Volunteering

Volunteer at Adopt-A-Dog

If you have a love for dogs and want to help enrich the lives of our homeless dogs in need, volunteering at Adopt-A-Dog may be the right place for you.  Our volunteers bring a diversity of interests, knowledge, expertise and support to our organization.

The purpose of the Adopt-A-Dog volunteer program is to provide a welcoming environment where our organization can create a positive impact in our community and give people the chance to dedicate their time making a difference in the lives of homeless animals any way they can.

Volunteer your skills, your time, and your energy. Help us continue to care for the dogs that rely on us. Whether you want to work directly with the dogs in the shelter, or join us in hosting community events, we can work together to help find unwanted or abandoned dogs their forever homes.
