HEY, COME VOLUNTEER WITH US!
WE NEED YOU!
We would absolutely love for you to come join us for our next clinic. First step is filling out this volunteer form. *
We have so very many needs even if you aren't trained in veterinary medicine. We will train you to do reception, discharge, puller of the wagon for our larger pups. Surgery instruments must be cleaned and packed throughout the day. We'll train you to do that too. Are you a vet tech elsewhere? We could really use you on our surgery team working with the best veterinarians. And, of course, if you are a veterinarian we would love having you for any amount of days you can volunteer. It can be a fast paced environment but with a team effort we are able to pull it off every single time. So come join us. Because Every Animal Deserves Kindness and we need you to help us make that promise a reality!
For the upcoming clinics in June:
We ask that you arrive on May 31st or June 1st no later than 7pm if possible. We do understand some of you have to work or flight schedules are not accommodating for this time frame, but it is helpful to our volunteer coordinator Tiffany McBee if you can arrange flights before 7pm. We will pick up and transport back to the airport. You are absolutely welcome to rent your own vehicles. You will have access to get to the store etc...HPAB will pay for accomodations, continental breakfast and lunches will be provided on work days. We will also transport to and from clinic's. Ubers are available to housing accommodations from the airport. You will all be staying in Placitas NM.
First time volunteers we are not able to provide airfare at this time due to rebounding back from our medical trailer being stolen. PLEASE NOTE::::: THIS IS A FIELD/MASH STYLE CLINIC. You will not have your own bedrooms you may have an airbed but the accommodations are very nice you will not be disappointed. HPAB has an amazing team of kind, compassionate, hard working volunteers. We have been at this for 17 years and we have volunteers that have been with us up to 14 years and come back 2 or 3 times a year. I say this because we love our volunteers and you all become family if you're not already.
I will assign work positions so we ask that you be flexible.We will provide new volunteers with 2 tee shirts. We ask that you wear them each day with scrub pants and enclosed shoes. Once you have been approved to attend our clinic adventure we will invite you to a private fb page. This page is where we put everything for the clinic, phone numbers , addresses, everything clinic related is here. I will need you to fb friend me so I can invite you when it is time.
You will fly into Albuquerque International Airport (ABQ). There is also an airport in Santa Fe NM but it is generally more expensive. If I manage to get a grant for airfare I will split between the volunteers accordingly but this time I don't see that happening after our huge loss of our medical trailer. All transportation be it flights, driving and length of stay should be emailed to Tiffany McBee. Anything else please direct to myself (Angie Cherry) at email@example.com.
Now for the other stuff. There will be karaoke nights but you do not have to participate. Alcohol is fine but bring your own. No alcohol ever on the pueblos. Just know you will be scared by someone or something at some point muahahaha. Bring your own pillows, personal items. Bedding and airbeds will be provided. MUST BRING SENSE OF HUMOR. Must have crazy pajamas or crazy socks. If this sounds good to you and you think you want to give it a try, please all veterinarians contact Angie Cherry at email above. All other valuable souls contact Tiffany Mcbee. Once we get Veterinarians on board then we will begin with the staffing volunteers.
Thanks for your interest in HPAB
