Ways to help

Professional Services Volunteer

Pet Network does not receive any government funding and relies on the income from our internal businesses and ongoing fundraising efforts to reach our yearly, monthly and even daily financial goals. Professional services are often expensive, but necessary for any business to thrive. If you would like to donate your professional services in any capacity, we can use the money saved to further our mission of rescuing animals from euthanasia and ending the cycle of over population.

Relaxation Time Volunteer

Relaxation Time is just simply spending time with cat or dog. We request that volunteers simply sit with one animal at a time in a specific room such as the dog's kennel or shy cat camp, read them a book, play music, etc. and just allow the animal to relax in the company of a human. By doing this we are trying to replicate the "relaxation time" an animal receives from their humans while in a home. Relaxation time greatly improves the socilability and trust of a shy dog or cat.

Administrative Volunteer

Administrative volunteers can help with a variety of tasks throughout the year. We need help with sending out mailers, filing, data entry, making phone calls and event help. We also have PR opportunities available on radio or TV interviews for those who are talented public speakers and passionate about animals. We send out emails to interested volunteers several times a year when the need arises, so please let us know if you are interested.

Clicker Training Volunteer

Volunteers are needed to help with the training of dogs and cats in the shelter to ready them for adoption. Clicker training is a positive reinforcement method that rewards dogs and cats for completing tasks, making it easier for them to recognize the behaviors we want to see. Volunteers will receive training in the methods of clicker training if interested.

Second Chance Thrift Boutique Volunteer

Second Chance Thrift Boutique is a high-end, second hand store in Incline Village located inside Pet Network Humane Society. We have everything from clothing, including designer brands, to housewares, handbags, artwork and jewelry. You never know what kind of treasures you'll find here! Better yet, all proceeds from Second Chance benefit the animals at Pet Network! Positions include sales/cashier and sorting donations.

Photography Volunteer

A picture is worth a 1000 words. Photos are very important in the adoption of animals from a shelter. A great photograph of a dog or cat can help that animal find a loving home. Adopters do not want to see a picture of an animal in a cage or a kennel, they want to see a snapshot of what their future pet will look like on a run, a hike or frolicking on the beach. Adopters want to see smiling, tail wagging, happy dogs and cuddling, purring cats.

Events Volunteer

We host several events throughout the year at Pet Network and at various offsite locations. Events range from adoption and community events to fundraising events. It takes a dedicated team of people to pull off a successful event, and you’re help is greatly appreciated. Skills needed for these events are customer service, marketing, planning, designing and media relations just to name a few. The Volunteer Coordinator sends regular emails out to active volunteers to notify them of upcoming events and opportunities available.

Foster Care

Foster parents fulfill a critical component of Pet Network’s life-saving work. Anyone with the compassion and willingness to help animals-in-need can serve as a foster parent. Foster terms can range from a few days or weeks to a month or more, depending on the preferences of the foster parent and the needs of the animal. Foster homes are most needed for: animals who are sick, animals that have had a very long length of stay, animals who need socialization, pregnant moms or moms with nursing kittens or puppies, orphaned kittens and puppies, and animals too young for spay/neuter.

How you help At Pet Network, volunteers are crucial to the success of our organization and we could not accomplish our mission without them! Our volunteers range from students to seniors, and they bring a wide variety of talents and skills to their tasks. Pet Network Humane Society has placed more than 10,000 animals into loving homes!
About us Pet Network is a grass roots organization that was formed to eliminate the suffering of unwanted animals on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. It began with the efforts of volunteers who brought cats and dogs from the Tahoe Vista Shelter into their homes and cleaned, groomed, and fed them until they were restored to health and ready for adoption. Pet Network Humane Society envisions a world in which all companion animals experience love and respect as valued members of families and communities.
