Buddy Center Volunteer Open House
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (MST)
Castle Rock, United States
Please join us at the Dumb Friends League's Buddy Center in Castle Rock on January 25, 2011 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm for our volunteer open house! This is a perfect chance to learn about volunteering at the Buddy Center. You will receive a tour of the facility, learn more about our exciting volunteer opportunities and have a chance to speak with current staff and volunteers. We offer volunteer opportunities in kennel maintenance, dog walking, cat socialization, junior volunteer instructors, adoption counselors and much, much more.
Who are we?
Founded in 1910, the Dumb Friends League is a national leader in providing humane care to lost and abandoned animals, rescuing sick, injured and abused animals, adopting pets to new homes, helping pets stay in homes, and educating pet owners and the public about the needs of companion animals.
The Dumb Friends League is the largest animal welfare organization in the Rocky Mountain region, welcoming tens of thousands animals to our two shelters. We turn no animals away.
At our main shelter in southeast Denver and our Buddy Center in Castle Rock, dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets enjoy the comfort of a nurturing environment in state-of-the-art facilities.
The Buddy Center opened in April 2002. It is the first and only shelter in one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. The facility is a 16,000 square foot animal shelter, capable of accommodating up to 5,000 animals a year.
What do we ask for in volunteers?
To volunteer at the Buddy Center, you must be at least 16 years old and pass a background check. As a volunteer, we ask for a minimum of 3 hours per week for 6 months for most positions.
We will be happy to answer any and all questions during the open house. If you have questions beforehand, please visit our website at www.ddfl.org or feel free to contact Jasmin Rice, Volunteer Services Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 751-5772 Ext. 7246.
We look forward to meeting you at our open house!
