Pets Bring Joy is fueled
by volunteer power,
for which we are
extremely grateful!

In 2018, over 150 volunteers
collectively donated over
7,500 hours of their time to PBJ.





We still have many more exciting ideas to pursue that we could greatly use your help with, and so we've created the list of open volunteer positions below.
  • Some are strategic roles, requiring a recurring and sustained commitment of time, but which can often be performed on a flexible schedule from home;

  • Others are smaller but equally important roles that can be done on an ad-hoc basis when your schedule permits.
If you love animals, want to make a difference in your community, and have time and talent to devote to a worthy cause, please review the volunteer opportunities below, then please click here to complete a no-obligation volunteer interest questionnaire.





STRATEGIC POSITIONS
Volunteers in strategic positions are critical to the successful operation of Pets Bring Joy's rescue mission. While work hours are flexible and most of the work can be accomplished from home or remotely (depending on the specific position), it is important that strategic volunteers be reliable communicators: specifically, that they can commit to checking emails and text messages at least twice a day except when they've made specific arrangements to hand off their responsibilities to another PBJ team member (e.g., when on vacation, during family emergencies, while at work, etc.).

Strategic volunteer positions require the same degree of professionalism that paid positions in larger for-profit/non-profit organizations require. The experience gained through these positions are invaluable in building up a resume for students or folks who find themselves between employment opportunities. For retirees who have given up demanding careers but who still want to make a positive difference in our community, volunteering with PBJ is an excellent way to remain vital and engaged.

Strategic volunteer positions typically require a minimum time commitment of 8 - 16 hours a month to make a difference, but some of our most passionate core volunteers give far more of their time ... we are grateful for whatever someone feels moved to give us in terms of the precious gift of their time, their skills, and their passion for service.

OTHER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
People looking to help PBJ as volunteers don't necessarily need to be have huge amounts of time available to give, nor do they need to be predictable in terms of when they will be available to help. We have many types of volunteer opportunities that simply require adding your name to a mailing list! Whenever we need help for a given task -- say, transporting a cat from point A to B (our "Kitty Uber" program :o), we email everyone on that particular list; if you can help, you reply, and if you can't, you needn't reply -- it's simple as that!

Thus, whether you have only an hour or so to give every once in a while, or more time to give more often, please take a look at the volunteer opportunities below to see if any of them are of interest to you; we appreciate every hour volunteered as a gift.
