Why I Volunteer

Bake Sale/Talk Table Coordinators (Marketing Team) Needed!

Milwaukee Pets Alive isn’t just another rescue. We are here to shape rescue. Join us as a Bake Sale/Talk Table Coordinator (part of our Marketing Team)! There’s never been a better time to volunteer with us if you are looking to be a part of something bigger than yourself - help us as we work towards building a sanctuary so we can serve even MORE special animals and make SE WI No Kill! This is a monumental undertaking and we are looking for TEAMMATES to make this vision a reality!

Community. It’s one of our core values. A pillar of Milwaukee Pets Alive. Social media is nice, but there has to be more than that. It may be how we learn about things, but it’s not where we make true connections. And many don’t use, or are ceasing to use social media. We miss out on reaching those people with our important work if everything is online. We’ve got to get face to face with people.

That’s where we can do more, and do better for our animals and the people that love them. We have a wealth and wide breadth of knowledge to share - and want to help others with it. We’ve been rescuing animals with special needs and considerations for almost a decade - animals that many turn from, but we run to. As such, we have experiences others don’t have and want to share what we’ve learned to help people with challenges they may be experiencing. We also believe in the adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Education, knowledge, and wisdom shared can go a long ways towards that end.

Face to face is also the way others can help us do better for those animals who have no one - the abused, neglected, and abandoned. The injured, the ill, the differently-abled. The shy, the scared, the under-socialized. And the un-socialized who should never enter the shelter system, but when they all-too-often do, today, they meet certain death. They would have no one...if they didn’t have MPA. We are doing what no one else does in our community (and will have the capability to do so much more with a sanctuary!) - filling a very important void.

We can help people help the animals that they love, and they can help us and the animals we serve when they learn about the important work we’re doing in our community. This starts with building relationships. All relationships start with a conversation.

We need a lot more active supporters, and there are so many people that need guidance with their own animals and those they share this world with (and helping people help their animals keeps animals out of the shelter system - it’s part of the No Kill Equation)! We want to regularly meet and talk with more of our community members! It can be hard to ask questions...and some feel shy just walking up to a table to seek information or see what’s going on, so we have the perfect solution: a combination bake sale/talk table! It’s our non-melty version of an ice cream social. Our current supporters LOVE baking for bake sales, and people can’t resist checking out the variety of homemade goodies - the perfect ice-breaker to create new supporters, and hear people’s stories opening a door to how we might be able to help them help their animals, too! It's baking with a purpose, y'all!

We’re looking for FOUR Bake Sale/Talk Table Coordinators as part of our Marketing Team. Each will be responsible for coordinating a Bake Sale/Talk Table with an interested host business every other month (6 a year), coordinating enough volunteers to bake for their sales and the drop off of their baked goods, setup, staffing the sale (taking payment for baked goods sold, greeting people, talking about the organization, etc.), and tear down of the sale. We’ll have experienced animal care volunteers present to answer questions from people that stop by the sale. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to learn from the best on animal care, behavior, and advocacy.

We were so excited about all the outreach we can accomplish in this role that we forgot to mention that these bake sales will also generate much needed donations to care for the special population of animals we serve as well as help fund the sanctuary we are working to build!

The coordination tasks are done around the volunteer’s own schedule - when it’s convenient for you - morning, day, or night - though some tasks will involve the occasional coordination of your schedule with the schedule of others (such as meetings or phone calls) and then you must be available to staff the Bake Sale/Talk Table you set up.

The right individuals will strongly believe in our mission, vision, and core values and have a sincere interest in elevating our organization, extending our reach, and growing with us (so commitment and dedication are important).

We are an entirely volunteer-run rescue. Everything you see was created and accomplished by a volunteer! We have no employees, so all volunteers should be self-motivated, be a self-starter with initiative, drive, ambition, and are able to work independently. How our organization is structured requires that all volunteers be able to accept direction to produce cohesive messaging, vision, results, and practices consistent with that of the overall organization as a whole and then take that direction to lead in the execution of their tasks. Individual must be able to follow through on their commitments. Bake Sale/Talk Table Coordinators should also be outgoing, personable, enthusiastic, and love people as this is an outreach role to reach and talk to people! MPA is looking for volunteers to fill this role who recognizes the importance of working on behalf of the special animals we serve and will work hard for them as they are counting on us to save their lives!

When every person does a little to make a difference, together, we make change. Reaching as many people as possible to let them know we’re here and the important work we are doing for an important population of animals that have no one else but us is directly proportionate to what we can achieve, and the number of animals we can save. The more volunteer help we have, the more animals we can help. It’s that simple. Will YOU help? If you want to help and can fulfill the needs we are looking for in a volunteer for this role, please email volunteer@milwaukeepetsalive.org or reply to this posting.

Please help us do more for the animals of this community! Thank you.

Milwaukee Pets Alive (MPA) is an all-volunteer, No Kill, 501c3 special needs and considerations rescue that focuses on saving those local animals that have been passed over by, would not be accepted into, or would be killed by other rescues and shelters because of their needs and considerations and would have no other option for life except for through our organization. These animals may be shy, scared, under-socialized, injured, aged, differently-abled, have medical needs, or need extra resources - all deserve the chance to be loved and cherished. And all deserve time, understanding, patience, and good, comprehensive veterinary care to help them get happy, healthy, and reach their highest potential. Their lives are important.

Our mission, through our work aforementioned and through comprehensive programs and resources to educate and help community members help the animals in their own lives (thereby preventing more animals from entering the shelter system), is to end the killing of homeless companion animals in southeast WI. The population we rescue comprises those that continue to die in the greatest numbers in our community.

Our vision is for southeast WI to be one of the safest communities in the United States for companion animals.

We couldn’t help these special animals of our community that we do if not for the wonderful people who volunteer their time and talents!

Are you ready to do more for the animals of YOUR community? Become a part of our team! Reach out to us today!
