To keep the dogs in our care emotionally happy and physically attractive as a means of increasing their chances at adoption and enhancing their lives, volunteers will talk to, pet, bathe, groom and play with adoptable dogs. Volunteer may interact with dogs while they are in their cages, take them into a visitation room, walk them outside, or play in the dog park!
