Animal Advocacy & Action — Volunteer Interest Form

Volunteers are the heartbeat of Kinship Circle. Their stamina and creativity can accomplish so much for animals. We are a nonprofit with no paid staff that works on a collaborative basis with volunteers. We value your ideas and skills! Because our resources are so limited, this is true hands-on work for animals. If you are a self-initiator who can follow through on a case, we hope to hear from you.

  Public Relations & Press Aide

When we deployed to Japan after a mass earthquake-tsunami and nuclear meldown left thousands of animals stranded, big press coverage got us there. We are grateful for the help of New York publicist Patricia Jones. As a Kinship Circle press aide, you get Patricia’s tips on how to make animals make the news. The awareness and support generated from press stories can sometimes shape the outcome for animals!

  • Help send press releases to national and local media.
  • Assist in follow-up, arranging interviews and other media opportunities.
  • Represent Kinship Circle and its activities to the media.
