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.
Make a difference in the lives of rescue dogs by helping at an adoption event!
Every Saturday at a Petco in Arvada our rescue holds adoption events from 12-3 to find homes for the dogs in our foster network. We are a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that rescues, cares for, spays/neuters, and re-homes puppies and adult dogs that find themselves in overcrowded kill-shelters.
With help from volunteers like YOU we are able to hold adoption events each weekend to find them wonderful forever homes!
We are looking for people who can help with any of the tasks below and more: * Setting up the event (pens, tables, large pens for adults, etc.) * Breaking down the event * Interviewing potential families * Walking adult dogs during the event and talking with the public about them or our rescue * Watching over puppy pens, making sure that everything is clean, they have water, and taking them to the interview pens to meet with families.
