Urgent Call for Volunteers
Do you have 15 minutes to one hour to spare once a week? Or even once a month? We need you. More than ever.
We are currently finding it very difficult to fill volunteer shifts for canine care. We have one board member (volunteer) responsible for coordinating the schedule each week. If no one volunteers, they are left to shoulder the responsibility, twice a day if need be. They also have full-time jobs.
Shifts involve letting the dogs out to go “potty”, feeding them and cleaning up after any messes. We understand that the task isn’t glamorous, but it is needed to provide the basic level of care for each dog. This is vital to their health and well-being. Most of the dogs are potty trained and relieve themselves outside. You can cuddle and love on the dogs as much as you like (unless there are medical or other issues preventing this, of course).
Volunteering for a worthy cause can be a very rewarding experience. Instead of spending that hour watching a rerun of CSI or scrolling through Facebook posts, we hope you’ll consider helping out at the shelter. Contact Us to volunteer today. Thank you all for your continuing support of Paws Animal Rescue!« Community Pride Half Price Adoption Fee »
I am interested in volunteering.
Ernie and I would love to volunteer. We live up by Gettysburg but willing to drive to Pierre (weather permitting) to take care of the furbabies. Please contact us.
Hello! I am willing to volunteer/work with dogs!
Just a quick response to everyone to say that Jenna has or will email you with information. Let us know if you don’t receive anything within a couple of days.
I would be interested in volunteering.
How old do volunteers need to be? I know of a 15 year old that would be interested.
Hi Pam, We’ve passed your info our canine care coordinator and she will be in touch with an answer. Thank you!
I travel a lot, but I would do a shift or 2 each week that I’m home. I am really pretty allergic to cats, but dogs are fine. I used to volunteer at the cat shelter when it was on Pierre Street but had to quit due to the allergy issue. Are the cats in close proximity to the dogs? Let me know what days/times you need someone.
I would help out as much as possible
Can I get more information please. I would love to volunteer if it works in my schedule.
Please contact me if you still need assistance after Feb 14; I have a tight schedule until then.
I would help out as much as possible if you don’t have strict time restraints. I have 5 dogs and 18 horses (12 in training). I am also out of town a lot but I would do what I could to help.
Thanks, Jill! I will let Jenna (canine care coordinator). You have your hands full, I know. Thank you for all that you do already! ~ Joanne
My husband and I would be interested in volunteering.
