Volunteer at Family Dog

Volunteers make a difference!

How does a small organization like Family Dog Rescue save over 800 dogs a year? With the help of our amazing volunteers! The opportunities are endless and we are able to accommodate almost any schedule or skill level. We ask volunteers for a minimum weekly commitment over the first 4 months.

We love having families and children volunteer at the shelter. Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a guardian over the age of 18. The guardian must attend the Orientation and the Supervised Walk with the child, as well as sign a release of liability form. Teens between the ages of 15-18 will need to attend an Orientation and a Supervised Walk, and their parent or guardian must also sign a release of liability.


Please check back this summer when we will reopen Volunteer Enrollment!
