Reminder to ALL Dog walking Volunteers:
Morning Dog Walking Hours: Tuesday - Saturday**, 9:30am - 12:00pm*
Evening Dog Walking Hours: Monday, Tuesday & Thursday, 5:30pm - 7:30pm*
*Disclaimer since dog walking is on a first come first serve basis. Coming by the shelter an hour or half hour before closing. Will NOT guarantee you will get a dog; only because of high popularity here at BARC for volunteer dog walking.
**Saturdays are the busiest day for volunteer dog walking. Arriving early is best and only way to walk a dog. Volunteers are permitted to arrive early and wait till we start. However that alone does not guarantee you will walk a dog. It all depends on the amount of dogs BARC has that day. If two or more people come together on a saturday they must share a dog.
THIRD THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH EVENING DOG WALKING IS RESERVED FOR A GROUP.
BARC DOES NOT MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR WALKING DOGS. WE ARE STRICTLY A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED ESTABLISHMENT. WHENEVER YOU'RE INTERESTED IN WALKING A DOG, STOP BY DURING THE POSTED VOLUNTEER HOURS.
There are NO volunteer shifts on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
ALL DOG WALKERS MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE—THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS (INCLUDING KIDS AND ANYONE UNDER 21 ACCOMPANIED BY A PERSON OVER THE AGE OF 21)
When volunteering, please wear comfortable clothes and sneakers you don't mind getting dirty, and don't bring personal belongings, as we have no storage space. We require all our volunteers to follow our guidelines listed below, and sign in before walking dogs EVERY TIME.
NY Cares Team dogwalking:
Sunday and Monday mornings
(10:30-1:00 pm) and
Wednesday and Friday evenings
NOTE: At these times, we are not able to host individual volunteers.
We partner with corporations, schools, and community groups to volunteer with us in groups of 5 to 14 people. If you are interested in scheduling a volunteer project with us, please email us at email@example.com with your request. Also, please understand that we get overwhelmed with so many requests for group/school volunteering, as well as emails from individuals, that we can't always get back to everybody on the day you want to book. Please allow at least one month to book your group.
Due to overwhelming interest we try our best to respond to and reserve dates as quickly as possible. Sometimes people are denied due to the fact of dates being filled quickly. Please be patient with us.
