About

This position is for volunteers who will meet every Sunday at 10 am. We are in great need of dependable volunteers. Please contact us before coming so that we can plan for you. (Facebook.com/fortheloveofpawsutah - then send a private message!) Once you have been accepted as a volunteer, we rely upon your presence so please communicate if you cannot make it!

We need humans who are great with all kinds of dogs - from chihuahuas to pitbulls (If you find us on facebook, you will see the range of animals we help). You will be fitting them with collars, harnesses, coats and sweaters. It is important that you have an understanding of fitting a dog and working closely with owners. We need volunteers who can handle tense situations and help us maintain a calm atmosphere. Because of the conditions, we (extremely rarely!) see fighting. Volunteers must keep a calm head and should know how to separate dogs SAFELY. Volunteer duties will mainly be to communicate with other volunteers, making bags (fill with food, treats, toys), and/or fitting collars, coats, etc. You will be trained when you arrive and questions are highly encouraged!

For the Love of Paws is a grass roots, growing 501(c)3 organization run 100% by donations and volunteers.
