Special Projects and Professional Skills

We have a wide range of professional needs.  Every hour of pro-bono consulting results in saved money that can then go towards saving cats and dogs.

  1. If you have skills in writing and journalism we could use your help in writing press releases and posting on social media.
  2. Marketing professionals are a great need for us at AnimalKind. Marketers are needed for creating marketing plans, graphics, and advertisements.
  3. Carpentry and/or construction volunteers are needed frequently at ReTails Thrift Shop.
