Volunteer as a Dog Adoption Application Reference Checker!

We need help screening applications to find each dog a loving home! This can all be done in your own home at your convenience. Reference check volunteers will review and evaluate dog adoption applications, verify personal references, verify vet references, update our Dog Management System (DMS) notes and communicate final evaluations of the potential adopter. Volunteers in this role must be good communicators, be able to present a professional demeanor, process information in a critical format, and clearly summarize information. We need volunteers that are flexible and available to make phone calls to references.

Commitment: Volunteering in this role, we hope that you will process a minimum of 1 adoption application a week. Completing one application typically takes about 1-2 hours.
