Karnes County Humane Organization Needs Helpers of All Kinds!
ANIMAL TRANSPORT Have you ever wished your backseat driver could only say “meow” or “woof”? Animal transporters help our animals get to a foster home or rescue organization. Signing up for this position means you agree to be on the on-call list. When a request comes up, you can say yes or no depending on whether or not you can accommodate the request on any given day. If you can also volunteer as an emergency medical transport you will be called in life threatening situations to pick up sick or injured animals and take them to the vet clinic. Let us know if you can be a Medical Transport. Things to think about before applying to become an animal transport: --You must have a valid driver’s license. --Willingness to transport animals in your vehicle. --If becoming a medical transport you need some experience and/or training with handling sick and injured animals and are willing to accept the responsibilities of this task.
PHOTOGRAPHER (THIS POSITION IS CURRENTLY FILLED BUT SHOULD IT BECOME VACANT WE WILL POST AN APPLICATION) Photos of our available animals are so important! They are the only glimpse that people have of an animal before they decide to adopt and our rescues require a photo before they agree to accept the animal. These photos will be for our website and quite possibly for some print material, but also for our social media, Facebook, Twitter and Pet Point. Things to think about before applying to become a photographer: --Be able to meet with local animal control officers at the facility at the appointed time (this maybe during business hours). --Own your own camera (camera phones are acceptable) and know how to download pictures and/or email those to us. --Photo editing is desirable. --Be able to capture the animal with great photos which does the animal justice. Remember the better they look the better chance they have to find a home.
FACEBOOK VOLUNTEER Are you always on Facebook? One of the easiest ways you can volunteer is to like us on Facebook. But it doesn’t stop there. Ever wonder how a post gets into your newsfeed? Share a photo of an animal posted on our FB page to your own timeline. That’s the best way to get the animal exposed to people who might be looking to adopt a pet. It’s fun. It’s simple. It does a great thing for our animals by getting them exposed to the WORLD!
