Get Involved

Mutt Scouts is an entirely volunteer based organization. We cannot do the work we are so committed to doing without the help and support from our Mutt Scouts Family. There are many different ways to get involved. See below for a list of volunteer opportunities.

Do you have a special skill or opportunity to help that is not listed below? Please reach out to us at info@muttscouts.org.


Adoption Event Volunteers

Adoption events are the best way for our community to meet our Mutts, and we are always happy to have an extra set of hands. At our adoption events, safety is our number one priority. If you are a savvy dog handler, we would love to have you join us at one of our events! Please note, dog handlers must be 18 years or older.



We regularly need volunteers to shuttle our Mutts to their foster and forever homes, to adoption events, or to vet appointments. These needs often come up at the last minute, and the best way to look for transport opportunities is in our Instagram Stories. If you regularly drive between Los Angeles and San Diego, we need you!

Dog Trainers

If you are a trainer or behaviorist and would like to donate your time and expertise, let us know!

Fundraising and Social Media Volunteers

If you're a creative person or self-starter, this volunteer opportunity may be perfect for you.  Mutt Scouts needs help in all of our fundraising and marketing affairs.  You will work with Mutt Scouts to identify and execute marketing campaigns for our dog rescue events, programs and adoptable animals. In this role, you may even write for our blog, participate in social media marketing and create and promote online fundraising for a needy Mutt Scouts dog. If you are great at planning events we welcome new ideas and help in setting up live fundraising events in SoCal.


Home Check Volunteers

One of the most important parts of the adoption process is a thorough home inspection to make sure the new home is safe and secure for a dog. You will be trained by one of our Mutt Scouts Ambassadors. We need volunteers all over Southern California for this position.


Records Manager

Mutt Scouts is looking for a responsible, detail-oriented and computer-savvy individual to assist us in uploading and filing medical records and registering microchips. Additionally, the Records Manager would keep track of adoption contracts and fees.
