Special Events

Many people want to volunteer for our annual special events which are primarily fundraisers. A great special event's volunteer will be someone who keeps commitments for meetings, paperwork assignments, or other activities required to organize and host a special event.


Various events off the opportunity to orient people to what Heaven Can Wait Animal Society is and what we do. Tabling requires someone who can speak knowledgeably about the organization, solicit donations, and sell merchandise.  Also, requires some who enjoys being with people.  Good communication skills are necessary. Tabling can be done indoors or out at a variety of venues.

Volunteers are needed to call on businesses, veterinarian offices, hotels, stores, etc. to solicit items.  The skills required for this type of volunteer require an in-depth knowledge of Heaven Can Wait Animal Society, marketing/public relations, and excellent communication skills. The volunteer will work with members of the Fundraising Committee.
