What? The Animal Adoption Foundation (AAF) is continuing its popular dog walking program, the I-Walk'em program for 2013. Please read below for more details...
When?Dog walking groups will meet at designated times during the week. Specifically,
Group A: Wednesdays 5-6 pm March 20-May 22 (10 weeks)Group B: Fridays 5- 6 pm March 22- May 24 (10 weeks)
How Does This Work?Volunteers who sign-up for one (or more) of the times above are asked to show up for dog walking promptly at their designated time each week. So, each group meets1x/week for 1 hour.
Each dog walker will be responsible for walking approximately 3-5 dogs in the designated hour.
What Do Volunteers Provide? Eligibility Requirements
Volunteers need to have completed CARE Level 3 training by the start of the program; Volunteers should be able to commit to coming to AAF for at least 90% of the weekly sessions. "Your dogs" will be counting on you for exercise and warm human companionship!; The sessions will run "rain or shine" and will only be cancelled in the event of severe weather (e.g., lightning, etc.);In short, this program is not for the "faint of heart" but participants can be assured that they have made a difference for shelter dogs!NEW! We're also recruiting "subs" i.e., volunteers who meet the above criteria but who can't commit to coming every week. If a "regular" walker can't make it a particular week, a "sub" will be contacted.
What Does AAF Provide?AAF will provide a point person for volunteers to check-in with each week. This will help maximize safety for people and animals;AAF provides enthusiastic dogs for volunteers to walk and interact with;Volunteers who participate in this offering of this program, and who show up for 90% or more of the sessions, will receive a FREE t-shirt as a token of appreciation.
