Does anyone know how to go about volunteering to walk dogs for shelters?
I was once having lunch on an outside patio on 17th in NW and a person walked by with a dog. We all wanted to pet the adorable dog so she came up to us and explained she was walking the dog for a shelter (I can’t remember which). She said all she does is go whenever she wants, like a beautiful Saturday morning, and gets a dog to walk around and then bring back. It’s great for the animals because they get exercise, love, and they wear a harness advertising them as available for adoption, so they get visibility… and it’s great for the walker because if you’re like me, you love dogs but can’t afford one right now, my apartment doesn’t allow them, and I’m afraid I don’t have enough time to properly care for one because of work + grad school.
Has anyone ever experieinced this? I called around and didn’t get far. I believe the SPCA has something similar but it seemed to require a LOT of paperwork and time committed.Thank you!
