Won't you please help?



What we need: An organized, reliable, and passionate individual to serve on our Adoption Event team and help coordinator events in Cathedral Commons NW DC.

Qualifications/Requirements: No experience necessary (we will train you!), but experience managing a team is always helpful. You need to know how to inspire and motivate volunteers, while making them feel valued and keeping everyone safe. This requires about 3-4 hours of your time the week of the event (includes preparation in advance, set up and break down, as well as the 2 hour event).

What DC PAWS provides : We provide training as well as an Event Coordinator Handbook.

How does the process work: Each location is once a month, the week of your adoption event, you will identify volunteer needs and work with the Volunteer Coordinator and Foster Team Lead to secure volunteers and foster animals to attend the adoption event. This often includes lining up rides to and from the event for foster animals whose fosters are unable to attend the event. At the event, you will set up the table and speak with prospective adopters, fosters, and volunteers while maintaining a safe environment for all.

Our goal is to designate two leads for each event so we have a back-up leader.
