Save to Favorites

Regional Animal Services of King County/ RASKC

  • 3 people are interested

Adult volunteers who are very committed to positive dog-training and skilled with a wide range of large and very energetic dogs, especially pit bull terriers and mixes, are needed on Mondays, 12-2pm, for at least six months (time off okay for vacations and so forth). Key to success with RASKC dogs is kindness and positive reinforcement.

Typically you would share a shift with one or two volunteers.

Volunteers harness the dogs and take them out for a potty break. When all of the dogs of your color have enjoyed some initial time outside, then you take the dogs out for a longer walk.

Dog walkers are color-coded according to the type of dog they are eligible to walk.
. Green: Most Dog Walkers start as color "green" are eligible to work with our friendliest dogs.
. Blue: Dog Walkers who are assessed as "blue" are eligible to take out the shy dogs and the friendly dogs.
. Red: Dog Walkers who are identified as "red" are eligible to walk any of the adoptable dogs, including the ones that need skillful handling.

RASKC needs "red" Dog Walkers.

Next steps:

. Complete a Dog Walker application:

. Complete a general volunteer application:

Not eligible for court-ordered community service.
