Dog Volunteers are responsible for walking dogs, socializing puppies, giving out toys and treats, feeding, providing fresh water and washing bowls. Two training sessions are required before you can begin. Each training session will be about 2 hours. Dog volunteers should be able and willing to work at least one shift each week, be outside when it’s wet, hot or cold and enjoy working with both big and small dogs and puppies. Ideally each volunteer will walk or socialize at least ten dogs and puppies during each shift.
APS is in great need of Week-day Dog Volunteers. Orientations have limited space and priority will be given to volunteers who are available Monday – Friday and are interested in working with dogs and puppies. If you are able to fulfill the requirements below and are interested in volunteering with dogs and puppies, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for this month’s orientation dates.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age (We have limited opportunities for teens which require volunteering with a parent or guardian. Please ask for more information).
Volunteers must work at least 8 hours per month and commit to volunteer for at least six months.
Volunteers must also be able and willing to follow the procedures we have in place for the safety of both our animals and volunteers.
