Overview

You can play an important role in helping dogs and cats get adopted, and in keeping them happy and healthy while they're at Pet Resource Center. The Volunteer Program, a certified Points of Light Service Enterprise program, invites all residents to come help make a difference in pets lives.

Guidance

Our volunteers serve as Adoption Ambassadors for the dogs and cats at Pet Resource Center by:

  • Helping adopters meet and greet their prospective new family member
  • Providing enrichment by assisting with Play Groups, walking, grooming, and playing with the dogs and cats
  • Helping at offsite events
  • Assisting in veterinary services areas
  • Helping provide customer service at our Information Desk
  • Taking photos

ROMP! Programs

Volunteers can also help out with PRC's newest enrichment program, Receiving Outside Meaningful Playtime! (ROMP!). ROMP! gets dogs at PRC out of their kennels daily to have fun by playing outside. Volunteers assist in bringing our dogs out and playing with them during ROMP! to ensure they enjoy themselves to the fullest extent. There are several different ways to help in this vital part of caring for the PRC dogs.

  • ROMP! Socializer
    • Do you like to hang out with dogs? Become a ROMP! Socializer who gets to play with PRC dogs nonstop for a few hours. Does the dog like to play fetch? Be brushed? Be left alone? Whatever the chosen activity is, you get to spend that time with each dog to ensure our dogs enjoy themselves to their fullest extent. A new dog is brought to the yard until all the dogs have ROMPed!
  • ROMP! Retriever
    • Need a workout? So do our dogs! Become a ROMP! Retriever to make sure every dog is able to get out and ROMP!. The more dogs that are brought out, the more are able to enjoy time outside their kennels. All of the dogs deserve playtime out of their kennel, help them get it.
