EVENTS

Cuse Pit Crew will be holding various events throughout the year and will need energetic and personable volunteers that are willing to plan, set up, and assist at these events.

FUNDRAISING

In order to be effective in reaching our mission, we will need volunteers who have strong communication skills, demonstrate initiative and are willing to make contact with individuals and businesses by telephone, email and in-person to solicit donations and/or sponsorships, as well as sell merchandise and apparel, among other fundraising activities.

MARKETING

If you have experience in advertising, public relations, social media, web design, or other marketing-related activities, please consider volunteering with our marketing team.

HUMANE EDUCATION

If you feel comfortable speaking in front of groups, we will need volunteers willing to provide humane education presentations to schools and other community organizations. Those who like researching and preparing presentations would also be well suited for this volunteer area.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We need outgoing, professional people who would like to reach out to community organizations to inform them about Cuse Pit Crew and determine ways that we can collaborate together to ultimately reach the mission and goals of all organizations involved.

GRANT WRITING

For those with a knack for researching and writing, this would be an area for you. We need dedicated individuals who are willing to research grant opportunities and work with the Board of Directors to put together the required information to apply for such grants.

POLITICAL ACTION

A huge part of fulfilling our mission is working to change current legislation surrounding such things as stricter punishments for animal cruelty, reversing bans on “bully breeds” and stricter dog fighting laws. If you are passionate about making change, please consider being part of our Political Action team.
