NTBHR Volunteer Opportunities
NTBHR has many opportunities for you to share your time, talent, professional skills and resources with the many needy basset hounds in North Texas.
Please read about the very many ways you can share your time and talents, and then fill out the Volunteer Application!
Fostering: We turn away almost as many bassets as we rescue for lack of foster homes. Be a foster and find out how really great these dogs are and feel good about what you do! Please read "Fostering Information" on our website to find out if fostering is right for you.
Adoptions Committee- We need volunteers to process applications, do home visits, and help facilitate adoptions. Much of this work can be done on your computer, except for the home visits. This is an easy way to help save more basset hounds. EVERY adopted basset hound creates an opening for another needy basset to come into our program.
Foster Mentoring- If you have fostered in the past, and are not ready for another basset at this time, this is a great way you can help! Share your experience and mentor a new foster!
Pick-Up and Transport- (Most of these opportunities exist during the weekday) Pick up and Transport a basset from a shelter to one of our approved Veterinarians or to a foster home
HERE ARE SOME OTHER IMPORTANT WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
Events: We need volunteers to help plan and implement our fundraising and community events. Each year we sponsor two major fundraising events:
Desktop Publishing: We need individuals with desktop publishing skills to help us with our printed publications. We need your creative skills to keep our message up to date and relevant to the needs of our community and our organization. Our regular publications include, the Shuffle Flyer, an online Quarterly Newsletter, and our Catalog for the Bone Soiree. Knowledge of Microsoft Publisher and Constant Contact are helpful.
Social Media: We currently are seeking individuals to oversee our various forms of Social Media, including maintaining a fresh appearance and regular updates to our Facebook Page. We also maintain a Twitter Account, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Flickr. Separate individuals for each would be helpful.
