Volunteer Activity Descriptions

CLEANING CAT CAGES
Some of our foster homes have more fosters than others. The people who are gracious enough to open their homes to large amounts of cats/kittens need help scrubbing kitty condos, litter boxes etc. Not very glamorous, but very necessary.

CAT/DOG FOSTERING
As an all volunteer rescue group we foster the animals in our homes. Not only does this make for a more socialized animal, we also know where and where not to place the animal when it becomes ready for adoption. This is a big commitment as it includes taking an additional animal into your home for an indefinite amount of time. All animals are fully vet checked before they are placed out for foster.

WORKING FUND RAISERS
Second Chance survives solely on donations and aggressive fundraising activities. If you enjoy interacting with others and selling items to benefit the shelter animals, this is the one for you.

TRANSPORTING ANIMALS TO PETSMART AND BACK AND FORTH TO VETS
We have been very lucky to be included in the PETsMART Luv-a-Pet program and our animals are showcased there all the time. We need assistance picking up animals that are at our vets/foster homes and taking them to the various PETsMART stores as they venture on the road to their new homes. Occasionally, one of our animals becomes ill from the stress of being at the store and needs to be picked up and taken to our vet for medical care.

OFF SITE SOCIALIZATION OF CATS AT PETSMART
Being in a cage 24/7 is not good for our animals, therefore, we have volunteers who after completing our orientation program go on a scheduled basis to the PETsMARTs and work with the kitties. This would include holding, brushing, playing with, clipping nails and anything else that would make their journey to their new “permanent home” more tolerable.

TRANSPORTING, SETTING UP AND TEARING DOWN FOR FUNDRAISERS
When we do a fundraising event, there is always product that needs to be unpacked, setup for display, taken down and driven back to the storage area.

DONATION JAR DISTRIBUTION AND MAINTAINANCE
Finding safe and suitable places that we can place a donation jar. It is important that the jar be checked at least twice a week with donations removed and sent to proper board member and making sure the jars are clean and well maintained at all times. Ideas for attractive donation jars are also needed.

COMPUTER RESEARCH
The internet has a goldmine of ideas for fundraising, donation opportunities from companies (Milkbone, Purina etc.), available grants for shelters, affiliate programs for shelters. If you have the time to surf, surf for the animals!

SOLICATION OF MONEY AND PRODUCT DONATIONS
When we do an event such as the Chinese Auction, Dog Walk, etc. we need products, food, items etc. to be donated or money and gift cards that we can use to buy product. They sky is the limit when it comes to donations, we just need people to go out there and solicit them.
