⚙ FURRY FUN: Walk and Play Catch with a Furry Friend
WHAT: Walk, play catch, offer companionship and make new furry friends at Wags and Walks Adoption Center.
ABOUT WAGS AND WALKS: Wags and Walks is a community of dog lovers working to promote shelter dogs as the best dogs in the world and to break the stigma that rescue dogs are damaged goods. Through advocacy of unique family-friendly foster and adoption programs, Wags and Walks’ commitment is to help decrease the number of dogs euthanized in local shelters by showing the community that you can find wonderful dogs of all breeds and sizes through rescue. https://www.wagsandwalks.org/
VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: Every second Saturday come volunteer to have fun with adorable and adoptable dogs at the Wags and Walks Adoption Center. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to walk, bath, feed and play fetch with the dogs at the adoption center.
IMPACT: Your volunteer efforts contribute to the happiness and health our dogs. Socializing and caring for these dogs during their stay at the Wags & Walks center is key to their happiness, and ultimately their adoption. With over 3 million dogs entering shelters each year, giving back to these dogs in need is an amazing way to give back and keep them happy while they wait for their forever home.
REQUIREMENTS: 18 years or older
Must be comfortable around dogs of all breeds, sizes, and temperaments
Please do not bring your own dogs
No cell phones
Must have closed toed shoes
SPECIAL NOTES: All of these dogs have come directly from a high-kill shelter environment and need patience and love while they decompress.
