About the Event

The shelter pups that will be participating in this event range from 40-80lbs. Most of them have not had much leash training, and will probably be very excited when coming out of the kennels. Volunteers must be comfortable handling large dogs, and understand that if a dog is not a good match, they may be reassigned or offered the option to assist with other tasks.

Participants must be 18 yrs old to be assigned a dog. Underage participants are welcome to come along with mom or dad, but they cannot be responsible for the leash. (The only exception would be for minors who have registered as a volunteer with El Paso Animal Services, and completed orientation & Level 1 handling training.) This event is not suited for smaller children who cannot walk on their own. Please do not bring strollers, baby carriers, or family pets along.

This will be a collaboration event with SK8-4-KIDS to bring some of their skateboarders out to the skate park behind the shelter, to perform some tricks and get the pups & walkers involved in the fun. This will be a great opportunity for the pups to get exposure to something new, and for the community to join in.

The Participant Waiver must be signed and turned in at each run, unless you are a registered volunteer with El Paso Animal Services. The waiver can be reviewed at the link below: PARTICIPANT WAIVER
