Volunteer Opportunites with
The Big Mutt Network

Big Mutt Express Driver

We frequently need help repositioning dogs. This could be as short as getting them to a vet appointment when their foster can’t or as long as driving them across the country to their new home and everything in between.

Dog Adoption Ambassador

Want some doggy cuddles without fostering? This is your sign to sign up for some adoption events! These events are a great way for our foster dogs to find their forever homes and practice socializing with new people. They are usually at Petsmart.


The picture is arguably the most important thing to getting a dog adopted. If it can’t catch an adopter’s eye they just keep scrolling. You don’t need to be a professional, even if you just have a knack for photography your help would be greatly appreciated.

We also need people to help take pictures at fundraisers and adoption events.
