New PetSmart Adoption Center Opens Volunteer Opportunities! Apply Today!

SNAP-2 IT is thrilled to announce our expanding partnership with PetSmart.  SNAP has been given the opportunity to establish a permanent SNAP adoption center in the PetSmart store located off of Howell Mill Road in Atlanta.  As you probably know, SNAP has shown adoptable pets every Saturday afternoon at the Buckhead PetSmart for the past two years.  While we will continue showing at the Buckhead location, having a new, permanent adoption center will allow us to not only broaden the reach of people exposed to the SNAP mission and adoption opportunities, but significantly ease some of the logistics around pet transportation, supplies and adoption pick-ups.

This expansion also opens up new volunteer slots in the SNAP organization.  SNAP is actively seeking applicants for several new volunteer opportunities:

Animal Caregivers:  Animal Caregivers are responsible for visiting the animals in the Howell Mill PetSmart adoption center, cleaning boxes and changing food and water every morning and every night.  This includes holidays even when PetSmart is closed for the day.  Although the time commitment is small, the need for reliability cannot be overemphasized.  The animals that live full-time in the adoption center rely on the Animal Caregivers for their daily needs.

We welcome split shifts if necessary. Let us know if you can help for a limited period of time (for example, twice a day for a week) or only at a certain time of day (early morning or early evening).

Adoption Volunteers:  Adoption Volunteers help the public meet our adorable, adoptable pets on the weekends at one of the PetSmart locations (N. Peachtree or Howell Mill).  Adoption Volunteers greet people who stop by to see our animals, answer general questions, share SNAP’s mission and invite the public to get involved even if they don’t adopt. Adoption Volunteers also take adoption applications, put together welcome packets, and play with the pets during the event!

Adoption Counselors:  Adoption Counselors are experienced rescue workers who screen adoption applications, ensure animal readiness, coordinate adoption logistics, and handle adoption fees.  Adoption Counselors may work at either location, and make home visits as needed.
