UPSDA - UP200: The UPSDA puts on the UP200 Sled Dog Race, a 220 mile race, as well as Midnight Run, a 90 mile race. They need 600+ volunteers for inside and outside work, including road crossing duties, retail, vet check, dog handling, checkpoint workers, set-up, take-down, and crowd control. Check out the website at UP200.org for more information.  This is a great way to increase community involvement.

We have a wide variety of opportunities available, from direct care for the animals, to behind the scenes office work, to fundraising and helping with adoption events!
