Pawsitive Alliance

This is a virtual opportunity for those in the state of Washington or nearby areas.

Pawsitive Alliance, a volunteer driven tax-exempt nonprofit organization, is having an open call for Board Members, especially those with backgrounds in management, finance, veterinary services, working with low income/homeless communities, and animal care. As a Washington statewide organization, we welcome individuals who represent diverse backgrounds and geographic locations across the state. Founded in 2005, the mission of Pawsitive Alliance is to end the homelessness of cats and dogs across the state of Washington by increasing shelter adoptions, supporting spay and neuter programs, and helping to keep pets and people together.

Pawsitive Alliance’s major campaigns include large adoption events with 100-200 adoptable animals present and the "Why Not Me?" pets campaign which helps long term homeless animals find their forever homes. Our goal is to connect people and pets for the mutual benefit of both. Our other programs work to provide pet care items to homeless and extremely low income individuals, as well as provide spay/neuter surgeries in areas of the state with little access.

Pawsitive Alliance’s biggest strengths are marketing, organizing, fundraising, and collaborating. We work with over 50+ shelter partners, in addition to many other corporate, media, and nonprofit partners, including a full media partnership with KIRO- TV. Since 2005, we have helped over 8100 animals find homes and facilitated thousands of spay and neuter surgeries.

The Pawsitive Alliance Board is a group of committed individuals, investing their time and resources to support our mission. Ideal candidates are committed to our mission, able to represent the organization in the community, are ready to engage in fundraising and networking, and bring a well-rounded set of skills to a unique and hard-working team.‚Äč
