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.
You must be at least 18 years old to volunteer at Nassau Humane Society Dog Park. While volunteering at the Dog Park is not working directly at the shelter or with shelter animals, the proceeds from the entry fees collected at the park go to keeping our shelter running. Your work here then becomes an indirect contribution and very much appreciated. Responsibilities are divided between inside and outside. Shift hours vary according to season.
Answer the phone, take new applications along with payment via check, credit card or cash. Talk to people about memberships and help straighten up inside.
Keep watch over the play areas to make sure things stay tidy. Fill up water bowls, empty the poo pails, skim leaves from the pool, clean the pool filter, answer questions from members, and watch to make sure all dogs get along.
