Dog Handlers

We need active volunteers to give our dogs lots of love, exercise, and attention. Dog handlers walk dogs on the trail that surrounds our shelter, bring them to and from playgroups with other pups, and bring dogs to offsite adoption events. This volunteer opportunity is physically intense and requires you to be able to walk for extended periods of time, keep your balance while holding a dog on leash, bend over, and lift up to 20 lbs. We have dog walking shifts every day from 8-10 am, 12-2 pm, and 4-6 pm, playgroups most days, and occasional offsite events. This activity requires a 2-hour weekly commitment for at least 6 months. Volunteers must be 18 or older for this assignment.
