Dog Adoption Event Volunteers Needed Saturday, 11/16!!!

Location: West Hollywood CA, 90048

Date: 11/16/2019 Spots Remaining: 2

Description

Hey you amazing dog loving volunteers,

Quick Overview:  We have an Adoption Event Saturday, 11/16, and we need your help! Are you available from 1-6pm? If you can't stay the full 1-6pm, we have shorter shifts too: 1-4, 3-6 or helping with transports would be amazing too! Water is available for all, you'll be fed pizza and paid in doggie kisses!

Mission or Broader Program Description: We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from various Los Angeles shelters the day they are to be euthanized. Our goal is to help provide animals with a second chance to a happy life and to help reduce pet overpopulation through spay and neuter programs. Once rescued, we place our dogs into loving foster homes while they await adoption. We do not keep dogs in kennels. Placing the dogs in foster homes is the first step to rehabilitation, as it allows us to thoroughly evaluate a dog's demeanor and needs enabling us to make the perfect match of dog and permanent owner. We attribute our high rate of successful placement to our foster program. At Ace of Hearts, we do not discriminate against any breed, including those in the bully breed family. Additionally, Ace of Hearts is dedicated to educating the public on how to be responsible pet owners and on the importance of spaying and neutering. We believe the real solution to pet overpopulation is through spaying and neutering pets.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Helping with setup and/or teardown
  • Transporting dogs from their foster homes to the event, or back home afterwards
  • Refilling water bowls, making sure dogs have treats and are comfortable
  • Walking dogs
  • Hanging out with dogs (this is 70% of the job)
  • Cleanup
