In late 2016, a group of Brownie Points volunteers spent their day walking the energetic dogs at TEARS and bonding with these wonderful canines over sunshine and treats!

TEARS was one of Brownie Points first Nonprofit partners to sign up. As soon as we saw their uploaded volunteering opportunity, we shared it via our social media channels and in no time we had a group of do-gooders with the energy and excitement to match the job!

It was a fantastic day filled with love, laughter, active antics and great memories.

Check out TEARS Animal Rescue’s profile for chances to help them out and earn brownie points!
