You can make a difference… as a Foster Coordination Liaison

We are looking for individuals who are interested in volunteering from home with Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet.

The “Foster Coordination Liaison” (FCL) position is a virtual volunteer role for us acting on behalf of the organization and responsible for assisting our Clients in recommending a potential foster home which closely emulates the pet(s) living environment and acting as the liaison between the legal military/veteran pet owner and the agreed Foster Home (Guardian Angel) to care for the pet(s) during the foster term.

Some of the states we need a FCL at this time involve CA, CO, AR, TX, FL, VA, MD/DC, IL, NJ, and New England states. Please note FCL as a virtual volunteer can coordinate more than 1 state. Great volunteer role for “stay-at-home” parents, disabled, and retired who have an understanding about our military and veteran communities.

Note: Do not have to reside in the state you are coordinating for.

Help Us “Raise the Roof” and Build a National Office

Since Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet began in January 2005, our “day-to-day operations” have been handled in the CEO’s residence (55-60% of home). Now in 2017 it is time we are working toward establishing an official “national office” to handle these operations with an actual volunteer “Admin Staff” to assist the organization’s CEO.

Today though we are waiting from an estimated cost for a 14’ x 30’ Leland “Chisholm Trail Cabin” from what we know we feel we are at the point that we can officially establish an official “Capital Campaign” to make this project a reality in order to raise $35,000.

Besides being able to have an “Admin Staff” having a separate building, we can meet with other volunteers involved with fundraising in Central TX for the other MVP Sanctuary projects; meet with members of the military and veteran communities and other interested parties. In addition we can plan for activities/events at the MVP Sanctuary.

Full details can be found on our website, including how you can get involved.
