Volunteer Opportunity - Volunteer with the Animal Rescue Team September is National Preparedness Month

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on August 17, 2017

Animal Rescue Volunteers work with the HSUS Animal Rescue Team to help save animals who are the victims of illegal animal cruelty and natural disasters. Whether an out of control hoarder or dogfighting operation, or hurricane or puppy mill, Animal Rescue Volunteers travel from all corners of the country to assist in the on-going care of dogs, cats and other animals who have been rescued from harm.

When the HSUS Rescue Team responds to a law enforcement action or natural disaster, volunteers are called in to help provide care to animals in our emergency shelters. Animal Rescue Volunteers come from all walks of life, generously giving their time to apply their skills and experience in response to animals in need. From animal handling and cage cleaning to administrative tasks, the work of Animal Rescue Volunteers is the true core of the HSUS’ mission to save animals' lives.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Animal Sheltering/Direct Care: Provide care to animals in our temporary shelters, including cleaning cages and enclosures, feeding, watering, restocking supplies, washing dishes, walking dogs, or socializing animals as directed
  • Veterinary Assistance: Apply licensed, certified/registered veterinary technician skills to provide direct medical care to the animals in temporary shelters by supporting on-site veterinarians with animal restraint for examinations, record keeping and administering medications as prescribed

To apply and for more details including expanded position descriptions for the roles, visit http://www.humanesociety.org/community/volunteers/volunteer_arv.html

Volunteers are required to complete certain FEMA courses (IS 100, 200 and 700), and HSUS training on safety, emergency management, the Incident Command System and other critical aspects of emergency care. Volunteers are also required to get a tetanus immunization shot and be at least 18 years of age.

Volunteers must complete a criminal background check before being approved for deployment.

Volunteers must meet the requirements outlined in the Essential Capabilities document (found at http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/national-volunteer-center/essential-capabilities/art_essential_capabilities.pdf).
