Please read the following volunteer description to see if volunteering with My Pit Bull is Family is the right opportunity for you!
About The Organization
My Pit Bull is Family is a national 501c3 non-profit working to unite all animal lovers with one goal: To end housing and insurance discrimination for dogs & their families. We do this by providing the nation’s largest housing database that accepts all dogs, having critical conversations with property management companies, community outreach & education, and by providing training to law enforcement on canine interactions.
We started in 2011, when a Minneapolis landlord realized that her rentals were part of the select few rentals that allowed all dogs. She launched a bumper sticker campaign with a small team of volunteers in Minneapolis. Since then we have continued to grow! We now have a team of 60+ volunteers across the country and we’re always looking to continue adding to our team!
About Our Volunteers
My Pit Bull is Family volunteers share our work in communities across the country. As a volunteer, you will be an important member of our team and act as a representative of our organization to the community at large. As such, we need people with great communication skills because our volunteers will be talking to people about our organization online, over the phone, and in-person.
The primary responsibility of our volunteers is to make phone calls every month to participate in rental pet policy research. We will be selecting cities across the country to conduct research in. The information collected will identify all-breed-friendly housing for families looking for rental accommodations that will welcome their dogs. With accurate information available, the goal is for no dog to be displaced from their family due to restrictive pet policies and to keep the family together safe at home.
Our volunteers also participate in many community events and fundraisers throughout the year. We encourage volunteers to participate in as many events as they can and to come up with creative ideas for the future.
