Kennel volunteers assist in the care of the dogs in advanced training at our facility. Kennel volunteers potty the dogs, prepare meals, groom, play with, and exercise the dogs, care for our kennel kitty Betsy, and do various cleaning tasks in the kennel. There are three shifts of volunteers in the kennel daily: two volunteers from 7:00 - 9:00 a.m., two volunteers from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., and one volunteer from 9:30 - 10:30 p.m. You can volunteer for a regular shift on a weekly basis, or serve as a substitute volunteer on an occasional basis. Kennel volunteers must live within ~30 minutes of our facility.
Immediate Help is needed for the following shifts:
- Monday 7 - 9 AM,
