Weekends are for fun times, but that can be tough when you’re a dog living in a boarding facility. AZ RESCUE hopes you will come to the rescue of these shut-in canines.
Most of the rescue group’s dogs are in foster care, but the ones that are in boarding need someone to take them out for walks for a couple of hours each weekend. Volunteers also help out when the dogs are at special events getting exposure for possible adoption.
But most of all, these dogs need a friend who will spend some one-on-one time with them over the weekend, take them for a hike, a pool party, a walk around the park, or just hang out with them at your home for a few hours.
Morning and afternoon shifts on Saturday and Sunday are available. Each shift is about three or four hours. Volunteers must be at least 21 and love dogs.
