Volunteers help us keep everything running smoothly with our dogs. From training to caretaking to organizing – there’s always something to do.



Daily volunteers come for an hour shift in the morning (9-10AM) or an hour shift in the afternoon (4-5PM) to potty the dogs individually in the yard, clean supplies, groom the dogs, and so much more. Our volunteer schedules run seasonally (January-May, June-August, and September-December). We ask all volunteers to commit to coming consistently to one shift per week for a whole season. All volunteers must be 14 or older.



Interested in hands-on work with our dogs? Our midday volunteers come between 11 and 3 for a two-hour shift to dive into bond based training with our team of pups. They take them for walks, go on outings, work with them at HQ, and love them up. If you’re around during the day 1-2 days per week, we’d love to talk to you about joining this team.


If you are interested, please fill out and email the Volunteer Application to info@pawsandaffection.org.
