LWBF volunteers dedicate their time to help with educating and servicing people in the under served communities that we service. Volunteers help organize and execute annual events such as Pints For Paws and The Summer Block Pawty Series.
Do you have 45 minutes before or after work to walk a dog for an elderly woman that is physically unable?
What about an hour of your Saturday to give a bath to a puppy that is covered in flea dirt?
The Live.Wag.BARK! Foundation needs compassionate, pet loving people to help us accomplish our mission. A non-profit organization is nothing without it's volunteers.
Volunteer Tasks Include (but are not limited to):
Planning and staffing events
Training new volunteers on various tasks
Photography and videography
Writing press releases
Writing grant proposals
Presenting in schools
Coordinating other volunteers
We believe that building and nurturing our community relationships will aide in completing our mission. Ambassadors are assigned to each community and are responsible for checking in with program participants and coordinating with volunteers. Having ambassadors allows us to know community members and pets by name and keep a profile for those that are serviced by the LWBF.
They keep track of pet-owner relationship progress and identify any signs of abuse, neglect and hardship that may require a pet to be removed from a home. We encourage people from the community to volunteer and become ambassadors because no one knows the neighborhood better than those that live in it.

The program teaches the following core values:
Program benefits include college or job recommendations, pet-related skill education, job shadowing and more!
