We can use help in various aspects. Of course the most need is at the kennel itself. There are currently 60+ dogs there and the daily maintenance can be overwhelming. We can use help cleaning the runs, feeding, poop scooping and doing laundry. There is also the opportunity for office work and cleaning and preparing the truck to go out for adoption events.
Typically we have adoption events on the weekends at various locations around town. Most often they are at a Petco or Petsmart. We use volunteers there to help clean up after the dogs, take them for potty breaks and keep them entertained.
Another place we really need good volunteers is working concession stands for fundraising. We work Bronco games on club level and run a burrito booth. We also work CU football games, concerts at Fiddler's Green and Dick's Sporting Goods Park. You will need to complete a free alcohol training class if you are 18 or older. 16 and up can work Bronco games.
Thank you for your interest in working with us. DMK is a great rescue with a lot of dedicated volunteers working towards an important cause. I am sure you will find it very rewarding to join in and be a part of this fantastic organization.
