We take 15-30 animals to adoption events almost every weekend and let's face it, dogs are much more adoptable if they smell good! Most of our rescues are in outdoor yards where they can romp and play all day, but that also means they spend their days getting muddy, dusty and stinky.
You can help bathe dogs before adoption day (Thursday or Friday) so they are more appealing to potential adopters. Or help during the week bathing special needs dogs, such as dogs with allergies, new dogs with (non-contagious) mange, skin infections, etc.
This volunteer activity requires that you feel comfortable bathing large and small dogs, are able to lift dogs into and out of the bathtub, and are willing to get totally soaked in the process!
