Volunteer Sign-Up

If you know anyone who would like to volunteer, please encourage them to sign up online at this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040E45AAAE28A0FE3-adoption

Dog Walkers (4-8 volunteers)

Meet and greets with the general public. Introduce your pup to people, tell them about FOHA, meet potential adopters, volunteers, and donors. If your dog needs a break, you can move them to another area or return to the shelter. There is no obligation to be there for the full event – just coordinate with our team about when you plan to arrive and depart or if something comes up so we can support you.
Available FOHA dogs for the event will be announced early during the week of the event.

Booth/Table Set-Up (one or two volunteers)

Having two volunteers work together makes setting up the tent easier. Sign up and let me know if you can bring the tent, a table, and the events bins from the shelter, please. Bringing camping chairs can be helpful, too. Arriving early makes setting up a bit easier, too.

Booth/Table Staffing (one or two volunteers, Dog Walkers)

Handing out information and swag, our booth staff support the Dog Walkers and answer questions about FOHA. Would you please take photos of our volunteers and dogs at the event and share them with Michelle Wright and the FOHA social media team (vpfundraising@foha.org)? Would you mind helping with packing up any booth elements, including the table at the end of the event?

Booth/Table Tear Down (one or two volunteers)

At the end of the event, please pack up the booth supplies and table and return them to the FOHA Shelter. There should be room for the booth supplies in the storage shed by the Adoption Office; tables are stored in a sea crate.
