Do you want to make a difference in the lives of the thousands of pets that come into Animal Services every year? Join our lifesaving volunteer program today—we are looking for new volunteers to assist with our Dog Playgroup program. 

What are Dog Playgroups?

Dog Playgroups provides the opportunity for our shelter pups to get out, exercise, socialize and allow our team to evaluate as many dogs as possible. This will also provide our team the opportunity to take photos and videos for social media and rescue partners in hopes to find more positive outcomes for our shelter pets. 

Playgroups will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 am to 11 am. 

Bring a valid state/government photo ID when you attend the orientation. Text Rose at 487-7596 when you arrive, and if you arrive late, please reschedule. Volunteer applications will be available at the orientation, and there is no cost to join the VIP Volunteer program.

DRESS CODE: For your safety and the safety of our pets, no shorts, no yoga pants, no leggings, no heels, no dresses, no dress boots, and no opened-toed shoes. There is a possibility of getting wet, so please make sure you dress appropriately.

Dog Playgroup Volunteers should be:

  • Must be at least 18 years old and be able to complete a background check
  • Have great customer service
  • Must love and enjoy being around dogs

There is no requirement to register. You will schedule a Basic Animal Handling Training during your orientation, which you will need to attend before handling animals.
