Houston Pets Alive! (HPA!) is seeking a volunteer to assist with coordinating transportation for our dogs and cats when they are pulled from the shelter. Many times fosters agree to take an animal in, but are unable to get to the shelter before the close of business. Getting the dogs out of the shelter that day is essential since we pull from the euthanasia list. The transport coordinator's responsibilities would be to reach out to a team of volunteers willing to assist with transport, find someone for the job and coordinate with the shelter, transport volunteer and new foster parent. The Transport Coordinator would also assist with scheduling transportation for vet appointments as needed. This job can be done from home!
Houston Pets Alive! is a 501(c)3 animal rescue. We use proven success tactics from other no kill cities, like Austin, to fill in gaps where resources are needed the most. Our focus is on high volume, high quality adoptions, high volume, high quality spay and neuter, political advocacy and community education.
We currently help the pets who are at risk of being put to sleep in a shelter. We focus on animals who have been passed over by other rescue groups and shelters’ adoption programs and have no other option. Therefore, we are complimentary to other rescue efforts.
We look forward to hearing from you!
