Foothills Animal Rescue has 175 pets at its shelter in north Scottsdale and an additional 50 in foster homes.
A volunteer organization, the shelter at 23030 N. Pima Road has a core of 40 volunteers who work once or twice a week. But shelter director Dawn Kavanaugh said there’s a need for 100 to 125 more volunteers to make the non-profit effective.
Jobs include adoption counselor, adoption assistant, office assistant, animal-care assistant, cat-room attendant, dog-room attendant, foster-care providers and people to help in the clinic. Volunteers with expertise in marketing, web design or animal health also are needed.
