Calling all animal lovers!
Fulton County Animal Services, managed by LifeLine Animal Project, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is seeking volunteers to help attain its goal of ending the euthanasia of healthy and treatable Atlanta pets. In order to meet this goal, volunteers are needed to fill a number of important roles inside and outside the shelter. Opportunities to help exist in the following areas:
Offsite Pet Adoptions - The more volunteers we have, the more events we can hold, and the more lives can be saved.
Animal Photography - Whether you have a DSLR or a camera phone, your photos help get adopters' attention.
Fundraising - Assist the shelter with raising money for additional lifesaving programs.
Donations - Help the shelter collect donations of items and services it needs and build relationships with community partners.
Pet Retention - Help pet owners find alternatives to surrendering their animals to the shelter.
Rescue - Build relationships with rescue groups and arrange transports to areas where there is a shortage of pets available for adoption.
Marketing - Promote adoption at the shelter as an alternative to buying pets, specific events, FCAS services, and individual animals.
Community Outreach - Educate the community with regard to adoption, spay/neuter, tethering, and other relevant issues to help create a culture of responsible pet ownership and empower pet owners.
Pet Matchmaking - Help potential adopters choose the right pet.
Pet Detectives - Reunite owners with their lost pets.
TNR - Assist with FCAS's feral cat trap-neuter-release program.
Transport - Drive animals to adoption events, veterinarian appointments, and meet rescues.
Foster - Save a life by sharing your home with a homeless animal that needs some extra TLC before becoming available for adoption or until it is adopted.
Dog Behavior - Take dogs outside to burn off some energy, maintain their house-training, and teach them basic commands to make them more adoptable.
Cat Socialization - Spend time with cats to reduce their anxiety and improve their quality of life.
To learn more and get started, join us for a Volunteer Orientation at the shelter, 860 Marietta Boulevard NW, Atlanta GA 30318, on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.
We will go over policies, procedures, specific volunteer opportunities, and take a tour of the shelter.
