Walk for Animals 2017!
Easy As Pie Menu


Volunteers make the Walk for Animals possible! Thank you for considering volunteering at this year’s event. As a volunteer, you'll be part of the action, meet adorable animals, and be an integral part in supporting Animal Humane Society’s mission to engage the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals.

All Walk for Animals volunteers also receive a free T-shirt when they check in for their role that day.

Age requirements

Volunteers for the Walk must be 16 years of age or older.

Volunteer roles

Choose your top three role choices on the registration form. Please note that we do our best to assign you to a preferred role, but cannot guarantee that everyone will get one of their top choices. Because event details are in the planning phase, volunteer shift times and specific roles may be subject to changes. We are still in need of volunteers to fill the following roles:

Crowd Control (must be 18 years or older): 6:15 a.m. 1 p.m.
This role is all about safety. Crowd Control volunteers assist both pedestrian and vehicle traffic throughout the day. With 9-10,000 people and their animals attending, things can get hectic.

The Green Team: 10:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Help us get to our goal of being a zero-waste event! If you’re passionate about the environment and want time to enjoy The Walk, this role is for you! Volunteers in this position are stationed in pairs (whenever possible) at designated recycle stations to help educate Walkers about the importance of proper waste separation (recycle, compost, trash).

Shuttle Bus Greeter: 6:3010 a.m.
Act as “tour guide” for Walkers on the bus by telling them about the Walk activities, where to check in, etc. and getting them energized about the day!

Flex Volunteer: 7 a.m. 1 p.m.
Flex volunteers will fill in as necessary depending on last minute schedule changes, volunteer no-shows, or event needs. Some Flex Volunteers will receive a designated position shortly before the event, but some Flex Volunteers may not receive a position until check-in at the event.

The following volunteer positions have been filled:

• Walker Check-in
• Volunteer Check-in
• Walker Hospitality
• Vendor and Sponsor Check-in
• Activities and Booths
• Walk Wear Sales
• Poop Bag Patrol
• Donation Processing


We are able to accommodate some small groups to volunteer. Each group member does need to register individually and put the name of their fellow group members, group lead, or group name in the notes section on the registration form. Groups must have all members registered by Monday, April 3, in order to be considered for placement in a role as a group. We do our best to keep groups together, however, there are only a few roles that can accommodate groups larger than 3-4 people so group spots fill up very quickly and will likely be full before April 3.

Goal: $1,000,000

Event Progress: 36% of goal
Raised: $361,746.62
