Have You Ever Volunteered Yourself to Walk Dogs for the YHS?
If you're searching for a unique first date or something special to get into, have you ever considered walking dogs with the Yakima Humane Society?
When my husband and I first started dating it was actually one of the first dates we went on and it was so much fun.
It's been a while since it's been offered but just so you know, the Yakima Humane Society is searching for volunteers again.
The Yakima Humane Society is open for DOG WALKING! We need some volunteers to help us walk our potty trained dogs, and just give them a break from the kennels. In order to walk a dog you must be 18 years or older to hold the leash, and have a valid form of ID. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by adult but is still encouraged to come out!Just a reminder that Kennel staff will pick the dog to walk based on who still needs to go out.
When and Where
You are able to take advantage of dog walking between 9 am and 4:30 pm daily but also make note that the Yakima Humane Society is closed from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm for lunch. You can enjoy this free partnership six days a week, Monday through Saturday, and if you have more questions you can contact the Yakima Humane Society at 509-457-6854.
The Yakima Humane Society is a non-profit and a no-kill shelter that is always searching for volunteers and foster families for their animals so if there is any type of help that you would like to give, it is always very much appreciated.
