"This Is Why We Volunteer!"

     Day in and day out, volunteers give tirelessly of themselves to help make life more comfortable to animals in need. They spend hours of their time spreading awareness and provide animals with a safe haven until a foster or adoptive family comes for them. Volunteers walk with the animals, play with them, and show them that they are worthy and deserving of love and respect. That just scratches the surface of what volunteers do. 

   Project R.E.A.C.H. is thrilled to present an initiative to highlight the good work that volunteers do, to encourage others to consider volunteering, and to share the rescues that are in need of homes to provide another platform by which they can get even more exposure to meet their future forever families. 

We want to hear about YOUR volunteering experiences and to share the pets who you really want to see get a home soon! 

Here's how you can get this started:

1. Join us on our Facebook page 

2. Upload a picture or picture(s) of the pet(s) that you really want to see get a home (dog, cat, ferret, chicken, guinea pig, hamster, lizard, snake...and the list goes on and on).

  • Share with us his or her story.
  • Provide us with the name of the rescue or shelter you are affiliated with.
  • Explain how people can apply to adopt or foster the rescue.
  • Share with us why you choose to volunteer, your experiences, and why you think volunteering is so worthwhile!
  • Share how people can become volunteers at your rescue or shelter.

3. Share your story with your friends and encourage them to become a part of Project R.E.A.C.H.

Project R.E.A.C.H. believes that when people are able to see and read about volunteer experiences, they will be more interested in knowing that volunteering is a great way to give back to the animals and the community at large. Volunteers can dedicate a couple of hours a day, a few hours a month--there is a different fit for everyone. I think it is so important to hear from volunteers because they see firsthand the needs and pressing issues that face homeless pets. If you are a volunteer, speak up! We'd love to hear from you. :)
