PAWS Chicago
Volunteer (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 6, 2013
Pros: love animals, rewarding
Cons: can become expensive, can be physically draining
Volunteer opportunity, spend time with puppies and kittens when I have extra time and money. Going to school currently for veterinary technician and this gives me added experiences, and reminds me of what I’m working towards. I am a bleeding heart for animals, and this is a wonderful no kill shelter that is very under staffed and functions mostly with – more... the help from volunteers, and donations from the community. Everything they receive goes directly back into the facility to save homeless pets. – less

Database and Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 11, 2012
As a Database and Administrative Assistant at PAWS Chicago, I ensure that the day-to-day operations of the office run smoothly. I answer the main phone line, and help individuals with many needs, ranging from taking donations to helping individuals with animal behavior advice. I answer inquiries about the No-Kill movement, and PAWS Chicago. I also handle – more... matching donations from corporations, reconcile all credit card transactions processed, and input donations into our Raiser's Edge Database.

I also oversee PAWS Chicago's Tribute Card program - I take tribute donation information, and send cards as requested. I send donors acknowledgments, and thank them for their support of our cause and organization. I also monitor donations, sending thank-you cards to those who requested donations in lieu gifts, or in memorandum of loved ones in lieu of flowers.

I ensure that potential and current donors feel appreciated for supporting PAWS, and help understand more about the No-Kill movement. – less
