Mobile Adoptions
Nicole, our Mobile Adoptions Coordinator

Volunteers assist Nicole managing animals at various adoption events at off-site locations. Duties include filling water bowls, giving treats, spot cleaning, speaking to the public about different animals, walking dogs*, and helping with set-up and break down.

This opportunity is located throughout Santa Fe and surrounding cities at various venues and times. Our mobile adoptions unit accounts for 35% of our pet adoptions! Having volunteers scheduled consistently for these events is essential for helping make adoption matches.

*Canine socialization and dog walking training is required. The Volunteer Coordinator will provide the necessary training.
