**We would love a small donation per attendee as we are a 100% donation based organization. Suggested donation ideas include a monetary donation of $25.

We ask that volunteers wear clothes they are okay with getting dirty: wear closed-toe shoes & pants. You may be using cleaning products such as bleach, so keep this in mind when choosing an outfit. ANY VOLUNTEER WHO SHOWS UP WITHOUT PANTS AND/OR CLOSED TOE SHOES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOLUNTEER FOR SAFETY REASONS.

Please check the list of available days and make your reservation as soon as possible-slots fill up quickly!! Once you have made your reservation, we will send you a follow up email with more information within 48 hours. *If you need to cancel, please do so on Eventbrite so it clears a space for another group*

If you have any questions please email at    

We look forward to having you and thank you for your interest in our dogs!
