Corporate Donations Outreach

We are seeing an individual(s) to reach out to corporations on a regular basis to secure sponsorship in way of donated funds or donated goods (if products produced match our needs), and forge regular relations with different corps- local and national.

Volunteer Groomers (In-Home, Businesses, etc.)

Groomers welcome to come to our Encino headquarters for any dogs recently rescued in need of grooming, or brick and mortal groomers to allow our foster parents to bring our dogs for grooming.

Volunteer Foster Recruiters

This position would entail a volunteer (preferably a group) picking up a few of our dogs from boarding and heading out into predetermined parks or areas on the community to drum up interest in fostering, adoption, and volunteering for our organization.

SPECIAL EVENTS COORDINATOR

A few times a year we welcome larger, corporate groups for pack walks with some adoptable dogs, and we educate them about our foster program and ask them to hand out flyers or take info as sign ups. Corporate groups usually run 8am to 11am and can be scheduled at your convenience.  You will organize some dogs to appear at the walk, as well as 2 or 3 volunteers. Give a short talk about DWB, rescue in LA (euthanasia, etc) and our foster program. Then you will give out materials to the group and guide the on a short pack walk.

You should enjoy hiking, meeting new people, be comfortable talking to groups and organized!

SUNDAY PACK WALK EVENTS COORDINATOR – 1 event a month

This position requires a couple of hours each month (from home) organizing pre-fair pack walks/mini picnics at locations close to the SUNDAY fairs (typically Pan Pacific Park but it’s up to you!) and then meeting volunteers and fosters for the mini walk and talk before heading over to fair.

You will post on our Volunteer Facebook Group Page and keep our volunteer coordinator in the loop about the events so they can be sent out in weekly blasts.

 

MAILCHIMP FOSTER NEWSLETTER WRITER – MONDAY MORNINGS

Each week we send at least two blasts of dogs needing fosters via Mailchimp. Monday mornings are especially crucial as this is when we pull dogs. The information of newly pulled dogs will arrive around 9am and we hope the email blast can be ready to send out by noon. It’s a pretty easy to use system where you just plug photos and write descriptions of our dogs needing fosters. It takes about 2 hours per week. Interested? Email galit@dogswithoutborders.org.

ADOPTION FAIR LEAD- ONE SATURDAY PER MONTH AT TAILWAGGERS:

This volunteer position is open for anyone who already has adoption fair experience willing to learn the ropes of how to approve, & process applications, and how to finalize adoptions. Ideally we would like to train 2-3 candidates in order to alternate dates and ask for a commitment of one Saturday per month.
Email galit@dogswithoutborders.org

DOG WALKER- Encino

Daily dog walkers welcome to provide our dogs much needed exercise. An exercised dog, is a happy dog (that goes for humans too!). General walking times are approximately 10am and 7pm, depending on winter or summer hours for approximately an hour.

DOG WALKING SCHEDULER

This is a volunteer-from-home position to correspond with our volunteer dog walkers by scheduling the walks, providing instructions, and sending reminder emails the day prior to ensure our dogs don’t miss out on their daily walks. Approximately 5 – 30 minutes per day.
