PAWS New England is seeking a TN liaison that will coordinate all rescue activities from Tipton County Animal Control in Brighton, TN. The TN Liaison has a life-saving role working on the "front lines" of animal rescue. Responsibilities include:
-Working closely with staff at Tipton County Animal Control to pull dogs facing euthanasia
-Coordinating veterinary care with our partner vets and foster families
-Collaborating with other PAWS NE volunteers to arrange transport for adopted animals to their homes in New England
-General oversight of all pups (typically 15-25) located in a handful of foster homes in the Brighton, TN area (confirming vaccine history/ spay/neuter status/ microchipped etc)
-Assisting in new foster homes and volunteers for the shelter
-Participation in local animal welfare advocacy projects
The TN liaison serves an vital role in saving the lives of dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. It is hard and emotionally demanding work, but there is no greater feeling than watching a dog whose life you saved embark on a great life with an adoptive family. This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to pursue a career in animal welfare. PAWS New England is a well-organized and successful organization with a wonderful group of volunteers! We have saved the lives of 5,500 dogs and are looking for a talented, compassionate, organized, and detail oriented new team member.
