Featured Volunteer Role

Lead Volunteers – This roles allow us to help many more pets and families in different areas throughout Colorado. To expand, we need more volunteers who can:

  • Please volunteer several times at a Pet Food Bank first to determine your interest.
  • Commit to about seven hours per month. 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.
