Your volunteer time to help with special events, social media, fundraising, and other activities is greatly appreciated and helps keep our costs down. We currently have the following volunteer needs:

Social Media Volunteers
NEED:  Ongoing

Are you a dog lover?  Are you a Newark Street Dog Park regular visitor?  Are you social media savvy? We need social media volunteers to capture our dog park fun via photo and video, identify other local dog news bits, and share on Facebook and Instagram.

To volunteer, please contact us:  info@newarkstreetdogpark.org.  Include “Social Media Volunteer” in the subject line.

Fundraising Volunteers
NEED:  Ongoing

Do you visit local businesses? Do you like to network? We are in need of financial support from businesses throughout our area. Fundraising volunteers would be able to make connections with local business to garner support for our park, either financially or with donations of maintenance or materials. Newark Street Park K-9 Friends was founded as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to maintain and oversee the Newark Street Dog Park. Newark Street Park K-9 Friends’ expenses average approximately $15,000 per year for the Dog Park.  It costs a minimum of $10,000 for daily cleaning and upkeep.  Our goal is $15,000 for additional repairs and amenities.

To volunteer, please contact us at:  info@newarkstreetdogpark.org. Include “Fundraising Volunteer” in the subject line.

Board Director Volunteers
NEED:  None

Are you a strategic and forward thinking?  Are you looking for a substantive professional or skills development opportunity?  Newark Street Park K-9 Friends Board of Directors is reorganizing for the next term and currently has several opportunities for volunteers including: officers (President, Treasurer, Secretary), membership development, business fundraising and grant writing, legal/government relations, and marketing/communications.  We invite you to attend the Annual Meeting on Nov. 12 to learn more about the Newark Street Park K-9 Friends Board of Directors and goals for the coming year.
