One of our search dogs.

About

Most of our volunteers are dog people! Not PR people. We are looking for a person(s) that loves to lead and manage public relations, special events and fund raising. You need to love dogs as our focus is training people and K9's for search and rescue primarily for Chester County and adjoining areas. You should be familiar with Chester County and want to give back to the community. Familiarity working with and obtaining corporate support as well as grant writing is desired. We are a 501(3)(c) non-profit.

Mostly, we are looking for a dedicated volunteer, with an outgoing and engaging personality who believes in our team and emergency preparedness for their community.

Should you be interested in field work, this volunteer opportunity could include being the Public Information Officer (PIO) for the team as well. When any resources are deployed, this would entail writing press releases, managing any on-site media resources and in general being the face of the organization.
