Would you like to help our tail-wagging friends get their daily exercise?
We are looking for volunteers to help socialize our dogs from 8-11am and 5-8pm.
Your role as a dog-walker ensures that our dogs get the exercise they need (with a break from the kennel) and also helps them develop the healthy interaction skills needed for successful rehoming. Lots of dog experience isn't required. However, if you're considering owning a dog, or are temporarily unable to house one, this would be a fulfilling role.
Ideally, you’ll volunteer a few hours each week. After walking your dog, our staff appreciate your feedback about the dog's socializing skills and progress.
It's important that you follow staff guidelines. Some of our dogs are large, others have difficult backgrounds, so training is necessary to prepare you for safety and proper skills.
We are excited that you're interested in our Dog Team at NCHS. We look forward to working with you!
**If you are under 18, you can't walk dogs.

About NEWNAN-COWETA HUMANE SOCIETY INC
608 Hwy 29 N, NEWNAN, GA 30263, US
Newnan-Coweta Humane Society is a 501(c)3 all volunteer, non-profit organization, dedicated to reducing the number of pets euthanized at Coweta County Animal Control (Newnan, GA) through rescue, spay/neuter, foster programs and community awareness. NCHS works to provide leadership in the implementation of public policy concerning animal issues, and to participate in the humane management of the area’s increasing animal population. We will also provide educational programs to assist residents in caring for and enjoying their pets and will work to improve public awareness of companion animals’ ability to enhance the quality of life in our community.
Newnan-Coweta Humane Society was founded in 1975 and is the oldest humane society or animal welfare organization in Coweta County. We do not receive federal, state, or county funding. We rely completely on donations, grants and fees collected from adoptions to fund our rescue efforts. We maintain an active presence at the Coweta County Animal Control facility, but are NOT directly affiliated with the county government. We serve the animals at that facility, by taking photos and videos and posting them to our website, hosting a weekly TV show "Adopt-a-Pet", working with many local, regional and out of state rescues to facilitate rescue for animals facing euthanasia. We have an active foster program where we foster animals and place them for adoption locally at PetsMart, PETCO, and other off-site locations.
We'll work with your schedule.
