We Need Dog Walkers!

Our Mostly Mutts shelter, located in Kennesaw, is in dire need of dog walkers!  It's a win/win for all involved; you get exercise and a great walking companion while a sweet dog gets some time out of his/her kennel and enjoys the beautiful weather!  Do you have an extra thirty minutes to an hour each day?  Do you walk anyway? Need an excuse to start walking?!  Help us out!  If you're interested, please contact us at  You must be at least sixteen years old to volunteer at the shelter, your own pets should be spayed or neutered and a background check may be required.  Great way to spend a night with your teenager and help our four legged friends all at the same time!  We would love to encourage you to work at pet adoptions prior to working at the shelter so you can get to know the dogs but if we'll use you for walking just the same!

Want to get more involved?  We can always use foster families for our animals.  You can foster in the following ways:
  • TEMPORARY FOSTER- Want to help but travel a lot?  Many times we need a foster home for a short period of time, for instance, when a dog's foster family goes away for a few days. 
  • LONG TERM FOSTER- At times we have a dog that needs a quiet home to recover from heartworm treatment or orthopedic surgery. These are dogs not quite ready to come to adoptions yet. 
  • PUPPY FOSTER- We are always in needs of puppy foster families.  This is a great way to get your "puppy" fix!
Anyone who is interested in fostering a dog, please contact or come to the Barrett Parkway (Kennesaw) PetSmart any Saturday at around 3:30 to choose the shelter dog you wish to foster.   There is no cost involved in fostering and we can lend you most of the supplies you might need.
