Recycling Program Managers Needed!

Milwaukee Pets Alive isn’t just another rescue. We are here to shape rescue. Join us as a Recycling Program Manager! 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!

We’ve heard about several nonprofits raising money through recycling programs - and we want to get in on the action, too! We just need volunteers dedicated to helping us manage the project! Every penny counts when you’re building a sanctuary!

We love a good double dip. No, not the kind where you dip your chip back into the communal dip bowl after you’ve taken a bite of it (that’s just wrong) but the kind where your actions help more than one entity. This is one of those opportunities!

As a rescue, we have a lot of supporters that have a lot of cat food cans (as well as other household recyclables like soft drink cans). While many do recycle them in their curbside bins every other week, they aren’t generating any funds to help animals by doing it that way! And when there’s an opportunity to recycle to help animals, it can encourage those who aren’t already to do so (instead of throwing them in the trash) which keeps them out of the landfill - and that helps the environment - and that’s what we call a double dip, my friends! There is nothing worse than walking past a trash can when entering a store (or at a gas station, etc.) and seeing recyclables like cans and bottles sticking out IN the garbage. Let’s create an outlet to keep those items out of the trash while helping our special needs and considerations animals at the same time.

The Recycling Program Manager will:

  • Establish drop off locations with local businesses around town for placement of collection bins.
  • Coordinate with drop-off location businesses for regular pick up of recyclables collected.
  • Bring recyclables collected to a recycling center.
  • Explore other recycling programs MPA could be a part of like plastic, cell phone, ink cartridges, small electronics, etc.

Volunteer 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 for pick-ups, phone calls, dropping off during business hours, etc.).

We are looking for 5 people to fill this role. Must have valid driver's license and car insurance and reliable transportation. Individuals motivated by helping animals and the environment will grow this program into a huge success for our organization.

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 piece of the organization. Individual must be able to follow through on their commitments. MPA is looking for a volunteers to fill this role who recognize 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!
