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 support chronically underfunded shelters and rescues in our area, and to help loving owners keep their pets.
We are an all-volunteer animal welfare group. We fund raise and network to support shelters and rescues in and around the Shenandoah Valley. We also support pet owners who are struggling to keep their pets by off-setting veterinary care and other costs. As needed, we work with owners to help them re-home their pets into new families. We support existing shelter and rescue foster homes, and recruit and support new fosters.
We are open to any and all ideas for fund raising, particularly for veterinary care. Please feel free to join us. If you have a couple of hours a week, or if you are ready to dive in head first, we welcome you. Please check out our Facebook page. If you prefer to work with another animal welfare group, we have connections with many in our area and can help you find a good fit.
