Offsite and Fundraising Events

People for Animals – Social Media Ambassadors

PFA invites you to participate in extending our reach into the community by becoming a Social Media Ambassador. You can help raise awareness of our services and programs on social media and at the same time, raise our awareness of you, our supporter. #PFAambassador

Become a Social Media Ambassador
Ambassadorship is one way to volunteer for PFA – no application required! Simply sign up to receive #PFALambassador emails by clicking below.  PFA is active on several social media platforms. We’re organizing ambassadors across platforms through emails we will send to your inbox. We’ll give you the scoop on PFA’s programs and projects and highlight relevant hashtags.

Though your participation takes place online, occasionally we will our ambassadors to join us at one of our outreach, fundraising, or community events. Your participation in an event is not required, we would just like to see you!!

What we’re asking ambassadors to do
In addition to reading #PFAambassador emails:

  • Add PFA on your favorite social media platforms.
  • Share your stories and what you love about PFA – maybe an upcoming event, a recent Facebook post, your pet or what you’re reading, watching and listening to.
  • Use a certain hashtag when we encourage you to do so – for instance, tell others “I am a #PFAambassador” to show your support for PFA.
