Anyone who has a love for animals and volunteering then A New Dawn Pet Adoption is the place to be.
A New Dawn is looking for dependable, dedicated, animal loving people who would like to spend a couple of hours a week taking care of cats and dogs while they wait to find their permanent home.
This facility was founded by Dawn Kubisz, and just like the volunteers, she receives no salary for her work. It exists by donations including monetary, food and supplies. This is a cageless facility with every dog having their own room with bed, toys, food, water and a picket fence for a door. Cats are housed in a large cattery room with their necessities. All of the animals are exercised daily and able to socialize with other animals along with the volunteers. None of the animals at A New Dawn will be euthanized and will remain in the facility until they are adopted.
They would like to have enough volunteers to be able to split the shifts. Right now they have shifts from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. A crew is needed for Sunday to help clean and feed the animals while the shelter is closed.
Duties for volunteers include cleaning up rooms, feeding the animals, take them on walks, etc. Additional opportunities include special events on Saturday such as pet adoption days at PetSmart and Petco in Pasadena.
Volunteers need to be 18 and older, however, anyone under 18 may still volunteer with a parent present.
