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.
Our mission is to rescue abandoned, homeless, abused, neglected, and otherwise unwanted dogs, cats and small companion animals, with the ultimate goal of finding each one a stable and loving forever home. We specialize in providing care for animals with medical needs and behavioral issues and transitioning them thoughtfully and safely into adoptive homes.
Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) is a nonprofit organization that depends on its core group of volunteers to promote and achieve our mission and make it possible to carry out our day-to-day operations. The Volunteer Coordinator will be responsible in helping to recruit, train, and manage volunteers and their related activities. This is an exciting, new opportunity with TCPR essential to helping us grow our volunteer program!
Position : Home Visit Volunteer Purpose : We want to ensure a happy, healthy, and safe home environment for animals fostered and adopted through TCPR. Home Visit Volunteers have an important role in helping foster families and adopters to envision life with a new pet in their home.

You will work cooperatively with the TCPR Dog and Cat Teams to schedule and conduct timely home visits prior to placing an animal into a new foster or potential forever home. You will help the family envision their home life, schedule, and expectations with a new pet by following a checklist and answer questions or provide resources to achieve this goal. You will be a representative of TCPR and should positively promote TCPR in the community by sharing our mission.
Home Visit Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and have reliable transportation.
Scheduling is flexible but must be coordinated with the availability of the foster/adopter.
Typical home visits last 30-45 minutes, plus travel time.
Home visits are required 2-3 times per week; your time commitment is flexible, but we request that you are available for at least 1 visit per week.
