Although the huge majority of the dogs we rescue are ready for adoption after physical rehab and a little training, some of them, (through no fault of their own), need extra help.
We are looking for dog-experienced adult walkers who are willing to volunteer a minimum of one walk per week to exercise, train and prepare our special needs dogs to adoption level.
Applicants will require dedication in all weather conditions, a reasonable level of fitness and enough strength to keep medium-large dogs with them if they are pulling or lunging. They will also need to share their experiences and images on our Volunteer Walkers Facebook Page after each outing.
We will be working under the guidance of The Canine Club and, at first, new walkers will be paired with our long term volunteers.
It's very rewarding to work with disadvantaged dogs and to know that you are personally responsible for their happy endings. Sometimes our volunteers fall in love with them and, provided our adoption criteria are met, they continue the training one-on-one with their new family member.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the need for full attention, children and family dogs will not be able to accompany volunteers and the rescue dogs will each need to be walked individually at this stage.
