Type A mother hen types, come on down! This is a position for those who are detail oriented, good at following instructions, organized, on their phones or email all the time, enjoy providing guidance and teaching others, need everything done right… basically control freaks. We need people who can commit to being the primary point person for your very own handful of animals. You’ll be the main contact via phone and email for the foster parents — answer questions, hold their hand, arrange meetings, that kind of stuff. This can be done from anywhere that you have internet and phone access, coordinators must be available to check their phone/email regularly throughout each day. (Coordinators are more than welcome to help in person/play with puppies also as their schedules allow!)

Application Processor | Remote

If you are detail oriented, good at following instructions, organized, analytical, and want to volunteer without leaving your couch, this is the position for you! We need people who we can count on to help us process adoption applications for dogs and cats. This can be done from anywhere that you have internet and phone access. Application processors must have flexibility to work during weekdays 9 to 5-ish because that is generally when references like vet offices are open. The faster we can thoroughly process adoption applications, the faster we can place our animals in forever homes… which means the more lives we can save. This position is just as crucial as any other to our team. (Processors are more than welcome to help in person/play with puppies also as their schedules allow!)
