Event Volunteers: Meet & Greets can be a lot fun! For these events, we need individuals who can help us handle a dog or two during the event. This also involves talking with people who are interested in adoption or want to know more about our organization. The other needs we have at events include watering and walking the dogs and in general, taking care of the dogs.
Fundraising: As always, there are many expenses in caring for rescued dogs from food, vet care, collars, leashes, cages and general day-to-day items needed to take care of each dog. Our adoption fees usually do not cover all of our expenses so we rely on donations and on fundraising events. We are looking for creative individuals to help us with these events and brainstorm unique ideas.
Transporting: Like hitting the open road? We have the perfect opportunity for you! We need people who would be willing to pick up dogs from shelters in the Midwest. Many dogs do not have much time to make it out of the shelter so transporters need to be somewhat flexible in what days and time they are available to pick up dogs. Also needed are people willing to take dogs to their new forever homes.
Grant Writing: We are looking for someone experienced in the grant writing for non-profits that can either write or consult on our grant writing efforts.
Professionals: As we focus all of our efforts on saving Labs, we will need additional help with back-office services such as updating our website, graphic design, accounting, marketing, and publicity. We also need help promoting our events by distributing flyers and posting online listings.
