Get Involved ... Volunteer!
LOST PAWS, Inc. looks to the community and volunteers to help keep its door open. If you would like to help out, donating your time and in-kind services can involve activities such as the following:
Adopt-A-THON WorkersYour time a few hours every other weekend helping us with our pet adoption days will enable us to save and care for more dogs. Please email us if you would like to help make a difference in our dogs' lives. Sorry, we canít accept volunteers less than 18 years of age.
Towel WashersWe always need towels donated and washed weekly. Every cat and every dog gets a nice clean towel at the Adopt-A-Thons. This just requires to you take home towels once a week and wash them.
Luv-A-Pet Center Weekend CleanersWe are required to clean the cats up at the Petsmart in Orem on the weekends. It requires someone to clean 10 catsí cages once a month.
GroomingWe always want our dogs to look their best for The Adopt-A-THONS and some of our rescues are in great need of a makeover.
FundraisingWe are always in need of help in the fundraising department. If you have experience as a fundraiser for non-profit organizations, we can use your help. If you would like to organize a fundraising event, we could use your help. Any and all ideas are welcome. We also need help with Flyer circulation announcing special events--posting them & keeping them current. We also like to put up flyers at veterinary clinics and pet stores featuring current adoptable dogs.
Phone workThis would involve making preliminary calls, new family and yearly follow ups.
Grant WritingWe are also looking for someone experienced in the grant writing area of fundraising. Currently, most of our funds are from private donations from caring individuals and our adoption fee donations. If you can help us in this area, we need you ASAP!
If you are interested in volunteering, please call (801) 423-1334 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive our Volunteer Form, then fill it out, sign it, and email it back to our office. One of our volunteers will contact you as soon as possible.
