Volunteers needed at Woofstock 2017 in Suwanee

Pet Party in the Park! GRRA is happy to announce that we will once again be a sponsor at Woofstock being held this year on May 6th and May 7th at Suwanee Town Center.

Woofstock is a 2-day event that invites hundreds of local dog rescue organizations to visit with and talk to attendees from all over Georgia.

GRRA is looking for several volunteers to help us either Saturday or Sunday during that weekend at our sponsorship table to answer questions, discuss our rescue mission statement, and sign attendees up to be future foster families and supporters just like you.

And if that's not fun enough ---- All volunteers are encouraged to bring their own adopted GRRA Golden Retriever along with them on their designated shift to help assist with getting our message out.

How cool is that? Your OWN Golden can be a full-on GRRA ambassador. Or should we say......Ambassadog!

Are you or someone you know available May 6th or May 7th to help us get the word out about Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta? If so, please feel free to reach out to Hal Schlenger at and sign-up today for an available volunteer shift that works within your personal schedule.

Meet some dog rescue families. Spend some quality outdoor time with your adopted GRRA Golden. And come be a part of what is sure to be an enjoyable weekend at Woofstock 2017.

Hope to see you there!
