ORGANIZATION: Dogs Forever

  • 266 people are interested

We are a small Adoption Guarantee shelter in Cedar Rapids, IA. We are 100% donation-funded and 100% volunteer-operated. We need volunteers who want to work 2 hour shifts taking care of our dogs. This entails walking, feeding, and playing with the dogs. Also some light cleaning (sometimes the dogs decide to make a mess!). We have a flexible schedule that can work with almost everyone's busy lives. Please consider becoming part of our team!

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and physically able to handle strong/big dogs. We do not take people doing court-ordered community service. Volunteers are not allowed to bring their children or anyone else with them when they volunteer, unless the person with them is also a volunteer who has attended orientation.

We ask our volunteers to do a minimum of two shifts per month.

We do 3 shifts per day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year:

6 am - 8 am

11:30 - 1 pm

6 pm - 8 pm

To get the ball rolling, please visit our website to complete our volunteer questionnaire: https://dogsforever.org/volunteer/volunteer-questionnaire/.


After it is received, you will be contacted by our Volunteer Coordinator who will help match your interests with our needs.

Thank you for your interest in joining our team of dedicated volunteers!
