Opportunity Description:

We are looking for volunteers to come and help with Megan’s Rescue Efforts at adoption events, fundraisers, fostering, dog walking, socializing cats, laundry and with some administrative work. Administrative type work could include any of the following: A dog or cat foster coordinator, ensuring fosters have the required supplies and arranging to get them what’s needed.  It also requires reading updates twice a month and responding to concerns they may have with the animals in their care.  As well as coordinating with the events team to have animals at adoption events. Being part of the reference check team – checking references for volunteers and potential adopters Helping with our online presence and posting animals on various platforms. Fostering: The rescue provides all the supplies you would need and covers all the vetting for our animals, you provide a loving environment and day to day care of the animal (cats or dogs) Fundraisers: Being part of the fundraising committee, attending fundraising events, helping coordinate with other volunteers to make successful fundraisers.  One of our biggest fundraisers are dog washes, we require volunteers to assist in bathing dogs for their owners at these fundraising events.  They’re in Airdrie, Riverbend & Shawnessy.  We usually require about 4 volunteers at each one to ensure their success. Adoption Events: We require volunteers to help load up the required supplies, equipment, and animals the morning of the event, setting up the event, attending the event, taking down and unloading at the end of the day.  If you were able to help with any portion of the event at all, that would be very helpful.  The adoption events are imperative to getting our animals out there for people to interact with and see so they can be adopted.  It requires being personable and supervising the animals to help them be the best they can be. Dog Walking: Walking the dogs in care in the evenings, starting at 6pm and being back by 8pm during the week, weekend hiking, jogging and daytime outings.  We will provide treats, poop bags harnesses and leashes as necessary, as well as crates or seatbelts as needed for transport. Socializing Cats: We require assistance in maintaining the cat room and helping with feeding and cleaning in the evenings and spending time cuddling and/or playing with the cats to socialize them and help keep them mentally stimulated.  Weeknights between 6pm-8pm Laundry: We need help with keeping up with the laundry from the rescue.  We will provide the detergent, put the laundry in bins outside to be picked up.  You wash and fold it and return it to the place you picked up from.
