Here are some things you can do to help out:

  1. Bathe or groom the dogs
  2. Socialize or train them with treats (bring your own treats, if possible, because we don’t always have them)
  3. Play with the cats, trim their nails, clean their ears, or give them a wipe down
  4. Sweep the grounds and pick up dog poop (not much fun, but a necessary chore)
  5. Wash doggie beds and crates
  6. Take photos for our social media posts and newsletters.


  1. Please bring your own food. The nearest store for snacks is 5 minutes away on foot. The nearest restaurant for meals is 15 minutes away by car.
  2. For your safety and comfort, please wear closed shoes.
  3. A change of clothes would be a good idea, especially for those who want to give the dogs a bath. 


It’s ideal but not required. If vaccinated, please bring your vaccination card or email it to us in advance: [email protected]

If not vaccinated, a waiver is included in our volunteer schedule form above.

You automatically become a regular volunteer after your 3rd visit and if you keep visiting at least 2x a month. This makes you eligible to receive a volunteer certificate, if requested, such as for school requirements.

Submit the form to volunteer on-site:
