At the end of the year, GRRAND’s current foster and behavior evaluation coordinator will be resigning. We are looking to build a team of volunteers to conduct behavior assessments on rescued dogs entering GRRAND’s program. This team will work closely with Linda George, GRRAND’s incoming Foster Coordinator, starting January 1, 2018, to conduct timely evaluations at GRRAND’s kennel in Lyndon. Ideally, GRRAND would like to have a core team of trained volunteers that could rotate during the week to ensure that assessments are completed soon after a new intake arrives at the kennel.
If you are interested in helping in this capacity, please email Nina Scott at email@example.com, by December 10. GRRAND will then schedule and host a training session led by one of our area’s best and most experienced dog trainers to ensure our behavior volunteers know how to conduct proper behavior assessments to address a range of behaviors, including resource guarding, dog reactivity, and handling sensitivity so that recommendations can be made for suitable home environments. Interested volunteers do not need to have experience with behavior management, but will need to have an understanding of dogs and be able to read dog behavior and signals. This is a critical component of our rescue work, and we are excited to strengthen our program through the creation of this new team of behavior volunteers.
Louisville Transportation Volunteers Needed!
GRRAND is looking for a volunteer to help coordinate local transports of dogs from the kennel or from foster homes to vet appointments and back to the kennel or to their foster homes. This is a volunteer job that will require some phone work and coordination with foster families and GRRAND’s vet coordinator. If you might be interested in helping with this important role for GRRAND or would like more information about what this job could entail, please contact Jane Sonntag (firstname.lastname@example.org
