Love animals? Like taking pictures? Want to make a meaningful impact on a shelter animal’s life?
If you answered yes to these questions, then we have an awesome and fun opportunity for you.
The Claremore Animal Shelter/Control in Claremore, OK needs additional photographers for the animals that come into their care.
Having good quality photos and descriptive write ups of the dogs and cats makes a significant impact on the adoptability of these animals.
In addition to taking photos, you also get to interact with the animals and learn about their personalities which assists in writing great biographies to go along with those fantastic pictures that you are going to take.
These pictures and biographies will then be used to update the shelter animal’s profile on Petfinder and Adopt-a-pet. (These are national adoption websites)
There is a great deal of satisfaction and joy that comes from knowing that you played a huge role in helping the dog or cat put their best "paw" forward and ultimately find their "furever" home!
Sound overwhelming...don’t worry...it isn’t. In fact, it is quite simple. We provide training and have handy forms and guides to help you every step of the way!
Although this opportunity is through One by One, it will require that a Claremore Animal Shelter/Control volunteer application be filled out as the photographers go onsite at the shelter. (We will supply the application if you are interested.)
To: 1) rescue abandoned, abused and injured animals, rehabilitate them, have them vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and find them loving permanent adoptive homes 2) hance our local community by offering programs or services involving animals that benefit the citizens of our community; and 3) increase public awareness of issues involving abandoned, abused and injured animals.
One by One Friends of Animals, Inc ("One by One") differs from other rescues by striving to save animals, mostly dogs, that other rescues in our local area are unable to take due to size, breed or health issues. We saw that medium and large breed dogs were underserved in our community and needed a lifeline as the typical shelter stay is often insufficient to provide these loving animals with the time needed to find them a forever home.
One by One is 100% volunteer run so that every dollar goes directly to the animals. There are no salaries paid and most administrative supplies are donated.
Since being formed in June 2014, One by One has been involved either directly or indirectly in saving 899 lives that would have otherwise been lost. We are extremely proud of these figures and would not have been able to achieve this goal without the support of our community, volunteers, rescue partners, and you!
We'll work with your schedule.
