Volunteer with OPIN: Pound Around Town
Carla and her Pound Around Town (PAT) team began "pounding" around town on Dec. 8, 2008. Since then, the PAT team has raised thousands of dollars and educated thousands of residents about Stamford Animal Care & Control and OPIN.
PAT tables over the weekends at local hot spots with photos of our adoptables, information on SACC/OPIN/adopting, merchandise for sale, and a donation box. Volunteers sign up for shifts and are always in pairs.
It's a fantastic way to volunteer if you enjoy talking to people, or prefer to sit while volunteering. The impact that Carla's team has made is material, so it's a highly effective, low-commitment way to make a difference!
If you'd like to help with PAT, contact Carla at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for more helping hands!
