Paws Place Dog Rescue Volunteer Program

Thank you for your interest in participating in our Volunteer Program. Volunteers are highly valued in our organization and they fulfill many important duties both at the kennel and outside the kennel.

In order to make your volunteer experience as safe and rewarding as possible please read the following information about our program prior to completing and submitting your Volunteer Application.

Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to participate in this program.  Acceptance into our Volunteer Program is at the discretion of our Volunteer Coordinator.

If you wish to volunteer your time at the kennel facility, activities that we need assistance with are:

  • walking dogs
  • doing laundry and cleaning dog bowls
  • feeding dogs
  • socializing dogs
  • landscape maintenance (mowing, trimming, weed control)
  • light building maintenance such as vacuuming, mopping, replacing A/C filters
  • greeting visitors in our reception area

If you wish to volunteer your time outside the kennel, activities we need assistance with are:

  • handling dogs at meet and greet events
  • assisting with organizing and conducting fundraising events
  • publicity

To remain on our active volunteer list our expectation is that you will participate at least two days per month.  All volunteers will be expected to attend an orientation session and read, agree to and sign our Volunteer Agreement.  Volunteers that are 16 or 17 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the orientation session.
