Becoming a case manager is great for people who:
Want to work with a family one on one
Need a flexible volunteer schedule
Are compassionate and can talk to people they don't agree with
As a case manager, you will essentially adopt a family, dogs and people, with the ultimate goal of helping that dog live a better life.
Sometimes (a lot of the time) you won't agree with the people, but that's OK. We are all different and grew up in different circumstances. You have to be able to talk to them, treat them like people, and see their obstacles so that you can truly help the dog.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We will work with you and match you with a family.
You will befriend the dog’s guardian and encourage them to see their dog(s) for what they are, sensitive animals that can feel. Don’t be afraid to offer help if need be, a walk, occasional bag of food. Your goal is to try and show the person that the dog is worth taking care of and that you care about their situation!
If you suspect animal cruelty or neglect, we will help you. We have been working with ACO's in our area for a long time and know when it's time to bring them in. The laws are confusing, and we are very familiar with them, so use us!
In some situations, you are these dog's only voice. If you aren't sure how to talk to your family, we can help you.
