Volunteer

We are volunteer-run and need people to help staff pet food banks, fundraise, represent us at events, pick up pet food from pet food store donors, host fundraising and outreach events, grow our partnerships, and more. In 2015, volunteers donated more than 1900 hours!

During 2016, we are planning to open up several more new pet food bank locations and will be looking for Lead Volunteers.

Featured Volunteer Role

Pet Food Bank Lead Volunteer – In 2016 we plan to grow to eight monthly pet food banks (we currently hold five monthly food banks). This will allow us to help many more pets and families in different areas between Denver and Boulder. To expand, we need more volunteers who can:

  • Commit to about seven hours per month, typically during weekdays. We request that you commit to being the lead volunteer for 80% of the next year’s pet food banks at a location. We say “80%” to allow for vacations, sick days, etc.
  • Lift 30+ lb.-bags of pet food
  • Have a large vehicle, such as an SUV or covered truck
  • Meet insurance requirements. For everyone’s safety and protection, our insurance requires that you have a minimum $100,000/$300,000 Bodily Injury Liability and $50,000 Property Damage Liability.
  • Allow us to perform a background check. We are required to run a background check on all “drivers” which is a primary function for Lead Volunteers.
  • We’ll train you to run the pet food bank and you’ll always have support.
