Junior/Youth Volunteers

Junior Volunteers

Dog Socialization

Junior Volunteers ages 16 & 17 can participate in our Dog Socialization Program with a parent/guardian present.

Our dogs love the company of people and it is good for them to be around new faces to help them socialize. At our shelter we have different areas for the dogs where you will be able to socialize and play with them, whether that be a game of fetch to get them moving, or giving the dogs the attention they deserve!

If you are interested in volunteering please fill out our online Volunteer Application here. Once you fill out the application you will be contacted within 24-48 hours and will receive information regarding our upcoming Volunteer Orientations.

To participate in volunteer activities at the shelter, all Junior Volunteers as well as a parent/guardian need to attend a Volunteer Orientation.

Youth Volunteers

The following are opportunities for kids ages 12 & up. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Youth Volunteer Application here.

Donation Drive

When homeless dogs arrive at our shelter they are showered with toys and comfortable bedding.  These dogs deserve to be given a clean and safe environment where they wait to find their forever home.  By collecting different items from our wish list you are really helping make a difference for the animals at Adopt-A-Dog. 

Community Service Opportunities

Often youth in the community need to accomplish service projects. The following are opportunities available at the shelter.

  • Wish List Collections
  • Bake Sales
  • Car Washes
  • Tag Sales
  • Towel/Sheets/Blanket Drive
  • Toy Drives
  • Bake dog treats
  • DIY Dog Beds and Toys

Sponsor a dog in need

Collect donations from your family and friends and support a dog at our shelter.  Choose a dog that is available to sponsor and find out what toys/bedding/food he or she likes!  Create a flyer for the dog to post around your community to help find them a home!

Dog Tails

Bring your favorite book to Adopt-A-Dog and read to our furry friends! 

Help at our offsite events

Youth volunteers can help out at our offsite events and help raise money and spread awareness of our organization.  Youth volunteers need to be supervised by an adult while at these events.

All Youth/Junior Volunteers while volunteering at Adopt-A-Dog must be accompanied by an adult
