So, you want to volunteer for an animal rescue?  Fantastic!  We have many opportunities depending on the amount of time you can commit to helping.  The first question you need to answer is “how much time do I have to volunteer????”

ANSWER: I JUST NEED COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS.

That is fine.  We love to have people experience the joy of rescue.  If you need 25 hours or less, please sign up for our Volunteer Opportunities email.  We send this out once a week with the opportunities we need help with and the number of hours you will get. 

ANSWER: I WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER A FEW TIMES A MONTH, FOR A FEW HOURS AT A TIME

If you can commit to this for at least the next 6 months, you could help with cat adoptions at PetsMart.  This does require some training, so, you will need to come to our orientation.  Our next orientation is March 2nd at 1PM at the Chapel Hill PetsMart, please email volunteers@pawsandprayers.org to let us know you are coming.  We can only have 10 people per orientation, so, sign up early!  You can also participate in any of the Volunteer Opportunities, so sign up for the Volunteer Opportunities email. 

ANSWER: I WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK FOR 4 OR MORE HOURS A DAY

If you are looking for a long term volunteer opportunity, we need help at our office.  This is where the magic happens.  We are looking for people that can cover a shift once a week for 4 hours.  You would be helping to organize, clean, do laundry, wash dishes, clean cat cages, file, feed cats, empty litter, pretty much anything that needs done to keep things moving forward.  In my opinion, this is the hardest, yet most rewarding way to volunteer.  You really get to know the animals and help them to find homes.  If you are interested in this, email me at jen@pawsandprayers.org.  You can also do the Volunteer Opportunities, so make sure to sign up for the Volunteer Opportunities email.
