As with most nonprofit animal welfare organizations that save lives, volunteerism is vital to our success. Greyhound Friends welcomes volunteers whether or not they have brought a greyhound into their home. All that is required is a love of animals and a willingness to work.
Does your greyhound love new people and environments, getting extra pats and hugs, and lots of activity? If so, let us invite you to volunteer for Greyhound Friends’ meet and greets held throughout the year. These opportunities are in a variety of venues and numerous times during the year so you can find a few that suit your schedule without having to make a long-term volunteer commitment. It’s a wonderful way to introduce and educate the public on the joys of owning a retired racing greyhound. If your pup is not the meet and greet “type,” but you can’t say enough about how owning one of these special pets has enriched your life, please come without your pup! We sometimes take our kennel guests to meet potential adopters depending on the event and necessary safety precautions, so that might be an option for you as well. Visit our Events Calendar or Facebook Event page for a current schedule. We would love to have you join us!
Another type of volunteer opportunity available at Greyhound Friends is helping out with our periodic special events. We put on a number of these events each year, both at the kennel and offsite. Planning, communication, setup, hosting and takedown are required for each event and volunteers are critical to successful events.
