Our Virtual Volunteers are in constant contact with our Partner Shelters and manage all our FurKidz listings. They know all our FurKidz, the anxious newcomers, the patiently waiting longtermers, the sad re-turners and of course the happy home-goers.

Our Virtual Volunteers keep all of us in the loop, they are caring and compassionate go-getters who tell the stories of South Africa's shelter dogs and cats.

If you would like to do the same, click here to see which vacancies we currently have and choose the one that suits you best, we would love to hear from you!

 

Our Vacancies

Help 1000’s of shelter animals right from your desk!


Do you have a strong desire to help animals, but don’t have the funds to help financially or the time to be involved at the coal face? Here is a way to really and sincerely help, without taking financial or (too much) emotional strain.

Become a Virtual Volunteer!

Choose one our partner shelters and take responsibility for their dogs and cats by keeping their listings accurate and up to date. Add new dogs and cats that have just arrived at the shelter, tell their stories and make them seen. Ensure that these abandoned beings only spend a minimal time of their lives at the shelter and increase their chance of finding a loving forever home. Monitor the adoption success, tell our visitors about the latest adoptions and keep up to date with all the happenings at your shelter, so their efforts don’t go to waste, but can be celebrated.

All it takes is a few minutes a day or a few hours each week. You can help wherever you are, a PC/tablet and internet is all you need to help change the fortunes of SA’a shelter animals.

Our mission: To help the 1000’s of shelter animals across SA

Our goal: To make each and every single one heard and seen

Our method: One collective, comprehensive, easily searchable platform 

We have come far in our mission, but there is still much more to do! South Africa’s FurKidz need YOU!
