Urgent relies heavily on volunteers to keep our page going, and up to date. We don’t think anyone knows how many people contribute to make Urgent what it is today. We are currently looking for the following volunteers. ALL help is internet based and can be done from anywhere around the world. We currently have volunteers all over the US, Australia, England and Germany!
“Pup & Kitty Checkers.” Our pup and kitty checker groups are made up of volunteers that check folders nightly for dogs & cats no longer on the ACC’s website. They compile a list and then we arrange to get status. Without these dedicated volunteers, our pages would not be as accurate as they are. This is an easy job that only requires you to access the Pet Harbor site and check A#’s. You will create a list of those missing and post it in our group. These groups meet anywhere from 7pm – 9pm and takes no more than 30 minutes to an hour (MAX.) Volunteers are asked to help a minimum of 3 nights a week.
Urgent Help Desk – DOGS & CATS. The Urgent Help Desk responds to emails from potential fosters and adopters. We offer information and recommend rescues that are currently looking for fosters/adopters in their area. Basic knowledge of how the ACC works, as well as “people skills,” are required. Since the Help Desk receives emails 24/7, this volunteer position is flexible. We do require that our volunteers check in at least 5 times a week.
Urgent Blurbs – Every day, a group of dedicated volunteers get together to write the posts for our Death Row Dogs & Cats. If you are a decent writer, and are able to write at least 12 short posts a week (available at 6 PM some nights is a major plus,) please send us a message! Our animals need you to give them a voice!
Instagram – are you on Instagram? Urgent is seeking volunteers to help us create posts and share them nightly. We prefer that you be available by 7pm, so the posts can be up as soon as possible. We will train anyone interested. We do require that you be available at least 3 nights a week.
