Hi! My name is Duke! I am an energetic, loving, oversized lap dog.  I have never met a stranger I did not like- as long as they are willing to give me all of their attention! I am willing to do just about anything as long as I can be with you - walks, cuddles, playtime, naps, you name it! I do not like to be isolated from you but I seem to manage just fine in my kennel while  Read more

Volunteer Opportunities for Youth
We are pleased to offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for kids under the age of 16. Youth may volunteer with a parent, guardian, or approved family member who will be their adult volunteer partner. Youth volunteer opportunities include: Community Outreach - We believe that the humane treatment of animals applies on the community level.   We try to bring our animals out into the community, and educate the community on what we do!  Outreach Volunteers help with taking animals into nursing homes, Petco, PetSmart, and other outreach events. On average, outreach volunteers assist with events once or twice a month. Fundraising and Events - We receive no government funding, and rely heavily on donations and fundraising efforts to keep our organization running. Volunteers make these fundraising events a success! Having youth volunteers at fundraisers and other events helps the community see what a difference young people can make in the lives of animals. At events, youth volunteers can perform a variety of tasks including handling animals, helping with event activities, and setup/tear down of the event. Being a fundraising and events volunteer is a great way to get involved without committing to a set weekly schedule. To become a youth volunteer, we ask that you do the following: Youth volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation with their Adult Partner Volunteer. Requirements for adults partnering with youth volunteers Volunteering with a child is a memorable and unique experience. When you are volunteering with a youth volunteer, you are considered a volunteer yourself.  Adult partner volunteers must submit a volunteer application, and attend a volunteer orientation. To be a partner volunteer to a youth volunteer you must be the youth's parent, guardian, or family member over the age of 21. Below are some other ways that a younger Volunteer may participate: Lemonade Stand to raise funds Charitable Birthday Party Encouraging team participation through Girl or Boy Scouts and many more... Why do you have to be 16 years of age to Volunteer by yourself? Many of the animals that come to us have unknown histories.  All people working at our event locations or foster homes need to be able to manage unpredictable situations. In order to ensure the safety of the animals, directors and volunteers, Mutts and Mayhem has determined that generally youth under the age of 16 are not appropriate for volunteering with the organization. We understand that most youth have varying maturity levels. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to appropriately assess these differences and thus our policy is to limit our volunteer program to those 16 years of age or older. We are eager to engage youth in animal welfare issues and the work of Mutts and Mayhem in ways other than on-site volunteering. Mutts and Mayhem has many educational programs to explore, through which younger community members can gain an understanding of Mutts and Mayhem Animal rescue and animal welfare issues. Young people might also consider having a parent apply to be a foster volunteer. Although the primary volunteer must be age 18 or older, the entire family can participate in the fostering experience.
