Spay/Neuter Clinic Transport (Snip Trip) Coordinator
We are looking for a volunteer in Loudoun County who can help to organize and run a monthly transport of cats and eventually dogs to a low cost spay/neuter clinic. The transport van comes to the Leesburg area for pick up and return of the animals. We are looking to expand this transport to include pets of Loudoun County Residents. The volunteer will be assisted by the HSLC Spay/Neuter Program Manager to perform the following tasks
1.) Establish a monthly schedule of transports to the spay/neuter clinic
2.) Assist with building a comprehensive online sign up form and tracking system
3.) Identify new drop off and pick up location in Loudoun County
4.) Develop print outs for forms and carrier stickers to ensure safe tracking and transport of animals
5.) Be on site for morning pick up and return of animals
6.) Work with pet owners to address questions and provide schedules
7.) Define billing process, reporting and payment collection
Time Commitment – several hours a week and 2 early weekday mornings a month
How will you make an impact in the community? – By building this program from the ground up you will be creating an opportunity for our community to make sure their pets are spayed or neutered and vaccinated at an extremely reasonable rate. Every day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born and every year 6-8 million animals enter our shelters and nearly half are euthanized. Spay and neuter is the only 100% effective way to prevent more unwanted litters of pets from being born.
