About

Our mission is simple: 1 HOUR of your time to walk 1 DOG. That's it. No commitment. No schedule. Just drop by your local shelter and offer to help give the dogs some exercise whenever you can: on your lunch break, on date night, for a little extra exercise yourself, with your team from work...

We get it: Sometimes volunteering with rescue animals, or even the idea of it, can be overwhelming. We want to #SaveThemAll, and we know you do, too! But not all of us can adopt a dog (right now, or another, or foster...)

So, let's start simple: As the old adage says, "A tired dog is a good dog." Just by donating 1 HOUR for 1 DOG, you can make a huge difference in getting that dog -- and the dogs in nearby kennels -- adopted. Maybe even THAT DAY!
