Suggestion for another database category in help needed

Post by K9Karma on Fri Jul 25, 2008 3:29 am

At present there are 3 categories - fostering, transport, homechecking.

I think a lot of rescues could benefit from a fourth category being added - Administration & Fund Raising.

The first 3 categories are very much hands on - the tasks which are undertaking in physically helping an animal find a new home. But the fouth is also essential and often gets forgotten or overlooked because it is not "front line action". These tasks are however however important to keep a rescue running particularly if it is a small independant one. In this field also a volunteer can be housebound but if they have internet access can be a valuable asset to a rescue in a number of ways. There are a lot of people out there who would love to help but either due to disability, old age or personal circumstances can't participate in the first three anymore but still want to contribute their time to help out. By taking the admin work load off the more physically active members of the rescue it frees them up to achieve more.

Perhaps rescues would like to add their views.

Obviously up to ADMIN to decide ultimately whether it is worth doing.

Maybe instead of a new database category, there could be a sticky within the 'fundraising for rescues' or 'rescue appeals' section where people could post a template saying what they can help with, what kind of skills they have (e.g accounts, typing, graphic design), how much time they have spare etc.?

Then if a rescue needed some admin/fundraising help, either regularly, or just for a one off thing like for an event, then they could PM the people who've volunteered there.

Do you think rescues would use this? Can anyone from a rescue give an opinion?
