Volunteers are much needed during our weekend adoption events, every Sat. and Sun 11am to 5pm rain or shine. Volunteers must be 13 years of age or older to be accepted into our volunteer program. We need much help on the set up and the break down of the events each day, the more volunteers we have, the easier this process goes for us and the rescue dogs.


There are two shifts 11am to 2pm and 2pm to 5:30pm You are expected to work the entire shift. You will not get your hours signed off on if you leave early. Should you show up and we have too many volunteers we may ask you to return on a different day. Please bring the Release of Liability form with you in hand as well as the Procedures and Protocol when you show up for the orientation. If you do not have your forms, which you can down load below, with you in hand you will not be able to participate in the orientation.


Since our start date in 2010 we have had thousands of volunteers come through our adoption sites. We thank you all for your dedication and support showing up to help  us every Saturday and Sunday rain or shine. Below are some of the organzations and schools from which our amazing volunteers have come from. Please NOTE, anyone from anywhere can volunteer.
