Tito's 5k volunteers
Photo Magnet from 2017 1st Ever Tito's 5k. Great group of volunteers!!

The Arrow Fund hosts a booth at many local festivals to raise awareness and funds for our organization. The booth typically consists of providing information about our cause, and "selling" our goods (gifts with donation) such as locally made pet treats, t-shirts, candles, magnets, etc. These events are typically outdoors, though a tent is provided. Sample events include: Beargrass Christian Church Farmer's Market, Gaslight Festival, Clifton Chili Cookoff, Highlands Fest, Irish Fest, and many more.

The dates and locations of the volunteer support needed will be based on the specific event.

Volunteers are needed to work the booth. This includes setup, breakdown, sharing information, networking, and sales. Volunteers must:

  • Be able to stand for the duration of their shift
  • Be able to lift totes (typically 25lbs or so) with goods used at the booth
  • Be good with people and animals
  • Be good with money
  • Be good with sales and connecting with others
  • Have their own transportation
  • Dependable - Cancellations and no-shows are extremely impactful
  • Be able to work outside for 4-5 hrs at a time (typically covered, but it can still be warm!)
In some cases, we also need transport of the tent and setup materials to and from the event location. This is not a requirement, but a vehicle big enough to do so can be helpful.

Training will be provided. New volunteers will always be paired with seasoned volunteers.

Our volunteers are very close to each other. We have a private Facebook page to share event info, but also to share our community with each other. We have special events for volunteers for engagement and thanks. It's a truly fun and rewarding experience!

Mission Statement

The Arrow Fund is a nonprofit that fights to rehabilitate the animal victims of torture and abuse and to bring awareness of and eliminate animal cruelty.

Description

The Arrow Fund is a Kentuckiana based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides medical treatment to animals who have been victims of extreme torture, abuse, or neglect. After securing care for these animals our focus extends to holding the abuser responsible for his or her actions. We strive to educate the public regarding the ongoing problem of animal cruelty and advocate strengthening our local, state, and national animal welfare laws.

We are a volunteer based organization led by a long-time animal rights volunteer, Rebecca Eaves, and overseen by an active Board of Directors. Neither Rebecca nor members of our Board are paid for their services. (See list of officers and board members below.)

When The Arrow Fund is contacted, and the case fits our criteria, we take legal possession of the animal and transport him or her to an appropriate medical facility to secure treatment. Following medical treatment, the animal recovers with a medical foster, where he or she is also given the chance to acclimate to living indoors, and be assessed/retrained in preparation for a permanent home. It usually takes an extended period of time for the animal to recover physically and emotionally, but we will do what it takes to get him or her there and find the right home. Once the animal is receiving treatment, The Arrow Fund works with the proper authorities to pursue prosecution of the abusers. We also work with the news media and legislators to keep our community informed.
