A waiver is signed each day you come to walk a dog. This releases us of any liability should you get scratched, injured, or have clothing soiled as a result of walking a shelter dog. A volunteer will bring the dog to you and also return the dog to its kennel at the conclusion of the walk. Dog walkers are not permitted to come inside the compound to get a dog. Do not attempt to walk your dog close to another dog that is out walking as some of the dogs do not get along with each other. You may walk around the shelter grounds or sit in the park area to visit with your furry friend. Thank you for your cooperation with our safety procedures.
Persons under the age of 18 years are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign the waiver. The parent or guardian is required to supervise the walk and remain on the premises for the duration of the visit.Persons under the age of 16 years cannot walk a dog by themselves; if the parent or guardian wishes to have a second leash attached to the dog for the young child to walk together this is permissible.
Before you can help out with this opportunity, you'll need to sign up as a volunteer. Once you've done that, you'll be able to contact the shelter and express your interest helping out with this opportunity. You'll also be able to create a volunteer profile, which will let shelters and rescue groups in your area find volunteer opportunities that best match your skills and interests.
Volunteering is a great way to help pets in need and meet other caring humans like you!
