Thank You for Wanting to Learn More....

Do you love pets? Do you want to make a difference in their lives? If yes, then we have an great opportunity for you! We are looking for additional volunteer moderators to join our existing team of moderators and help us manage the Lost Pets of Omaha Area page. This is not just a Facebook page, but a lifeline for thousands of pets and their owners who need our help.

As a volunteer moderator, you will be responsible for posting updates, responding to comments, and scanning found pets for microchips. You will also be part of a compassionate community that cares deeply about reuniting lost pets with their families. You will have the chance to witness and celebrate the joy and relief of every successful reunion.

We know that moderating the page takes some time and effort, but we promise you that it is worth it all. You will not only be helping pets and people, but also growing your skills, network, and confidence. You will also have the support and guidance of our experienced and friendly staff.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer moderator, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page and we will get back to you soon. We are looking for people who are pet lovers, people oriented, responsive, committed, and empathetic. If that sounds like you, then don’t hesitate to apply!

We are very proud of our page and the impact it has made in the Omaha area. We have over 60,000 followers and thousands of pets reunited as a result. We strive to keep our page up-to-date, safe, judgment-free, and interactive. That’s why we need your help!
