PAWS Humane Society Board of Directors Position Openings

PAWS Humane Society in Rockford, IL is looking for highly-motivated and talented people to join the organization’s Board of Directors. 

Ideal candidates will have expertise in both fundraising and event management.  As a new member of the PAWS Board of Directors, these skills are needed to help coordinate and lead some of the organization’s biggest events, including our annual Fur Ball celebration.

While those skills are ideal, they are not necessary.  We are simply looking for candidates who are willing to lend their time and energy to a cause that is so important to the well-being of animals in our area.  If you are dedicated to making a difference in our community and are ready to play a leading role, we would be interested in talking with you about joining our organization.

PAWS is a volunteer organization, supported solely by donations.  In order to promote, support and provide for the humane treatment and welfare of animals in northern Illinois, we need to bring in money from numerous events and donors throughout the year.  As a new board member, we hope that you can lead those events and help provide the organization with more opportunities than ever before.

This is a hands-on position, not just a governing board spot.  As a board member you will be highly involved in volunteering as well as fundraising and event management.  If you have a passion for this type of volunteer work and feel you are the right person for this position, please let us know!

Interested candidates can click here to fill out the application. Email your completed application to info@pawshs.org.

Deadline for submission is Friday, December 26, 2014. Voting will take place at the PAWS Humane Society Monthly Board Meeting, Monday, January 5th, in the Foundation Room of OSF St. Anthony Hospital, at 6:30 p.m.

More on PAWS Humane Society:

PAWS Humane Society was founded in 1988. Our mission is to promote, support, and provide for the humane treatment and welfare of animals in Winnebago County and the surrounding areas. We work towards a day when there is a home for every pet and domestic animals are no longer euthanized simply because they have no home. 

PAWS is a volunteer organization, supported solely by donations. Our organization strives to prevent animal suffering.  Domesticated animals, especially cats, are so plentiful they are not always valued. We envision a day when everyone understands the importance of controlling pet overpopulation and does their part to ensure that domesticated animals are not suffering or being discarded simply because there is no one to love and care for them.
