Tour de PAWS Off-Site Traveling Team
What is Tour de PAWS?
Here's another super fun way to get involved.... Consider joining our "Tour de PAWS" off-site traveling team.
Longview PAWS off-site events are in full swing and we need HELP!! Now that the World has kind of taken a deep breath and we've found a new sort of normalcy, we're ready to welcome "Tour de PAWS" Volunteer Ambassadors. Our off-site schedule is FULL and we need big smiles and warm hearts to join us.
Volunteer roles include educating our community on the importance of pet adoption/pet responsibility, soliciting new volunteers/supporters and advocating on behalf of the Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center.
We're looking for fun, outgoing animal-lovers who are willing to attend off-site socials, community outreach initiatives, off-site adoption events and fundraisers. We understand that many of our supporters live busy, commitment-filled lives but still want to do their part. This is a great way for you to support our efforts without a huge time commitment as most events are nights and weekends. You step in and step up as your schedule allows!!
Does this sound like something FUN for you?!? First step- join our Tour de PAWS FB group. Next step, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Requirements to Volunteer with Tour de PAWS:
- must 18 years of age or older (children 13 and over may attend off-site with parent/guardian's supervision).
- must be willing and able to communicate via email and/or social media as these are our primary forms of relaying volunteer opportunities.
- must be willing and able to read/sign commitment form that explains and solidifies LACAC's and PAWS' purpose and mission prior to participating as a PAWS Ambassador. Support and advocate for both organizations' missions. - must visit our Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center for a full-tour of our facility. We are willing to schedule these as a group or individually. We feel it's important our Ambassador's fully understand who and what they are advocating for.
