Pounce on one or more of these exciting opportunities…
- VOLUNTEER COORDINATION - Got the Moves?
If the dance between people and pups is your thing, we want you! Round up some folks, round up the dogs, and start the “dosey doe” of matchmaking between dog walkers, care handlers, and perspective pet parents.
- HANDLER WITH CARE – Get Your Puppy Love On
Dole out head scratches, belly rubs, and rambunctious romps by the pond. Toss a toy, teach a good sit or loose leash walking. Make a dog happy. In return, you’ll get paws up, face slurps, perked ears and a full heart as you mold orphaned dogs into family-friendly furballs built to succeed in any new environment.
- PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR!
Who wants to fund raise? Yeah. We thought so. Let’s rephrase that. Who wants to PARTY? Plan your favorite party theme and let the proceeds go to the dogs – you know, in a good way. Let’s rock the [dog] house and make passing the hat a pleasure!
- SHAKE YOUR MONEYMAKER
Wiggle and jiggle your best writing implement, whether computer keys or a puppy dog pen, to satisfy our rescued strays’ health and hunger needs. Grant writing is where the big bucks are at to care for big dogs, little dogs and those in-between.
- BE AN ADOPTION PARTY ADVOCATE
Get to know who’s who of the Dog House so you can handle, huggle, and hype our happy dogs to prospective pet parents at adoption outreach parties!
- DRIVE MISS DAISY
Chauffeur our pups in style, by driving Miss Daisy to healthy pet appointments or to meet prospective parents in your fur-friendly ride. (Serenading is optional, but often appreciated.)
- BUILD YOUR FIELD OF DREAMS POSITION
Have a skill to fill stands with adopters? Pitch it to us. Let’s swing for the fences and hit it out of the park!
