CAAWS is run solely by unpaid volunteers and is governed by a Board of Directors. Phone volunteers can work from home, from work or from the CAAWS building. We rotate phone shifts one week per month. During your rotation , you would call into the answering machine service several times that week to check messages. You will be trained on how to answer easy questions so that you are able to call the person back and talk to them yourself. We will also provide you with a list of whom to forward the calls to when the questions more involved. This is a great way to help us help the public and is especially great for people who love animals but who are unable to handle them directly (because of allergies, location, etc.).
PLEASE include a phone number AND e-mail address where we can reach you. If you would like to find out more about our organization please visit our website at www.caaws.org .
