PAWS Volunteers Picnic this Saturday!!!

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, February 06, 2008 at 8:08 PM

PAWS volunteers are going to give a treat to the shelter animals this Saturday in their first ever volunteer picnic!

Here's the official announcement:

To all PAWS Volunteers:

We know that a lot of you would want to reconnect with fellow volunteers, join the working Committees and visit the PAWS shelter again so we've come up with a Volunteer Picnic - which we plan to hold every second Saturday of the month, only between the hours of 10 am to 12noon.

The first PAWS Volunteer Picnic is this Saturday, February 9! =)

The PARC office will be too small to accommodate volunteers so a table and some plastic chairs will be set up somewhere on the grounds as an improvised assembly area.

The activities are nothing fancy. You may:
  1. Bring your own tuna or special food for the cats or dogs at the shelter for the "feeding session" which begins promptly at 10am.
  2. Walk shelter dogs or clean the shelter cats' ears.
  3. Meet up with Adoption Team members to help them in their work.
  4. Do gardening or tidying up around the shelter (Pls bring your own tools, garbage bags, etc).
Those who would want to work in animal areas, please remember to wear long pants and closed shoes- and to bring an extra shirt and padlock for your locker- as discussed in the Orientation.

Since there is no fastfood outlet or convenience store near PARC, please do pack your own snacks and drinks- and extra food to share with at least two fellow volunteers. =)

Due to limited space within the shelter and to avoid overcrowding, volunteers are requested to stay only up to 12noon on this day unless they have specific work to do around the animal shelter.

Thank you and see you at the Saturday picnic!!

Want to volunteer? Then please attend the next orientation on March 1, 2008 and we'll see you at the next picnic!

Thank you very much!

    Hello! You're very welcome to join the orientation on March 1. Just kindly print this form and fill it up and bring it to the orientation along with P200 for your PAWS I.D. and orientation materials. That's it, I guess. There's really no tough requirements in becoming a volunteer. PAWS does have a small web page about volunteering and you may want to read it:

    dear paws,
    i really wanted to become a volunteer of PAWS..
    the 1st time i have read about PAWS in the newspaper, i thought, why not become a volunteer..
    however, i am here in iligan city and i am a student..
    ive tried to send the volunteer application letter..
    i dont know if there are societies here like PAWS that helps in the protection of abused animals..
    i have been a witness in different abuses and maltreatment of animals here..
    in our school, they used cats to study anatomy...
    and hindi lang iisang pusa but marami kasi by pair ang pag-study...
    i really wanted to be part of the society...
    sana you have a branch here in mindanao..
    ill be the first one na mag-volunteer...
    God bless PAWS...
    and thank you...

    april

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ mefindhome.org if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. Blogger.com allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ mefindhome.org than to comment here. Thank you very much!
