Colorado Lost & Found Pets Facebook page is looking for volunteers WHO USE COMPUTERS.
The work we do cannot be done on a smart phone, unless you want to volunteer to call people who have lost dogs to give them advice. Our tasks require a computer unless you are very skilled with your smart phone/tablet
This form is to get your contact info. You will hear from the Volunteer Coordinator after you submit this application. We will get back to you as soon as possible but we are an all volunteer group and may not respond immediately. If you do not hear back in a couple of days message the page.
Our volunteer tasks include posting flyers on FaceBook, contacting people on Craigslist and personally helping families who have lost their dogs or cats (caseworking). We would also like to have people who do Instagram or Pinterest. Depending on the volunteers we have, certain jobs are open at certain times. You will be provided more details in the follow-up e-mail / Facebook message.
Thank you! WE NEED YOU!
Tell us what you want to do and why you would be a good fit for Colorado Lost & Found Pets?
IMPORTANT! Please read. Your submission indicates your willingness to abide by these guidelines. Colorado Lost & Found Pets Facebook Page is modeled after very successful pages for Texas, Illinois and Wisconsin and works with Helping Lost Pets who provide posters and flyers as well as a text message service and post to twitter, all at no charge to pet parents. We solicit reports from families who have lost pets or Good Samaritans who have found pets and post that information so it can be seen by as many people as possible. CO L&F is NOT a page that cross posts for pets in rescue or shelters, dogs in need, or dogs needing foster. We are STRICTLY a page for Lost or Found pets.
Our policy is not to judge how a dog was lost or the quality of life the dog had. Therefore we do not comment or allow others to comment on, for example, spay/neuter status, chip status, or if the dog was leashed – left in a car, etc. Usually the family is now acutely aware of their mistakes and it is not our job to point them out. We help out everyone who lost a pet, no matter the reason they had the pet – providing it was not for an illegal purpose of course.
We are here to encourage, educate and help people who are looking for their pet and it is solely their decision on how long they look and how they do it.
It is our belief that far fewer pets are abandoned (dumped) than is believed. We want to change this mindset because it prevents people from searching for the family when they find a dog or cat. Therefore we do not speculate on whether a dog or cat was dumped, nor do we use or allow such language.
Thank you for your time and interest in Colorado Lost & Found Pets. Volunteers are the only reason we are able to do this. Whether or not the post you make actually is the one that gets a dog home, you are part of the bigger picture that, when completed, gets all lost dogs home – support from family, friends and caring strangers.
THANK YOU for your interest in joining the Colorado Lost & Found Pets Team!
