You can get involved in a number of ways to help make a difference.
1. FOSTER HOME
If you own a home, we are always in need of people who can take in a rescued dog or cat and/or take it
to a veterinarian for a medical checkup. For example, let's say you are a renter and are not permitted
to bring in a large dog to your apartment or condo. Here is where teamwork is essential. A foster parent
is needed to house the dog, whereas the rescuer could take the dog to a veterinarian.
Finding homes for large dogs and adult cats is extremely difficult. But it can be done. With quality
photos and a well written story, the chances of homeless dog or cat getting adopted are increased.
3. TOP NOTCH PROMOTIONAL WRITER
Can you sell ice to an Eskimo? Can you write a few sentences and motivate a reader to take action?
The storyline of a homeless pet is as critical as the photograph. They go hand in hand. Here's where we
need a brilliant writer. A strong writer can also help in getting articles accepted by general newspapers and
magazines. This achieves the goal of reaching mainstream America and not preaching to the same choir.
4. ELOQUENT SPEAKER
One of our education tactics is attending community forums to educate residents of the plight of homeless
pets and addressing the misconceptions and sharing the tools to reverse the trend. This requires an eloquent
speaker but someone who is also accustomed to dealing with hard line opposition, mostly individuals who
are married to the misperceptions of homeless cats and dogs.
Funds are always needed mostly for veterinary care for rescued pets and some minor administrative costs
such as postage for mailings. If you have a strong record in fundraising, whether it's an online effort or
physical event, raising a few hundred dollars to several thousands of dollars, we'd love to hear from you!
