Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

Email me your news. I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

Helping animals in need and 
disadvantaged pet guardians

Cocktail party and live bachelor auction

For more information contact Carol at

Come bid on a 2 legged friend 

to help a 
four legged friend!
Meet Lucy, the adorable Toy Fox Terrier.
Lucy is 4 years young and weighs 8lbs.
She is extremely smart, playful and affectionate though shy at first.

Lucy is house trained and crate trained.
All she needs now is a loving home where she can be adored.
I am sorry but we do not offer out-of-state adoptions.
In an effort to help create the best match possible we must have the pre-adoption questionnaire completed before we can schedule an introduction. It is not meant to be intrusive or in any way minimize your level of commitment to animals. It is simply a way for us to adequately determine the best match. Our only goal is to provide a homeless pet with a lifelong loving home.

The Animal Guardian Network, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity helping animals in need and disadvantaged pet guardians through our many programs. The purpose of these programs is to provide the assistance essential to keeping pets in their loving homes thereby helping to reduce the number of pets euthanized every day. Being financially disadvantaged is not synonymous with an inability to provide a loving home. It is just an opportunity for us to make a difference in the life of an animal and their guardian by lending a helping hand.  

Our Programs
Pets are part of the family, and meeting their needs is critical in reducing the number of pets being surrendered to animal shelters.Keeping families together often times means simply offering a helping hand.Our programs serve as that helping hand.
Rescue and Assistance - 
Providing second chances to discarded pets

Feed in Need - Pet Food Relief Program
The Animal Guardian Network provides low-income seniors and financially disadvantaged individuals assistance with their pet care. Our services include assistance with pet food, 
veterinary care (when funding allows) and mobile grooming.

The Feed in Need program provides support for the following community partners:
North Tempe Senior Center’s Meal Program
Hope for Pets
Basic Mission
Foothills Food Bank
Poverty's Pets

The Justice Fund -  
Providing veterinary support to animals in dire need

Wanted Paws - Bringing homeless pets to loving families
In 2008 the Animal Guardian Network was presented with a unique opportunity to save more lives by partnering with rescue organizations outside of Arizona. With the increasing number of animals
euthanized every day in Arizona this seemed like a perfect solution. 

Spearheaded by AGN Board Member Sandy Day, the Wanted Paws program was established in October of 2008 and has rapidly become a huge success. On average we are able to transport 2-3 dogs per month by private plane to loving homes in Wyoming.

The Animal Guardian Network looks forward to duplicating this model in other states as well. What a wonderful opportunity to save more lives.

Additional programs currently offered:
Senior Pet Project - No fee adoptions of homeless pets from the County Animal Shelter for low- income and disabled seniors that would otherwise not be able to enjoy such companionship. 
Rescue Community Support - Assist fellow rescue organizations with rescue and placement efforts along with obtaining needed supplies.
Programs in development:
Rescue Partner Boarding - This program is primarily for rescue organizations that have a New Hope Partner contract with Maricopa County, which allows them to save dogs from the County’s euthanasia list. The rescue organizations, once approved to become Rescue Partners, are provided a maximum of 2 weeks of full-service boarding giving them the time necessary to find a foster home.
Black Canyon City Project - Providing spay and neuter surgery along with vaccinations for the pets of this impoverished rural community through a partnership with Healing Hearts Mobile Clinic. 

Education - Inspiring change through on-site animal care volunteer opportunities for individuals, families and youth groups.
 Pet Therapy Program - Training rescued animals to become therapy pets for visits to nursing homes and hospice care facilities.
 Humane Grief Support & Blessings - Through AGN’s partnership with One Voice Ministries, grief support along with animal blessings are provided by two ordained animal chaplains. 

Future projects: 
Free Clinic - Free spay and neuter surgery provided for the pets of anyone who is financially disadvantaged. Low-cost veterinary care, humane euthanasia and vaccinations provided as well.
We need your help to make these much needed
programs available to those who need assistance.

Thank you so much Jean!!
