During the first few weeks of your internship with Rescue P.A.W.S., you will become familiar with the organization from the ground up by assisting in animal care along with the volunteers, which will include tasks such as dog feeding runs, kennel maintenance, working with the local community to educate locals about proper animal care, and assist with veterinary procedures. Once you have a greater understanding of the organization, you will begin working on self-directed projects and day-to-day marketing responsibilities. We want this internship to be exactly what you want it to be and to give you the experience that you would like to be able to add to your resume, which is why interns are given so much creative freedom when it comes to the work they do once they arrive at Rescue P.A.W.S. If you have an idea that you think will help Rescue P.A.W.S., we want you to do it!

Assisting the directors with various marketing and management projects
Developing promotional and program-related material for Rescue P.A.W.S.
