We understand that not everyone can foster a dog in their home, however there are many roles that volunteers can take to contribute in a meaningful way to Chihuahua Rescue Queensland.
Other roles on the CRQ team include:
Transport Volunteers – Transporting foster dogs to and from shelters, vet visits and meet and greets as needed.
Home Check Volunteers – Visiting the homes of potential adopters and foster carers and completing a simple and non-intrusive check list to help identify suitable homes for our rescue dogs.
Photographers – Meeting up with foster carers to take photos for adoption profiles and the website. Good, clear photos are an integral part of getting each dog adopted.
Email and Social Media Volunteers – Assisting by checking the email account, social media messages and responding to simple enquiries. Assisting with the ongoing running of the CRQ Facebook page including communicating and interacting with page followers and supporters, responding to comments and questions, posting photos and updates and monitoring page activity.
Administration Assistants – Supporting the CRQ secretary with administration duties such as collating spreadsheets and databases for foster dogs, adoption enquiries, waiting lists and other computer based tasks.
Fundraising Volunteers – Supporting the CRQ team by participating in fundraising events including online auctions, bake sales and bbqs, events, and assisting the CRQ Fundraising Coordinator.
Event Volunteers – Attending adoption events to assist with caring for the dogs for the duration of the event. This involves walking them, supervising interactions with meet and greets, monitoring stress levels and giving food, water, cuddles and lots of love.
These are just a few of the many ways you can be involved with Chihuahua Rescue Queensland. If you have other ideas of ways you would like to contribute to the team, we welcome offers of help and support and are always grateful to hear from those who would like to invest their time and efforts into this rescue group.
