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.
US Horse Welfare and Rescue at Nod Hill in Avon, CT seeks volunteers to help with everything from barn chores (mucking, feeding, watering, turn out and grooming of horses) to assisting with fundraising, event planning, marketing, social media, website, writing pamphlets and brochures or becoming ambassadors promoting horse welfare at events, fairs, horse shows, etc within 25 miles of our locale. Multiple committee positions are available also. There is something for everyone! At USHWR, if animals tug at you the horses will feed your soul. The advocacy, education, community outreach and supportive programs we offer horse owners are a critical part of what we do to help save America's horses from the little known, dirty business of the horse slaughter pipeline. With our eyes set on developing affiliates all around the country, arming them with the tools necessary to become effective ambassadors, lobbyists and advocates for America's horses, your involvement can help us reach that goal and forward our mission. If possible, please leave a cell number to expedite our communications or call Susan Mitchell at 860-593-4298.
