favorite this post Earn $, Save Lives, Meet Cute Kitties...by Driving! hide this posting unhide

Our rescue group is looking for "paid volunteers" to help with occasional long-distance driving gigs. These include: picking fosters up from kill-shelters or unsafe environments and bringing them to our headquarters; taking our fosters to vet appointments (only driving is required in these cases, not consultations with vet or staff); and, most joyously of all, bringing fosters who have found forever homes to their new loving families. The fosters are usually kittens or cats, but may be dogs, rabbits, ducks, piglets, or other species, and all would be driving in your car in their crates or cages. All you provide is the driving and the vehicle, and all of your gas and tolls expenditures are reimbursed in addition to the hourly pay that you get. This hourly pay ranges from $12-20 an hour, depending on how much you can help us out with our expenses. Paying drivers a lower rate helps to save us money for our rescue needs. In general, these trips might have you driving from 3 to 10 hours, so if you are not comfortable with longer trips, please let us know and we will reserve you for shorter trips.

If you are interested, please write in with the following information: Please tell us something about your car or vehicle and the length of trip (in terms of hours) you would like to be asked to do. Please also let us know how much lead time you would need, in order to be able to prepare for your trip. Please bear in mind that you are not likely to be asked to do these trips more than once a month, and possibly less frequently than that. Please be sure to let me know what the fastest and most reliable way to reach you is, so that I can go to work lining you up when a rescue mission or an adoption arises. ONCE YOU WRITE IN, I WILL WRITE YOU BACK REQUESTING THAT WE SWAP REFERENCES. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO THIS, PLEASE DON'T WRITE IN AT ALL. This is so I can assure adopter, whose private homes you may be going to, that I have checked a reference for you, and so you, for your part, can be assured that I am a legitimate rescuer really doing the work I say I am doing. Please be sure to provide us with the quickest way to reach you when a job comes up and we need to have a driver in place. These trips will often involve going out of state. Please consider, if you don't already have one, setting up a PayPal account or providing us with another online way to pay you; we cannot pay cash.
