Helping us keep the animals clean, healthy, and happy! Volunteer duties include cleaning kennels, laundry, creating dog enrichment, walking and other related jobs. This is a physical, sometimes dirty, job and many of the dogs are large and untrained. Anyone interested in working with dogs must attend an animal behavior orientation. Parents volunteering with their children must always have control of the animal by holding the leash.
NOTE: All Dog Docents will be required to complete 10 hours of Shelter Support duties before handling any animals. Anyone interested in becoming an adoption, intake, or behavior assistant is required to start as a Dog Docent.
