Foster Pet Transportation Provider

Save to Favorites

YWCA Northeast Kansas

YWCA Logo

What happens when a survivor of domestic violence decides to leave a dangerous situation, but cannot bring a pet into shelter? Leaving that pet with an abusive partner is not an option for many.

Thanks to a partnership with Hill's Pet Nutrition, the YWCA can now provide foster homes for these pets, allowing survivors to seek shelter confident that their furry family members are safe as well.

The Pet Transportation Provider will commit to being on call for a set 4 hour period each week. If called, you will meet the team and the pet parent at the YWCA's location, and transport that pet safely to a predetermined, secure location.

The perfect Pet Transportation volunteer will be comfortable and experienced handling companion animals, and will be compassionate, professional, and calm with survivors. You will understand how critical confidentiality is within this role. We will provide training to work with survivors and their pets.

You will use your own insured vehicle, and we will provide kennels, leashes, collars, and other supplies you might need to safely transport companion animals.

Background check, reference check, and training required.

Mission Statement

YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Description

The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women's organization in the world.

Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 106 countries, including 2.6 million members and participants in 300 local associations in the United States.

More important than the numbers, is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for women's rights and civil rights in Congress.

Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness. They come for a variety of reasons. But they come. And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives.
