Volunteer opportunities where YOU live! We are seeking volunteers that would like to help promote Dogs for Better Lives through fundraising events, interviews, promotions, festivals, and social media.
Ambassadors serve as representatives of Dogs for Better Lives in their local area/region. They give presentations to a variety of groups telling them about our special work. Ambassadors are entrusted with the responsibility of representing Dogs for Better Lives in a professional manner and raising the awareness of our mission and programs.
Ambassadors also have the unique opportunity to conduct applicant interviews where they have the opportunity to meet with prospective clients on a personal level. As an Ambassador Interviewer, you will perform and record the interview for Dogs for Better Lives. Functioning in this capacity for the organization allows you to meet the people we serve and save the organization a considerable amount of funds. On average, an interview carried out by an Ambassador saves Dogs for Better Lives 65% over a staff-performed interview.
- Table a booth and/or present at a local school, community event, or conference
- Perform in-house interviews with prospective clients, in collaboration with Dogs for Better Lives Client Services
- Promote Dogs for Better Lives with your local community groups (Lions, Good Sam Clubs, Kiwanis, Rotary, 4-H Club…)
- Organize a local fundraising event benefitting Dogs for Better Lives

Application & Screening Process
All of our Ambassadors complete an application and a screening process that includes a background check. Once approved, each new Ambassador is sent a detailed manual with information about Dogs for Better Lives, frequently asked questions, a DVD and a PowerPoint presentation to show (if they choose to), and a supply of materials to hand out. We want our Ambassadors prepared so they can do the best possible job of representing Dogs for Better Lives.
