Description: 

The Oregon Humane Society’s Doggie Dash Walk/Run is their biggest fundraiser of the year. OHS is the largest and oldest humane society in the Northwest. Last year, OHS found homes for more than 11,600 pets, investigated more than 1,000 reports of animal cruelty, and reached 14,000 people through its humane education programs.

Please join in the wonderful group of volunteers who make this event happen. Our group will act as Course Monitors, cheering on participants and pointing them in the right direction along the route. Some positions will be stationed at water stations to hand out water to people and dogs. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Need to be assertive; recommend only adults or adult/kid combos.
