Vet Care/PAW Express Transport
Because their “pawrents” are homebound, we need pet lovers to help adorable cats and dogs see the vet for basic and preventative care. Veterinary services are scheduled for alternating Tuesdays. Volunteers are asked to transport 1-2 pets from the client's home to the vet and/or from the vet to the client's home. Volunteers do not need to remain at the vet with the pet.
Togetherness volunteers provide weekly well-check phone calls, text, facetime - however you and the client decide is most convenient for the two of you. This program helps clients experiencing isolation, loneliness, and lack of social support connect with a volunteer to build a friendship and social connection. You can volunteer from the comfort of your own home, on a schedule you and the client find convenient.
