BCBC depends on a small, intensely dedicated team of volunteers to make our programs and events a success. Each success is one step closer to achieving our mission. Pit Crew volunteers are essential to BCBC's work in the community - from education and outreach to rescue and fundraising. Volunteers are the hearts, hands and voices of the BCBC in ALL areas of the organization.
Volunteer foster homes make all the difference in a shelter dog's ability to return to normal life. Learn more on the Foster page of the site. If you think you'd like to embark on this exciting adventure, please complete our application so we can arrange to meet with you to discuss this life saving work.
A small, dedicated, and hardworking team of BCBC supporters help our new rescues to relax, recharge and get ready for their foster or forever homes at our Rescue Retreat. Do you have good leadership and problem solving skills? How's your canine body language and force free training knowledge? Are you a passionate and committed person? Retreat volunteers make an annual commitment to 2 volunteer shifts per week (3 hours total per week).
EVENTS AND FUNDRAISERS
There would be no BCBC without awareness and funds. We need people who like to have fun, love big crowds and know how to mingle ... we need do-ers! Volunteers help behind the scenes preparing for our many events & fundraisers each year and help at the events to make sure everything goes off without a hitch!
EDUCATION/ADVOCACY BOOTH REPRESENTATIVES
Do you want to Change Minds & Save Lives along side some of the best pit bull advocates anywhere?!? If you're interested in representing the BCBC and pit bulls at all types of community events then this is the volunteer opportunity for you! "Dog season" is May - October and we need many advocates to represent at the numerous festivals, expos, fairs, neighborhood nights out, meetings and walks in which BCBC participates.
Check out our Outreach Calendar to see where we'll be!
PUPS FOR LIFE TEAM
To help us improve the lives of all types of dogs and encourage responsible ownership, we offer low to no cost health clinics on the first Sunday of every month from June to October, at the Rescue Retreat. We need general volunteers to do various tasks throughout the clinic such as: registration, helping owners with their dogs, providing resources, and sometimes just providing encouragement. We also need VTs, CVTs and DVMs who are willing to partner with us to administer vaccinations and microchips to needy owners.

Submitting your application offers us an opportunity to get to know you and your interest in our organization. We take volunteering seriously since our mission is a difficult one.
Note: The Rescue Retreat Team is rather small, so those volunteer positions are rarely available. Retreat volunteers have also typically volunteered in other capacities and attended many events.
