Description

Help our dogs become more adoptable by giving them much needed exercise and using techniques that teach them behaviors that will help them get adopted and stay adopted. Volunteers must be at least 17 years of age or older to assist “hands on” in our dog walking/training. As a dog walker you will socialize, train, and exercise adoptable dogs by taking them on their daily walks. Services also include: cleaning, filling & passing out the enrichment toy known as KONGS, filling dog water bowls, folding laundry, scooping poop, and filling treat bags.

We color-code our dogs and our volunteers to ensure that the advanced dogs are walked by more experienced, specially trained volunteers. Beginner dog walkers must attend the Level 1 Dog Walking Orientation AFTER attending the Adult Volunteer Orientation. Level 1 Dog Walking Orientations are held the third Saturday of every month at noon and last roughly an hour and a half. Please come prepared for hands-on training with some of our level 1 dogs and wear long pants or jeans, along with closed toed shoes.

Purchase your volunteer supplies at the time of your scheduled orientation or before your first day of volunteering. We do ask that you sign up in advance to attend the orientation as seats in the class are limited. New volunteers must complete General Adult Orientation prior to coming to the Dog Walker Level 1 Orientation.  If you would like to complete General Adult Volunteer Orientation on a Saturday morning plus Dog Walking Level 1 the same day, you can sign up for both orientations when filling out their New Volunteer Agreement here: https://form.jotform.com/81194451885162 Volunteers currently enrolled in our General Adult Volunteer Program can sign up by speaking with a member of staff during their next volunteer shift with us.
