october volunteer opportunities

Dog Adoption Event Volunteers San Diego Here are your October 2012 dog-lover volunteer opportunities in San Diego!

The monthly adoption events we post are organized by the Dog Lovers Ministry of the Rock Church. (BTW // We’re not in charge of anything – we just try to help spread the word. Also, you do NOT have to be a Rock Church attendee to participate. Anyone and everyone is welcome.) As of June, the Ministry has teamed up with a local group called Second Chance Dog Rescue.

16 dogs adopted at The Rock

The Rock Dog Adoption GREAT NEWS...16 dogs were adopted at The Rock dog adoption event this past Sunday! We are SO happy for all of the wonderful dogs that found loving homes, and grateful for the people who gave them a chance.

The number of church attendees who signed up to either volunteer at future adoptions OR foster a shelter dog was incredible. The fact that we had to scramble to find people pens and answer people's questions was an inspiring way to end a crazy weekend. :)
