Zoomies Volunteer Registration Form
Thank you for your interest in joining Zoomies!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoomies is a grassroots volunteer initiative dedicated to offering support for dog owners across Ontario. We at Zoomies understand that the pandemic poses additional risks to some vulnerable members of the community but believe that no one should have to choose between risking their health and feeling as though they cannot care for their beloved pet. We are committed to matching those who are struggling to safely exercise their dog(s), as well as our amazing frontline workers and teachers, with a volunteer dog walker in their area.
By completing this form, you will be added to our database of available volunteers. Once in the database, you will be contacted should a nearby dog owner register for help. (Please note that registering as a volunteer does not necessarily mean you will be matched to a dog - we are only able to match you with a dog if one becomes registered in your area. By completing this form, you will simply be added to our database as a contact that is interested and available to assist if/when the time comes. If you do not know your long term availability, you may still register and we can make the appropriate alterations to your volunteer profile should anything change in the future.)
Should a dog owner register in your area, Zoomies will contact you to provide the details of their dog(s). If you are comfortable with the dogs' details, you will be matched to them to provide ongoing walks for the same dog(s). All details, such as frequency of walks, length of walks, etc., will be mutually decided upon between you and the owner. We will do our best to match you with a dog that we feel you would be well-suited for based on your responses to the questions below. You will also be provided with a list of guidelines to ensure that the process is as safe as possible for both you, the volunteer, and the dog owner.
