We are the largest non-profit animal shelter in Des Moines providing services for over 20,000 animals each year. We have an exciting volunteer opportunity to help raise money for the homeless animals! The Leprechaun Chase 10K has made the ARL the beneficiary charity for past years raising over $3,000 and helping hundreds of animals! This event is not possible without the help of volunteers.
Available volunteer duties include: packet pick-up, course monitor, race timing, and much more. Students do not need to be current or active ARL volunteers. Below are details of the upcoming volunteer opportunity. If you are interested, please register using the link below.
Volunteers receive a FREE Leprechaun Chase Souvenir and a green beer at the after party (21+ only for the beer)!
