MHKA events wouldn't happen without the aid of our dedicated, energetic volunteers. Whether setting up equipment for agility, providing information to attendees, helping out the judges, or any number of essential duties, MHKA volunteers are the best! If you'd like to know how you can help at a specific event, contact the show chairperson and let her/him know. The best way to enjoy the show is to be part of it! (And we'll feed you, too.)
