Chair and Non-Executive Directors

Animal Welfare Regular - more than 6 months Tamborine Mountain QLD

About this opportunity

‘Til The Cows Come Home (TTCCH) is a charity organisation working with farmers to rehome unwanted / unviable farm animals into loving forever homes. Together with our dedicated team of volunteers, we do this by connecting with compassionate farmers, educating them on our organisations goals and working with them to arrange relocation of their unwanted animals into temporary foster care, while permanent adopters are identified.

Funds raised through our social medial and other fundraising efforts go directly to the efforts of transporting and relocating animals to a temporary foster carer or a holding station, animal feed, water and veterinary care as well as foster and adoption support. Our work is carried out by a volunteer workforce who are not financially rewarded for their efforts but are highly dedicated and committed to our vision and are rewarded by knowing they are saving lives every day.

We currently seek to fill vacancies on the TTCCH Board including a Chair Person and Non-Executive Directors. These rewarding volunteer directorships will appeal to people with an interest / experience in the animal welfare 'not for profit' sector.

  • Fundraising and Sponsorship
