Dog Volunteers Needed!

Tank for plea.jpg

DEDICATED DOG VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

What we are looking for?

  • Dog lovers who have 1-2 hours per week and want to make a difference in a dog’s life

What do you get out of it?

  • Slobbery dog kisses, muddy hugs, wiggle butts, unconditional love, and so much more!

  • Knowledge that the time you spend volunteering each week makes shelter life more fun and enjoyable for the dogs. The 15-20 minutes you spend with each dog, is the best and most exciting part of that dog’s day

It’s not easy work, but the rewards are endless.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Walking/Cleaning shifts

  • Mornings: 6:00AM – 8:00AM

  • Evenings: 3:30PM – 6:00PM

Requirements to volunteer with the dogs:

  • Able to dedicate 1-2 hours per week on the same day each week
    We understand that things come up (family emergencies, illness, vacations, etc.). We simply
    ask you to communicate with the lead for your shift as soon as possible so they can try to find
    a backup.

  • At least 17 years of age OR at least 14 years of age with a parent/guardian who is willing to accompany you

  • Must not mind getting dirty, jumped on, pulled on leash.
    Most of our dogs are larger dogs (50+lbs) and do not have the best manners. Our volunteers
    work with the dogs to help them learn some of these important skills.

  • Must be comfortable picking up dog poop
    We provide the bags! We require volunteers pick up the dog poop while they are walking the
    dogs and we pick up the dog poop in the play yards.

Ways to help:

  • Exercising Dogs (walking, jogging, playing ball, etc.)

  • Cleaning Kennels/yards (sweeping, mopping, changing bedding, hosing, picking up poop in the play yards, wiping down doggie doors, kennel walls, and dog beds, etc.)

  • Doing dishes

  • Folding laundry
