Be a Volunteer

There’s nothing quite like the sound of hundreds of dogs panting, sniffing and walking together amid a festival atmosphere of food and fun. Plus, when you volunteer, you get the chance to pet all the dogs! If this sounds like your dream come true, Best Friends Animal Society can use your help to make this year’s Strut Your Mutt the best-ever for homeless pets.

Strut Your Mutt is tons of fun, but it also takes a team of energetic and dedicated people to pull it off. We need volunteers to help with event registration, assist along the walk route or help at booths and attractions. You can also help with other tasks, including setting up on the day before the event, cleanup and all sorts of things that pop up along the way. Check out available positions.

Please note: The minimum age to volunteer is 14 (with parent or guardian).There are a limited number of volunteer positions available for volunteers ages 14 - 17, and they are filled on a first come, first served basis.
