Lots of our dogs need to work on their walking-on-a-leash skills. Some like to pull and others are a little shy towards people. Exercise is very important for dogs who are waiting for their forever homes, and learning to walk nicely is one of the first steps. Walking dogs also helps us find out more about each individual dog such as his/her energy level or personality, so dog walkers will also be helping us in writing each dog’s bio by simply telling us about how the dogs behave.

**Once you have signed up, send us a message through VolunteerMatch.
After signing up, we'll make an orientation appointment that fits your schedule. The orientation is very short, only about 25 minutes.
If you are interested in doing other duties other than walking dogs (such as cleaning kennels or socializing cats), let us know! We need all the hands we can get. The first orientation will be very short and first, we give you dogs who are easy to walk. Once you feel comfortable, volunteers are encouraged to come help out whenever possible without needing to schedule certain times. We believe volunteers should be able to come in and help whenever they feel that they can.
