Public Relations Manager

As the Public Relations Manager for BAPBR, you'll be the voice for our organization and our foster dogs. Responsibilities include writing and sharing press releases, representing our organization during TV and radio interviews, working with various media outlets to promote our events and fundraising efforts, sharing our mission statement and initiatives with the public, and helping to change the public perception of Pit Bull Terriers in the Pacific Northwest.

Community Education Team Member(s)

We are in need of Community Education Team Members who will educate the community and promote animal welfare. In this role, you will research relevant topics, create presentations, and represent BAPBR as a well-spoken educator and ambassador. Bring your love of teaching and enthusiasm for helping people!

Newsletter Writers

Extra extra, read all about it! That’s what we’re hoping our fans will do when we roll out our quarterly BAPBR Newsletter. We’re looking for a team of writers who will take on this project and help us launch it in the fall of 2014! You’ll have creative license to research and generate content on a variety of topics for each publication. Let your storytelling skills shine!

Senior Graphic Designer

BAPBR is searching for a Senior Graphic Designer, preferably with 5+ years of graphic design experience, to work directly with our Creative Director. The right person for this role is a self-starter who takes ownership of projects, is deadline-driven, and designs to impress. This is the perfect outlet for your talents, and a great way to help build your creative portfolio!

Twitter Lead

Hashtags and re-tweets and followers, oh my! BAPBR is in need of a Twitter Lead who will not only manage the day-to-day content on our feed, but also help network us to the Twitter user base, start new and interesting Twitter conversations, and increase the number of people following @BAPBR1.

Fundraising Team Member(s)

Do you love to plan parties and mingle with new people? You’d be a perfect fit on our fundraising team! As a BAPBR Fundraising Team Member, you’ll be involved in every step of the event planning process, from brainstorming event ideas to coordinating logistics and securing sponsors.


People love seeing pictures of adoptable dogs, but videos really reveal a dog’s personality. BAPBR would love to start including videos in each bio on our Adopt-a-Bull page, but we need an experienced videographer who can go on-site to record animals, edit content, and deliver a final video experience that entertains viewers and helps our dogs get adopted. YouTube user experience is a plus!

Thank you for your interest in our group.
