NOW ACCEPTING VOLUNTEERS!

As a member of Austin’s non-profit community, we are delighted to host this annual celebration of peoples’ best friend and support other wonderful non-profits and local businesses.

NEW THIS YEAR: Snout by Snoutwest will be featuring BARKITECTURE: an Austin original custom dog home competition and silent auction. In order to have such a successful event, we need your help! Past events have had over 500 dog-lovers, and with the introduction of the doggie derby in 2013 we are expecting even more this year. Volunteers will serve as Snout by Snoutwest ambassadors and play a critical role in the organization, outreach and success of the event. 


Want to meet your fellow volunteers and community before the event? Then join us MONDAY NOVEMBER 2, 5-8 PM at Flying Saucer (In the Triangle: 815 W. 47th St, Austin, 78751)! We have reserved their amazing outdoor patio, so bring your pup and come hungry! It's PINT NIGHT ($3 pints all night!) so come for the community, and stay for the drink specials. Check out their atmosphere and menu here: http://www.beerknurd.com/stores/austin/.


The deadline to join the Snout by Snoutwest volunteer team is Monday, November 2. Contact Kaci Scott at kaci.scott@shalomaustin.org or call 512-735-8214.

We are just 2 months away from this amazing event! We are so proud to be a non-profit supporting other non-profits and local businesses. Did you know that a portion of the proceeds we raise the day of the event will be donated to a local non-profit rescue group? This year it is Therapy Pet Pals.
