STREET TEAM

There are about 40 feeding stations throughout the area where CRI works. Volunteers drive the route, replenish the stations, and report to the team on the animals on the streets. When an animal is approved for intake, street team volunteers pick them up and take them to a clinic or our kennel facility.

PHOTOGRAPHER

Great portraits and videos of the dogs in CRI’s program help them get adopted. CRI also needs volunteers to ride with the street team to capture what volunteers do on the streets and in the community daily.  CRI also would love your help at our fundraisers and other events.
