You can help out by actively participating in our campaigns, designing fliers and brochures to be given out to barangays and posted on veterinary clinics and neighborhood message boards to create awareness on the organization's advocacy.
You can also assist in our clinic or just help clean up the animal areas in the shelter. If you’d like to do animal care, walking the dogs or cleaning the eyes and ears of the cats in the cattery or simply petting them makes a lot of difference in socializing and making them more adoptable.
There are still a lot of ways you can help. Below is a list of tasks that you can do.
– Man the office, process adoption paperwork (including counseling), answer the telephone and assist callers and visitors with general questions/directions. This includes giving a tour of PARC to visitors and guests, informing them on the role of the animal shelter in educating the public and creating awareness on the plight of the animals in the country and what they can do to help.
– Monitor rescue operations and incoming animals and assist in completing necessary paperwork and animal database including taking photos and data encoding.
Direct Animal Care
- Assist approved adopters, walk the dogs and/or puppies, socialize the cats/kittens, clean cages, help with feeding, bathing, medication and basic grooming as needed.
- members of this team do EVERYTHING and ANYTHING to get more "exposure" for shelter animals and tell their stories to increase their chances of getting adopted. Some members are also bloggers who try to utilize the web to spread the word about adoption! You can become part of the team by simply blogging!
- Works side by side with the adoption team, the matchmaker matches animals with adopters who are looking for a particular breed or breed mix, personality traits, specific size, sex or age.
– Monitors adoption cases to see how the animals and their guardians are getting along. The program was developed to assure fewer returned animals. These calls may be made from home or office.
Clinic Technician Assistant
- Assist PARC veterinarian in the clinic. This includes preparing medications and assist in spaying and/or neutering of shelter animals. Proper training and close monitoring of the veterinarian is strictly implemented.
- Care for shelter animals in your home. These animals are future adoption candidates too young or ill at the time of admission. All medicine and supplies will be provided by PARC. Additional training is required.
Animal Rescue Team
- rescues animals in distress
Dog Training and Rehabilitation Team
- Works in close coordination with volunteer trainers and senior volunteers/dog handlers with the task of making shelter dogs fit for adoption by socializing them and working on their behavioral problems like aggression, fear or shyness. Interested volunteers should have rabies pre-exposure shots and should undergo special training with our volunteer trainers and dog behaviorists.
- Gives presentation at elementary schools regarding issues such as responsible pet ownership, pet handling and safety, pet overpopulation and endangered species.
- complements all the major projects of the organization with flyers, posters, celebrity endorsements, organizing protest rallies, etc
Dr. Dog (Pet-Facilitated Therapy)
– Together with certified Dr. Dogs, volunteers visit nursing homes, adult day-care centers, hospitals, schools and other establishments. They give patients the feeling that they are the most special people in world. With a loyal new friend who won't judge them for the way they look or their illness, a Dr. Dog accepts them regardless of class, race, age or disability. Despite the advances in medical science, our Dr. Dog partners agree that love is still the best medicine!
- main goal: raise its own funds to be able to offer free spay-neuter to those who cannot afford even PAWS' low cost spay-neuter rates. (Done in close coordination with Shelter Veterinarian)
- Represent PAWS in local events where PAWS is actively participating, helps in manning adoption booths and selling paws merchandise.
- Assist the disaster relief team in the disaster site or at command posts.
– Help out in organizing events to raise funds for the shelter.
Lobbying and legal work
- meeting with government officials, attending hearings, giving legal assistance to those who want to file cases against animal offenders
Volunteers must be prepared to render at least
