Description
Help rescue homeless and abandoned dogs at this K-9 Lifesavers Adoption Day!

K-9 Lifesavers is an all-volunteer, non-profit rescue group dedicated to saving the lives of homeless and abandoned dogs from high-kill shelters and other high-risk situations. Every weekend, K-9 Lifesavers holds adoption events for its adoptable dogs.

As a handler, you will be assigned an available dog and talk to prospective adopters about them. You will get the dogs off & on the vans, calmed and hugged. They'll also need drink of water and walk on the PetSmart grounds prior to meeting potential adopters.
Requirements
Please note, for the safety of our volunteers and dogs, we try to make sure dogs are matched by temperament and size to appropriate handlers.
