RRUFF is able to continue to promote responsible dog ownership, help develop new community education, support disabled American veterans, and undertake other activities because of the work of active volunteers and our fundraising efforts. Please look over the volunteer opportunities and find a committee (or two) you would like to help with. We are always looking for new volunteers and ideas. We love giving community service hours to students and anyone else who needs them. And, if a parent also volunteers, we double the hours for the student. Helping staff our booth at events and weekend dog park clean up are two of the most popular volunteer opportunities for students.
Healing Heroes – Your involvement with the Healing Heroes Program includes fundraising, community outreach, participating in veteran-related events and RRUFF-hosted events. If you are passionate about veterans and veteran issues, this is the committee for you.
Events – Staff our table at RRUFF-hosted and community events. Most events are on weekends during the day in June through October and require only a 1-2 hour commitment. Hand out flyers, talk about the dog park and the Healing Heroes Program. Great for students needing community service hours. Woofstock is just one of the many fun events for which we need volunteers, and it is held the last weekend in August.
Membership – Our dues-paying membership is how we raise money every year to add amenities our park. Your job is to help us grow our membership base for both individual and corporate memberships. A strong membership will provide us on-going annual income to maintain and improve our park so it will always be a dog-friendly and people-friendly place to visit.
Fundraising – You will help us coordinate and execute fundraising activities to generate revenue for RRUFF. The money raised will help finance the purchase of equipment and amenities and maintain and enhance the Special Needs Area.
Maintenance – Your hands-on physical involvement will help in adding amenities, repairs of existing amenities, assembling new equipment, and special projects. If you are available on weekends, we are responsible for Saturday and Sunday dog park clean up ( i.e. scooping the poop and emptying the trash cans). Great for students! We also have occasional “work days” throughout the year for 1-2 hours on a Saturday morning.
Docent – As a docent you have a special opportunity to be visible at the park on a regular basis for the purpose of greeting new visitors, helping them become acquainted with the rules, and educating them on proper dog park etiquette.
