We are interested in volunteers who are self motivated and eager to jump right into new experiences. We don't have a facility, but foster all of our animals in our homes. We get together at regularly scheduled Adoption Events, usually on the Weekends with a few special ones here and there.
A Volunteer who doesn't foster can still help greatly at these events by tending to the animals while we unload/load our supplies, playing and socializing, walking and watering the animals during the event. Once you feel familiar, you can also engage potential adopters, donors, etc.
We also have a wide variety of ways to help without attending adoption events, such as Humane Education (speaking to groups, classes, etc.), Returning Voice Mails, Recruiting new Volunteers, Fundraising, Creating Newsletters, Engaging followers on Social Media, etc.
No prior experience needed, but you will need a willingness to work with a wide variety of personalities who all work to improve the lives of animals.
If you are under the age of 18, you must be under the supervision of a parent/guardian.
Complete and submit a brief questionnaire on our website and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you shortly to get you started! http://desotoanimalrescue.org/volunteerfoster-application.html
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
