SPECIAL EVENTS Special events volunteers represent the League for Animal Welfare at off-site and shelter events. Some events like our Wine & Whiskers, Tasting & Auction, our annual Holiday Party or our Annual Picnic, on the grounds of the shelter, are held to raise money. Others help raise awareness and educate the public about the mission of the League and the animals available for adoption at the shelter
MOBILE ADOPTION VAN EVENTS The League for Animal Welfare’s Mobile Adoption Van allows us to take our animals from the shelter environment out into the community, increasing chances for adoption into loving homes. It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to keep the Adoption Van on the road. Mobile Adoption Van volunteers must attend the League’s general orientation first. Animal handlers must also attend the appropriate specialized orientation before they are allowed to handle a dog or cat.
Wow. Doesn't it seem like we've had a lot of stunning cats lately? MarshMellows is only a bit over a year old, but he's very new to the League! The staff and volunteers are still getting to know him, but in the meantime, we thought you might like to admire this handsome guy. Check back for a bio soon
Some people might not know just how fantastic our fosters are! Here's a pic of Megan and David, longtime League volunteers and fosters, visiting the Cincinnati Nature Center this past week as an outing for their current foster, Lance (in the vest), along with their adopted League Alumni Dog, Kaidie. We really appreciate everything our foster families do to make for a stimulating and loving temporary home for our animals!
Founded in 1949, the League for Animal Welfare is a leader in the field of animal welfare in the Greater Cincinnati area. Over the last 64 years, we have nurtured and cared for thousands of homeless and abused animals and placed them in loving adoptive homes. We continue to exist because of individuals like you who are passionate about giving companion animals the care and quality of life they deserve.
SPECIALIZED DOG ORIENTATION If you are interested in working with dogs, the specialized dog training covers how to safely interact with dogs and fellow volunteers while handling the dogs. Dog training is available on two different days: Sunday following the general orientation or the following Saturday. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (513)-735-2299 or, you can check it out on our website. http://www.lfaw.org/volunteer/animal-shelter-volunteers/
