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.
Our mission is to help animals across North Carolina.
Juliet's House Animal Rescue volunteers help save homeless animals across North Carolina. We have no facility, but operate the cat adoption rooms at two local PetSmart Pet Stores and a Petco Store. Additionally, we have weekly adoption fairs at which our adoptable dogs are present. Apart from our adoption partnerships with Petsmart and Petco, the majority of our rescued cats and dogs are cared for within a network of foster families.
Juliet's House is always looking for volunteers to help at events, foster, and care for our pets at adoption centers.
Juliet’s House Animal Rescue includes The Guilford County Pet Responsibility Program as part of its educational outreach. This program is presented by volunteers as part of participating schools’ Character Education Programs, and includes a total of six weekly lessons for 4th grade students.
Pet Responsibility students learn about the basic needs of animals, the importance of having pets spayed or neutered to prevent pet overpopulation, and how to keep pets healthy and safe. Students are also encouraged to think about empathy and the importance of standing up for others. Guest speakers and visits from insured therapy dogs enhance the learning experience.
The Pet Responsibility Program needs more volunteers to help teach classes! You don’t have to have any prior teaching experience to volunteer, and the program only requires a time commitment of 40 minutes once a week.
