Lulu’s Rescue is almost entirely a volunteer organization. We depend upon the contributions of all volunteers to do our life saving work. No contribution is too small, no skill without value. Have you considered volunteering for Lulu’s but didn’t know what you could contribute? Here are just some ways volunteers help Lulu’s:
Taking a dog into your home, this costs you nothing out of your pocket but is one of the biggest gifts you can give.
Website, Facebook, flyers content.
Create posters of adoptable pets, upcoming events, or outreach for volunteers.
We have a wonderful designer, we would love a back up/extra set of hands to keep material fresh and updated.
Keeping the website current is critical – for so many people it will be their first visit and lasting impression of Lulu’s.
Do you have ideas on how to raise money? Funds go to pulling dogs to safety, vetting each dog to be sure they are 100% healthy, getting them into foster care, and participating in community events.
Legwork and Networking:
The world of rescue relies on networks of people around the country. Do you have connections? Are you good at finding groups and making connections? Can you compose a compelling tweet, text or Facebook entry? Help us effectively and consistently connect in different ways.
Advocacy and Education:
While a big part of what Lulu’s does is rescue individual dogs, we know that educating the public (adults and children), our law makers and communities about how to care for their pets, the importance of spaying and neutering and that killing healthy, adoptable dogs is not the answer. Do you like to speak to groups trying to establish outreach programs? Do you write to your congressperson and let them know how you feel and what you expect as a constituent?
Maintaining our network of adopters, applicants, and events will help us to reach more people and learn from our experiences.
These are just some ideas on how you can make a difference with Lulu’s. Perhaps you have others? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
