A no-kill shelter serving Boston & the South Shore
Volunteer at HSAR
Shelter Shift Volunteer: Responsibilities include cleaning the shelter, exercising and socializing animals, and feeding cats and kittens. We have morning and evening shifts.
*Recycle Team: Volunteers are needed to pick up redeemable bottles and cans from bins around town. Then bottles and cans can be sorted and brought to the local redemption center.
Pet Fostering: We are always in need of temporary foster homes for newborn kittens, cats who need special medical attention, and homeless cats. Foster parents are needed to house, feed and care for these animals while we try to find them new homes. This commitment can range from 8 –12 weeks.
Donation Drives:Help us contact area businesses and service organizations to obtain donations of much-needed pet products such as food, litter and grooming goods.
Event Planning/Fundraising: Since our organization is non-profit and receives no financial support from the government, we rely upon our fundraising events to help us generate community awareness and finance our various programs.
Grant writing: Grants are one of the most important means of financing a non-profit group’s endeavors. We need help researching grant opportunities and submitting grant proposals.
Newsletter: Help us put out a monthly newsletter, in both electronic and printed form! We need people to submit articles, solicit ideas and coordinate overall production. This will require about 10 hours per month and will require solid computer and internet skills.
