Adoption Event Volunteer
69 people are interested
Every week Denver Dachshund Rescue & Transport holds adoption events all over the Denver Metro area. We can be down south in Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, or Aurora. We can also be in Denver proper or Greenwood Village! Our events are always Saturday or Sundays, and go from 11-2pm. The shift can last as long as you are available!
This opportunity will help setup the dog pens, put out water bowls, blankets, leashes and toys into the pens. They will also assist with the dogs themselves and getting them comfortable. Volunteers will help with potty breaks and potential adopters! We DO NOT do same day adoptions, unless you're an alumni. We talk with the adopters about the dogs and assist with them getting to know each other. Volunteers help answer any questions about the dog that adopters may have. We also keep an eye on all the dogs to ensure safety for everyone.
Volunteers will assist in the tear down of the event as well.
About DENVER DACHSHUNDS RESCUE AND TRANSPORT

Denver Dachshunds Rescue and Transport is a Non-Profit Organization that is dedicated to helping Dachshunds and other small breeds Nationwide.
Fourteen years ago a friend called asking if I could help with a dog her neighbor had and no longer wanted. I agreed to take in the dog. When I pulled up she came out with something wrapped in a towel handed it to me, mumbled something and went back in her house. The towel held a tiny dachshund so scared she was biting anything in reach. She was covered in her own excrement and smelled of urine. A trip to an emergency Vet revealed she had had cigarette burns on her nose, her tail was broken in two places and she had three broken ribs. I called the lady thinking this little girl had to have been hit by a car. I was told her sons never liked the dog and sometimes teased it.
This is when the fire began. The drive to try to help stop so many enduring needless pain and suffering. For years I helped where I could but it was never enough to make a difference. Too many die in shelters and ditches unwanted, alone and afraid.
Two years ago we formed Denver Dachshunds Rescue and Transport in hopes of helping more dachshunds in need. In that time we have helped nearly 500 dogs into loving arms and families of their own.
So now we take in dogs from owners, shelters, other rescues and anywhere else that needs us.
We'll work with your schedule.
