Show your love to Austin’s Doggies and Kitties!
What better way is there to release all of the post-holiday stress than to spend a few hours with some four-legged furry friends? Join us for the Club’s third visit to the Austin Animal Center, where we’ll ensure all of the animals get some quality outdoor time. (In May 2014, our group walked every “available” large dog in the center during our 3 hours on site!).
Please RSVP now to reserve your play time with Bruno, Bella, and Bailey. You’ll make some new friends and get a good workout to boot. All volunteers must be at least 13 years of age and those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
AUSTIN ANIMAL CENTER (AAC) Group Volunteer Instructions
The AAC welcomes Group Volunteers to interact with the dogs and cats housed at the Center. Your interaction may include petting and playing with cats and walking dogs. Keep in mind the shelter environment can be extremely stressful for all animals. Because of this stress, some animals may be reactive in a negative manner. We ask that you not treat these animals as you would you own pet. More experience and caution is necessary. All volunteers will be given an orientation and specific training on site.
Safety and Identification Requirements:
Have experience handling dogs to walk dogs
Wear closed shoes with good traction
Wear appropriate length pants – Bermuda shorts or longer
Wear corporate or same colored shirts (please wear ND Navy Blue)
