Description

Make Enrichment Treats for Shelter Pups!

While we know a shelter can never compare to home, our in-kennel enrichment volunteers make our dogs' stay at BARCS a little more enjoyable. By preparing and distributing tasty treats and toys, you can help stimulate their minds and keep them busy and happy. Some examples of treats that we make for our canine buddies include frozen peanut butter kongs, frozen puzzle feeders, frozen ice buckets, pupcakes, dog donuts, snuffle mats, and more! We try to give a treat to every dog every afternoon - since BARCS usually has around 100 dogs in residence at any time, we're always making more enrichment treats!

Help this important program by creating and prepare treats in the morning or late afternoon, and/or being every dog's BFF by giving out treats and toys around 2 p.m. on weeks days and around noon on weekends.

Volunteers are the heart of BARCS. Without their time, talents and resources, we would not be able to save the lives of over 10,000 animals each year. Whether you have a free day on the weekend or an occasional hour after work, there is a place for you at BARCS. Join us today to help change an animal’s life forever. With your commitment and assistance, we will work together to make the organization successful in promoting animal welfare, providing lifesaving resources to our community, and giving shelter animals some much-needed love and attention.
