How To Get Involved

Event Volunteer

Adoption events and community outreach events are completely volunteer based projects. Events are generally held on Saturdays. Volunteers are needed to setup crates, walk dogs and speak with potential adopters, fosters, and volunteers. If you would like to lend a hand during an event please contact us with your information.
