      We are always looking for volunteers to help out around the kennels. We are open every morning 7 days a week from 8AM - noon. We have a shift of volunteers in every morning to look after the cats and dogs: cleaning, feeding, grooming, walking, laundry, vet runs, administering medications and of course putting dogs out in outdoor runs and walking them. We walk the dogs every day, unless the weather is really, really bad (i.e. too cold or just plain dangerous). We also have evening dog walkers who are paired up for safety reasons (don't want people out at the shelter alone) and they walk dogs or put them out for a stretch in outdoor pens, administer any necessary evening medications and/or extra feeds to cats or dogs and clean up any kennels that have messes.  
       
      We do ask volunteers to try and commit to a period of time on a regular basis (e.g. a particular morning/evening every week or every other week) as it makes it easier for scheduling and also keeps the volunteer familiar to the animals they are caring for. With the dogs, this makes a big difference. We have some dogs that are with us for a while before finding a forever home so we try to have them handled by people they know as much as possible.

      Bridget's Bunnies Pregnancy and Infant Loss Foundation

Bridget’s Run takes place each year on the Saturday following Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day (October 15th). 
       
      We are looking for volunteers to join our sponsorship committee to engage and connect with past and potential sponsors to help us reach our fundraising goal for our 2022 Bridget’s Run.  
       
      If you’re the type of person that loves connecting with people, you’re driven by results, and know how to get someone motivated this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! This committee is integral to the continued improvement and growth of the impact Bridget’s Bunnies is creating in the community.  
       
      Does this make you squeamish? Don’t worry, there are also lots of responsibilities behind the scenes that don’t require connecting with business owners! 
       
      Responsibilities  
      > acquiring local monetary and in-kind sponsorship, 
      recruiting and building relationships with new sponsors 
      > ensuring sponsor obligations are fulfilled 
      > ensuring sponsors feel a sense of partnership with Bridget's Bunnies 
      > Check in with and re-engage with sponsorship leads on a regular basis 
      > Track and update all sponsorship requests 
      > Respond to questions about the run 
      > Have conversations, learn about our sponsors, and leave them with an amazing experience so they feel seen and appreciated 
      > Pitch downsell/upgrade packages as appropriate 
       
      Ultimately we will train you on the details of what we do here at Bridget’s Bunnies, but you’ll already be equipped with a positive attitude and a true passion for supporting families!  
       
      What it looks like to volunteer with us: 
       
      Your volunteer commitment is flexible and will be tailored to match the commitment that you are personally able to provide to the sponsorship committee. Volunteers are required to attend regular committee meetings (held virtually) every 3-4 weeks in addition to the time required to fulfill agreed upon commitments.
