Placement Volunteers - Remember
the person who introduced you to your first greyhound and provided
you with support and advice in those first couple of weeks? If you
have some greyhound experience, perhaps you can share that same
positive experience for another individual or family as they embark
on greyhound adoption. Let us know if you would like to learn more
about one of the most critical and most rewarding volunteering jobs:
introducing greyhounds to their forever homes.
Event Staffing - Learn to setup Greyhound outreach events and be there to answer visitors' questions. This is a great place to learn about Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest and Greyhounds. No experience is necessary. We will teach you what you need to know and you can benefit the Greyhounds from your first day. There are events just about every weekend so we have plenty of openings for event staffing.
Transportation - The Greyhounds often need to be transported from one place to another. This may be from their foster home to an event or to the veterinarian for an appointment. All that is needed is some training in handling a Greyhound safely and good driving! We can use help in many areas of Portland, Salem and Eugene.
Major Events Helpers - Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest puts on several major events each year. These special events require a lot of manpower to move the materials from storage to the event site, setup of the events, and staffing. No experience is necessary for most aspects of this work, but you will be trained as needed.
Graphic Design Services - To help prepare our printed literature.
Creative Services - Greyhound Pet Adoption communicates to its members in a variety of print and online media. To facilitate these publications, we are always seeking help with photography, graphic design, writing, illustrations, painting, and other creative talents.
