The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are the Animal Adoption League - an animal rescue and adoption organization operating in the greater Charlotte metro area.
Volunteers are our lifelines and we always need help. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available. Some opportunities include:
Fostering - since we do not operate a shelter, foster homes are the key to being able to rescue and place more animals
Transporting animals, such as to vet appointments, foster care, partner rescue groups, etc.
Assisting at adoption events
PR - such as increasing awareness for our group and of our adoptable animals
Administrative tasks, such as taking pictures of animals, responding to emails/phone calls, stuffing envelopes, writing thank you cards, drafting/proof-reading newsletter articles, etc. The opportunities here are endless!
