During this amazing volunteer segment you are in charge of the rescued dogs. YOU are their Agent making sure they are comfortable, adorable and happily nestled in their cribs. You will make sure they are well fed and watered, cleaned, groomed and primped, walked and loved, and introduce them to their prospective new families. You will encourage people to give them a treat; to hold them or take them for walks. You can also set up play dates for our dogs to see how they get along with families who already have dogs, in our very own play room at Petco. When a pet is adopted you will get him ready to go with a leash and harness, pose the family for their first family photo, make the public announcement for Petco and get to celebrate every new home. You can then post the pictures up on Pinterest for everyone to enjoy and celebrate.
