Volunteer Opportunities

Get involved and share the puppy love. Our volunteers are the kindest people, and we think you’ll enjoy linking arms with them and us. You’ll be amazed at the friendly atmosphere. We need help at all five of our Walkathon events with logistics, check-in, gift shop, and general setup and cleanup.

We have many different volunteer opportunities available, so join the Walkathon fun!

Now recruiting: Executive Planning Committee: This committee handles many of the details of our event, including team recruitment, sponsorships, marketing and publicity, logistics, volunteer recruitment, food and beverage donations, and activities and entertainment. We’re forming this committee now so if you’re interested, email [email protected].


Help Wanted! Day of Event Volunteers:

+ Check-In Tent Volunteer: Greet participants, pass out t-shirts and other incentive prizes, collect donations and answer questions. Friendliness and attention-to-detail are musts! (This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers comfortable multi-tasking in a fast-paced environment.)

+ Gift Shop Volunteer: Interact with the public, showcase merchandise and assist with purchases. This is “retail therapy” for the outgoing and energetic! (Volunteers must be able to stand for long periods of time and assist with set up and breakdown of merchandise, including some lifting.)
