New Leash on Life USA is looking for volunteers to assist with general dog activities. A flexible schedule is appreciated, as is a drivers’ license and reliable car, but the only requirement to volunteer with New Leash on Life is a love of dogs and a belief in the power of second chances.

Different types of volunteer opportunities are described below:

Dog Selection

Dog Selection Day happens about three times per year. A group of volunteers will go to the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia from open to close and evaluate dogs to determine which are the best fit for our program. Experience with dogs or a shelter environment is a plus.

Socialization*

Socialization events are essentially doggy play dates. We will take the dogs out of the prisons on select days to take them to the park for a walk or play time. We may also take them to a dog-friendly brewery or cafe to expose them to different sights, sounds, smells, and people so that they know how to behave and have a better chance of a successful adoption. New Leash can always use more dog handlers who are capable of handling strong dogs.

Transporting*

Help transport adoptable dogs to/from adoption events, adoption meets, vet appointments, socialization events, or dog arrival days. A driver’s license and car is required to transport.

Events*

New Leash events include adoption events, fundraisers, community service events like Pet Food Pantries and Vaccine Clinics, partnerships with companies/organizations across Philly, and tabling at existing events to promote adoption and recruit volunteers and fosters. Helping transport dogs during events can be appreciated but is not always required.

*For these opportunities, a prison badge is not required, but can make things easier and allow you to volunteer more often. For information on obtaining a prison badge, please discuss with the Volunteer Coordinator.

Mission Statement

New Leash on Life USA’s mission is to reduce recidivism and save the lives of at-risk dogs. We accomplish this with an innovative reform model that leverages the powerful bond between dogs and humans. New Leash’s model begins during incarceration with a dog training program that teaches practical life and social-emotional skills, and extends to high-quality case management upon release. Through this comprehensive approach, we prepare men and women for a successful transition as they re-enter society.
