    We have animals that are coming overseas and need someone to help our main volunteer to coordinate and communicate about the animals verbally and written. Basically assisting in getting animals being sent to the meat market in another country to the foster homes, then to a vet, then to a plane, then to America. Then coordinating in English to help get paperwork and such in order to get them placed in foster and forever homes. A Bilingual Chinese/English Speaker and Writer would be very helpful in just communicating needs. The process flow is already flushed out but being available to translate about an animal or take calls about an animal is imperative.

  • Puppy Raisers

    This is a virtual opportunity

    Trainings are currently virtual! Puppy Raiser volunteers teach a pup basic obedience skills from the time it is 8 weeks of age to approximately 18 months of age. Volunteers prepare the puppy for advanced training. Raisers have the unique opportunity of beginning a future guide dog's training in their home and teaching the puppy to acclimate to different environments such as stores, restaurants, and workplaces. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, live within a 2-hour radius of San Antonio, and be available to be with the dog the majority of the day. It is ok for puppy raisers to have other animals in their home as socialization is an integral component of raising the puppies. This is a very rewarding opportunity in which the volunteer can watch their puppy grow and learn and may culminate in the puppy's graduation to becoming a full-service guide dog. All volunteers receive on-going training and support from the GDTX staff. For more information please contact Susana Dias, Volunteer Coordinator at (210) 366-4081 or by email at annie@guidedogsoftexas.org. Commitment: 12 - 18 months; flexible and able to be with the dog the majority of the day. It is preferable if raisers live within a 2-hour radius of San Antonio, Texas.

  • PLEASE BE A FOSTER PARENT TO A KITTEN OR PUPPY!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Pet Assistance Foundation has a rescue and adoption program for unwanted, stray or given up pets - sometimes from very abusive situations. The kitten season this spring has been a really busy one - we get calls all the time to come pick up litters and moms. We really need help to care for them on a temporary basis. We don't expect a foster to take an entire litter - helping us with one pet would be very much appreciated. We pay for all medical care, food and supplies - all of it. You would supply love and happy care. We hold adoptions every weekend at three PETCO stores: Downey, Lakewood, and Rolling Hills for our adoptable pets. The situation would be a temporary one for you, but is incredibly important for the play time and socialization of the pet you would give a home to. We cannot stress enough how valuable a service this would be to help a helpless animal find a forever home and loving parents. Please- if you can help us in any way, email us at petassistancefoundation@gmail.com or you can call our office at 310-732-1230.

  • Fundraising Leader & Committee

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    As a non-profit organization we rely heavily on donations from the public, both private and business, to enable us to help as many animals in the community as possible. We don't have a physical shelter so all animals are in volunteers foster homes or with owners who can hold them while we search for new furever homes for them. As a volunteer foster home, SCC covers all medical and food for the animals while the fosters provide shelter, transportation to adoption events, and above all LOVE and attention! However, even though we get some things and foods donated, and a small part of the cost to make sure each animal is basically healthy and ready for a new home, the costs can get overwhelming! Without a relatively steady income of donations thru adoptions, goodwill donations, and especially fundraisers - SCC would cease to exist...quickly! Fundraisers are the backbone of any non-profit organization!! We have a good base of dedicated volunteers but we need someone with good organization skills, contacts, and the time and drive to get things rolling and keep it going!

    This is the way Colucci's Animal Trappers & Savers, inc. dba C.A.T.S., inc. is helping our community, yours & mine. I believe I've come up with the most ingenious idea ever. Since handing out animal food FREE of charge to the UNDERSERVED in our community is a huge part of what C.A.T.S., inc. does and the Social Distancing Guidelines would have been a huge part in shutting us down, I came up with the idea of pet store gift cards. That made the difference between staying IN business or going OUT of business. However, to stay within the social distancing guidelines we can no longer accept animal food donations at this time, but can accept & need from you, your Volunteer Match members, their co-workers, friends & family is to double down on their monetary donations to C.A.T.S, inc., please do not wait for the next world wide crisis to donate $10.00 or, donate another amount. Your sustaining donation of $10.00 a month or computer volunteering 10 Hours a month is just another way you can "Pay it Forward" to our community. Please mail C.A.T.S., inc. pet store gift cards or any gift cards you have lying around tor us to re-mail to those people that don't want to risk leaving their homes. PayPal @ catsinc@cox.net, or Check/Money Order, etc. to C.A.T.S., inc. P.O. Box 12966 Las Vegas, NV 89112 Also see Face Book: Henry Colucci for quick donation button Best of luck to us all!!!
