General Volunteer

We always need volunteers! A range of opportunities are available – take a look at some of the ideas listed below. If you only have a couple of hours to give each month or two, you might like to help with transporting dogs out of shelters.  If you have more time to give, perhaps you’d like to become more involved in our ongoing functions, such as foster dog case management or adoption placement.

Apply now!

Did you know? Many larger employers offer volunteer grants! Does yours? Check with your human resources department to find out. A volunteer grant is when companies provide either a set monetary donation for every hour an employee volunteers, or provide a grant once the employee reaches a certain threshold. Make your volunteer hours count even more!
