|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Saturday, repeating until April 30, 2018

Join Community Captain and Fayette County Animal Control Center board member, Kathy Gerencer, at the New River River Humane Society every Saturday 11am-3pm. The July flood has deeply impacted the New River Humane Society and they need our help to get the dogs active! Come out and get your daily steps in by walking dogs!

You will not only be improving your health but you will improve the quality of life for the dogs by providing them with exercise and social interaction, this will help them get adopted.

“Walking dogs is not only a great way to exercise and get outside, but it helps socialize and exercise abandoned and neglected animals. It helps them gain trust and behavior skills that are greatly needed for them to get adopted.”

-Kathy Gerencer, New River Humane Society Board member

This group is currently recruiting a Co-Captain to volunteer with Community Captain Wendsy Scott, no experience necessary, you just need to like walking and love dogs! This is a fun and valuable service opportunity for anyone. Must be 18 years or older to become a Co-Captain.
