Dog walking classes are now mandatory due to the new health insurance rules of 2017.

Do you want to walk some of our cutest and sweetest adoptable dogs?

We’d love to have you! There are a few things that need to happen first.

  • You must be at least 18 years old and have proof of health insurance and a photo ID.
  • Please come visit the shelter during our normal operation hours to fill out a volunteer application.
  • Once your volunteer application is filled out, please register for one of the 90-minute dog walking orientation classes available.
  • At the dog walking class, you will need to purchase an ID badge for $4 and a “Volunteer” shirt (ranging in price from $13-$25) to wear when dog walking.
  • Once you’ve completed the class and have purchased your ID badge and shirt, you’re ready to start walking dogs whenever you are available, seven days a week, 365 days a year, between the hours of 6:30 am – 4:30 pm!

Class space is limited and space fills up quickly! Please be on time for class. Wear comfortable clothes and closed-toed walking shoes.

Our volunteers are indispensable. Dozens of dedicated women and men donate thousands of hours in virtually every department of the shelter. Some are here every day of the week, while others come in one afternoon. All levels of commitment are greatly appreciated. If you love animals and like working with people, consider volunteering. For more information call our Volunteer Coordinator Pam DuBois at (561) 482-8110

Most volunteer communications are done via e-mail. We hold several fundraisers throughout the year that we need help with as well as various speaking engagements and tours. After you have completed the training class you will be added to our e-mail list and begin receiving mail.
