Are you interested in coordinating our special events? We need an organized, enthusiastic and outgoing Event Planner who can work on special events, including our annual public meeting.
Writing and Research:
Do you have a knack for persuasive writing? GMAD likes to stay visible in the media, and getting letters to the editor published is the perfect means to do so! Write articles as assigned by GMAD or spearhead your own research and writing project surrounding a topic that interests you. Articles may be used in our newsletter or submitted as editorials to newspapers.
Education and Outreach:
Take your passion for animal protection to the streets! Work as an ambassador for GMAD by working at an educational table. Tabling is done on Church Street, at the local colleges, and at community events. Outreach topics span a wide range of animal welfare issues such as factory farming, the importance of spay and neuter, and the plight of homeless animals to name a few (delete this).
Due to GMAD's robust agenda of events throughout the year, we always need funds to assist in successfully executing these campaigns! We also rely on these funds to help us continue to sponsor spay & neuters for needy cats and dogs in our community. Bring your own talents and ideas or contribute to our existing fundraising efforts such as bake sales, raffles, silent auctions and yard sales.
Media Design/Updating/Social Media (i.e. web and facebook):
GMAD needs webmasters to help update and maintain our invaluable internet resources. Keep webpage news and events up to date, recruit facebook members and use facebook as a means of advertising GMAD campaigns and events.
Help transport, rehabilitate, and provide homes for sick, injured, or homeless animals. Some wildlife needs veterinary care, while other transports may be domestic animals in need of loving companions. Our heroic transport team is directly involved in improving the lives of animals and people alike.
Contribute your energy and passion for animals to our protest events. In 2010, the voices of GMAD demonstrators were heard at the Champlain Valley Fair's Niger Tiger and Lion Show; the show has been cancelled for the 2011 fair. Other activist possibilies include anti-vivisection at local colleges, fur awareness demonstrations outside major clothing retailors, and free soy ice cream giveaways to promote veganism!
Develop Your Own Campaign:
Can you think of an advocacy opportunity not on this list? Create your own campaign surrounding an area of animal protection (such as fois gras, animal research at local universities, Champlain Valley endangered species, or a topic that is important to you!). Work with our volunteer coordinator to get your ideas implemented!
