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.
We need animal rescue transport coordinators to help organize rescue transports. So whether you are retired, not able to travel, or just looking for a way to save animals, we need you! Did you know that every 16 seconds in the U.S. an animal is euthanized due to overpopulation? Animal Rescues and Shelters do their best to move the animals around but need volunteers to transport the animals to their forever homes. Rescues and Shelters use Doobert.com to create their transport requests to get the animals where they need to go, but we need volunteer transport coordinators to help set up and manage the trip. You don’t even have to leave your home. All you need is a computer and a phone and we’ll train you how to do it.
How it works:
Let us know you can help by responding to this post!
We’ll connect you with one of our experienced transport coordinator volunteers to set up time to get you trained on the Doobert.com system.
When there’s a transport request, we’ll connect you with the requesting organization to help them effectively plan and manage their transport.
That’s it! And we’ll be here to support you all along the way. It's simple and we always need more volunteers (drivers, pilots, photographers, fosters, etc.) across the country, so share with your friends, family and co-workers and help us save an animal today!
