HARTT is committed to helping to bring to safety dogs who are stray, lost, or living on their own without a regular caregiver and who cannot easily be handled or captured through ordinary means. Through our equipment, technology and expertise we bring these animals to safety and partner with other rescue organizations to prepare them for life in a loving home.
HARTT (Humane Animal Rescue and Trapping Team) is seeking a highly computer-literate volunteer to help with recordkeeping and administration for our organization. Responsibilities will include cataloging requests for help with stray dogs who need our assistance, contacting volunteer field trappers to help, maintaining a database of all animals assisted by HARTT, maintaining virtual files and records, tracking active cases and posting on social media, creating flyers and event materials, entering donations and send donation acknowledgements, and other similar responsibilities.
This volunteer role can be performed virtually. The ideal candidate will be a heavy user of technology; be proficient in the use of Facebook; have experience with database entry; be articulate, well-spoken and have strong writing skills, as well as an attention to detail; have comfort using Google maps; be learning-agile with new technology; and, most importantly, have a passion for helping animals in distress.
Must be willing to accompany field trappers on several active rescue cases as part of the orientation process and to become familiar with our work. Should be highly responsive to texts and emails on most days. This role will allow us to track our cases, provide information to supporters on the number of lives saved, and allow us to efficiently record all information related to our animal rescues.
Estimated number of hours per week: 3-5
