I guess we've become a victim of our own success, and whilst the charity has grown beyond my wildest dreams, it has also become more and more difficult to manage. We are punching well above our weight for such a small charity and running on such a restricted budget.
We would love to have another member of full time staff on board to help with every aspect of the day to day routine and the dogs needs, and to help with the dogs with the severe health and behaviour issues, but unfortunately we just don't have the funding to do so.
However, as they say "as one door closes another opens" and a VOLUNTARY position may provide us with the help we need. So, I am appealing for somebody to join our team that can designate at least 6 hours a day for a minimum of 2 days every week, has their own transport and wants to learn and experience the joys that arise working with dogs that have had such a tough time.
I think it's important to point out that this is not an advert for voluntary dog walkers, nor will we be starting to take on volunteers on a regular basis. It is a chance for someone to become a valued member of our team, to learn all aspects of rescue (including cleaning kennels) and has the time to prioritise two days of their week to help the dogs that nobody else wants. Believe me when I say seeing the rewards of giving your time well out ways the actual time you give.
So if you have two days a week to volunteer for at least 6 hours on each, have your own transport and would love hands on experience of getting to really know man's best friend, then drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
