We want your experience here at The Purr Project to be fulfilling not only as a volunteer requirement, but also as a place where you can get practical experience as a resume’ builder. We believe that with more responsibility comes more pride and a sense of ownership – this is YOUR Purr Project. In response to this notion, we have come up with a couple of committees that you can voluntarily join.
The adoptions committee will be responsible for adopting our “kids” to the public. Working under Mary Tedford our VP for adoptions, you will be trained to meet with the public for adoption events, fairs, etc.
Would like to help with the web site, updating the info, writing feature stories, updating Petfinder and Adopt-A-Pet, and being a part of the new YouTube video series and (possible), podcast.
Fundraising Manager - Do You Like Hosting Parties?
The Purr Project is a 501(c)3 organization and must therefore secure most of its funding through the general public. A big part of this public funding is through events where we are able to engage the community. We are looking for a new member of the team to head the organization in these efforts. If you enjoy putting on events; if you enjoy planning parties; if you enjoy putting on a show, then come home to the Purr Project team. The successful candidate will take over the duties for our annual signature events like The Stray Cat Strut, P&M Café, and Pet Pictures w/Santa and use their creativity to design, plan and host new events. If you're that special person, come join the team. Experience is not necessary but is helpful - we will teach you what you need to know and give you all of the tools that you need. This opportunity comes with some incentives.
People Skills - the rest we will teach
