We always need more people who want to walk dogs. The shelter can accommodate so many animals that the staff members just don't have enough time to make sure that every animal gets attention every day. Human interaction helps the animals release pent up energy and reduces stress, making them happier and more adoptable. Walking the dogs really does help them get adopted!
Before you can volunteer with the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter, you must attend a general orientation class.
