Transport Volunteers - This requires one of two things: 1) Ability to drive a cargo van or be a passenger/transport helper; or 2) Some sort of reliable vehicle of your own. Transports usually take about 1-4 hours of time and are typically on a Saturday or Sunday. You are NOT committed to any particular day. You will simply be added to our transport database. You will receive emails each week regarding transports and you can sign up for the part of the transport and time that is convenient for you if you are available that weekend. If not, just delete the email. A copy of your current driver's license and proof of insurance are required.

*Are you interested in transporting?
 yes no

Which days are you available to do transports?

Overnight Hosts - We typically need overnight hosts on Saturday nights. Dogs arrive between 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. and rejoin the transport at 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

The Pit Stop - We need help at our building! It is a fun place to be! It is as close to living in a home for the dogs as we can get. We dont kennel our dogs so they hang out in individual rooms and have their own dog park out back to run and play. We have 4 shifts daily and would like to have at least 2 volunteers per shift. Shifts include cleaning, doing laundry walking, feeding, and playing with dogs. Please note that we value our volunteers and try to create the safest environment possible. Dogs can be unpredictable, especially those that may come from an abused household. Because of this we must insist that no children under the age of 18 be allowed to assist at the Pit Stop. The following volunteer opportunities require at least two Pit Stop shadow shifts with a seasoned volunteer to familiarize you with our policies and procedures.

*Would you like to volunteer at the Pit Stop?
