DOG WALKER - A BRIDGE HOME - VENICE SHELTER
Quick Overview: PalsNPets is looking for a dog sitter for one of our sheltered residents at A Bridge Home-Venice Shelter in Venice Beach. This resident will be working on Fridays and needs a dog sitter to watch & play with her dog, Lilly. Can stop by once at noon to walk dog & play with dog for about 45 minutes. You will be helping a sheltered resident continue working and not worry about the dog that has saved her life.
Mission: PalsNPets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to unhoused pet owners and their pets, providing services specific to the needs of this group through partnerships with shelters. Pets are often the only thing an unhoused individual has to care about, and many shelters don't allow pets. Working with shelters to make them pet-friendly also allows us to work with these individuals who are often the most in need and often have a higher potential to build a better future...two lives at a time.
Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: PalsNPets is looking for a socially engaged pet lover to dog sit one of our resident's pet, a brown pit mx. Resident is employed on a Friday and needs help with a walk and play at noon for about 45min.
Compassion for unhoused individuals and an understanding that myriad life circumstances might lead someone to life on the streets.
Love of pets.
An easy and unflappable social demeanor. You will be dealing with people who are often very guarded so may act out or be uncommunicative; others are struggling with mental illness. Sense of humor and patience is a definite plus.
Ability to commit once per week Friday from 12pm-1pm
A resident of Venice Beach or an adjacent neighborhood is ideal.
