Bill Foundation looks to the community and volunteers to help keep its door open. We are currently looking for volunteers to work the adoptions fairs as well as non-adoption projects, which can be completed from your home or at our office.
If you would like to help out, donating your time and in-kind services can involve activities such as the following:
Print and coordinate the notebooks placed in vet’s offices and around town featuring the current BF rescues up for adoption on Petfinder.
Each month BF sends out cards and donation requests to past adopters. This is an ongoing project and involves stuffing envelopes, which can be done from home!
On each crate at the adoption fair are laminated bios of the particular dog, which supply information to potential adopters. Cards are updated on a regular basis. We’ll supply the laminating machine, paper and ink.
Sunday Adoption Fairs
Your time a few hours every other weekend helping us with our pet adoption days will enable us to save and care for more dogs.
Responsibilities include setting up crates, walking dogs, showing dogs to the public and breaking down crates and cleanup. If you’d like to stop by a fair and get a first-hand look, we invite you to come check out the fair, which is held every Sunday at the Healthy Spot, located at 1110 Wilshire in Santa Monica.
*Sorry, we can’t accept volunteers under 21 years of age.
We are in great need of foster homes for our rescues. Our first choice is to place our new rescues in foster homes rather than to board them. Not only does it save the expense of boarding but we get to know the dog and can then match them with the perfect person. If you are interested in helping one of our rescues transition into his new life, please click here to see our Foster A Dog Section of our website.
Pet Taxi If you would like to help transport dogs from vets, shelters, owners, or rescue groups give us a call.
We are always in need of he
lp in the fundraising department. If you have experience as a fundraiser for non-profit organizations, we can use your help. If you would like to organize a fundraising event, we could use your help. Any and all ideas are welcome. We also need help with Flyer circulation announcing special events–posting them & keeping them current. We also like to put up flyers at veterinary clinics and pet stores featuring current adoptable dogs.
We are always in need of volunteers who posses organizational abilities–data entry, filing, cross-indexing, communications; those who can help with our mailings, database and record keeping. If you have any office skills, or just nice penmanship, you can help.
We are also in need occasionally of expert advice in legal matters and contracts. We also need help with printing, publications, accounting, editing, and skilled labor.
We are also looking for someone experienced in the grant writing area of fundraising. Currently, most of our funds are from private donations from caring individuals and our adoption fee donations. If you can help us in this area, we need you ASAP!
