Are you interested in making a donation of time? Do you live in PA, NJ, or DE? Do you want to assist the rescue in our efforts to both educate the public and to help huskies find their way into new homes? Well, you have come to the right place. There are many different ways to help Tails of the Tundra Siberian Husky Rescue Inc. (TOTTSHR). You can either volunteer from home, head out on the road or get involved in both!
If you'd like to volunteer from home we have many ways you can help including checking applications, calling shelters, working on one of our many websites, writing for the newsletter or even compile reports for our grants committee.
Like to travel? We certainly have some opportunities for you including attending a meet and greet, transporting dogs, or even help out on an adoption. We of course always need foster homes too! There are so many different aspects to rescue that you may be surprised how you can help.
We are a very close group of volunteers despite our distance. Some ask how a group with so many volunteers spread over a great distance can run effectively? Well, we do owe a lot of that to the internet. All of our volunteers keep in touch via a web-based internet group list. Each day volunteers from different committees post the what, who, when and where or everything going on in the group. Behind the group list, runs our different committees who work on varying aspects of the group. These committees include: Adoption, Applications, Events, Follow-up, Foster, Fundraising, Internet, Publicity, and Volunteer.
So how do you get started? You can take the first step by our volunteer application. Once we receive your volunteer application, one of our members will contact you to let you know they have started the review process. If you have any questions along the way, you can feel free to contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your application has been reviewed, the volunteer coordinator will contact you to finalize any paperwork and you will soon be on your way to becoming a rescue volunteer. Once you become a volunteer you will be added to our group list and a mentor will be assigned to you. New volunteers are provided with a mentor to help them get started. This mentor is someone who has been involved in rescue and will help to guide the new volunteer with what area(s) will best match their interests.
We hope to hear from you soon!
