Volunteer Program

Volunteer Opportunities

All volunteers participating in these programs must be 18 years or older and have attended a volunteer orientation. 

Dog Socialization

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! 

Events Assistant

Adopt-A-Dog attends many different events and holds our own adoption days.  At these events we need people to be able to talk about what Adopt-A-Dog does and how we help our homeless dogs. 

Dog Walker

At the different events Adopt-A-Dog attends in the community we always bring a dog or two to show the public.  Walking our dogs around the event is always helpful; it draws people into our booth and shows our dogs to potential adopters.  To be a dog handler for Adopt-A-Dog you need to have gone through our Dog Socialization program and be experienced with our dogs.  This program also requires a training session with our Shelter Manager.
