As a dog caretaker, you'll be part of a dedicated team that provides compassionate, hands-on care to dogs as they wait to find their forever homes. You'll help clean their runs, feed them, and exercise, play with, and cuddle them! The goal is to make their time at the shelter as safe, happy, and stress-free as possible. Our shelter operates on two shifts per day -- AM shift runs from 9am to noon, and PM shift runs from 3pm to 6pm. We'd ask you to commit to one shift per week (e.g., Saturday AM shift). That's it -- just three hours per week can make a world of difference in a homeless dog's life! Please VISIT OUR WEBSITE to become a volunteer: https://www.animalaidsociety.org/volunteer/

About ANIMAL AID SOCIETY INCORPORATED

Location:

Mission Statement

Animal Aid Society (AAS) is a 100% volunteer-run and operated no-kill dog shelter. We provide a safe, happy place for dogs to live and thrive until they find their forever homes. If you want a hands-on experience caring for and loving dogs, then Animal Aid is the place for you.

Description

PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE to become a volunteer: https://www.animalaidsociety.org/volunteer/
Animal Aid Society provides food, shelter, and love to abandoned/surrendered dogs. Our dogs come from the Hampton Roads community and from over-crowded municipal shelters. Every dog at Animal Aid receives top-notch veterinary care, quality food, playtime, love, and exercise, and has a large, clean, climate-controlled place to live! As a volunteer, you'll be part of a dedicated team that works together to feed the dogs, clean their runs, and meet the dogs' social, physical, and emotional needs (we're talking walks, playtime, and cuddles here!). Our goal is to find a loving forever home for each dog, and we work hard to find adopters and set them up for success. But, while the dogs wait, we want their stay at the shelter to be as safe, stress-free, and happy as possible. Volunteers like YOU make that possible! Our shelter operates in two shifts per day: AM shift is 9am to noon, and PM shift is 3pm to 6. You'd pick one shift per week (e.g., Saturday AM shift) -- that's it -- just one three hour commitment per week, and you'll make a world of difference in a homeless dog's life!
