I can help with events. I’m a great organizer and can help with event planning. I can help with adoption outings (such as manning a table at local retailers and events) and spreading the word about Caring For Creatures. I am interested in researching grant opportunities. I love to bake for bake sales. I have seamstress skills - we need help with bandana-making, and cutting and hemming blankets for the dogs.
