domestic animal issues (lost, found, abuse, etc.).

In 2022, in the aftermath of the Marshall Fire (12/30/2021), which claimed an estimated 1,000 companion animal lives and destroyed Animal Help Now’s headquarters, the organization began development of a new app that people can use to quickly and effectively communicate with their neighbors when disasters threaten and strike. The app provides a dedicated communications channel specifically for pet rescue so people who are not home or who otherwise need help evacuating animals can quickly and easily request such help. PHaR gives pets and other dependent animals their best chance ever of surviving when disasters strike.
