Volunteer Help Needed This Week & Weekend!

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Volunteering

Calling all volunteers! We had an amazing turnout this past weekend to help with renovations at Town Lake Animal Center, but there’s still plenty of work to be done. Check out how you can help!

Who we need: We have projects for anyone with any skill set – the more hands, the better.

Note: While it’s not our only need, we are in great need of experienced labor workers – those with construction, moving, or renovation experience. But, don’t let the more labor intensive projects prevent anyone from helping out, as we have projects for everyone!

Major Projects:

  • Dog kennels: Sweeping, cleaning, and painting kennels – we are finished with one section, and have two others to do before the end of the month. The newly painted section looks amazing, and our dogs are very happy in there!
  • Vet Clinic: Clean, paint, and renovate old office space to be converted into our medical clinic.
  • Cat Buildings: Remove old enclosures, paint and clean, move in new enclosures and get the space organized. We not only need helping renovating the kitties’ homes, but re-purposing old storage space for use as adoption offices.
  • General fix-ups: Every space (not just those above) could sure stand to be cleaned, sanitized, and could use a fresh coat of paint.

What to bring: Closed toed shoes, wear comfy clothes people can get dirty, and bring any donations from our moving wish list. If people can even stop by Home Depot on the way over and grab a few paint rollers, trays, and some gallons of cleaning solution, that would be great.

How to get started: Just show up Saturday/Sunday anytime 10am-5pm and say you’re there to help with the renovations. If you’re available during the week, email email hidden; JavaScript is required and let us know when you’re available, and we’ll give you more info. We could definitely use help during the week too!
