Easy ways to help

Humane Society Dogs Awaiting AdoptionThe lifeblood of any charitable organization is the volunteers. We can’t do what we do without a little bit of help from a whole lot of people!

Do you want a dog, but can’t have one right now? Do you work a lot or live somewhere that doesn’t allow dogs?  You can get your dog-fix by taking our dogs for walks at the park! This helps with leash-training, socialization and basic commands. It also helps us get the word out about our rescue and our dogs!

Do you need student or court ordered community service hours?  We need more volunteers at our Saturday adoption events to give the dogs potty breaks and walk or hold the barkers. We could also use some help with transport to/from events so we can take more dogs. You can only fit so many pooches in a Prius! In addition to that, you can earn community service hours by helping at the Ranch in these areas:

  • Poop Patrol
  • Assembling adoption packages
  • Clerical work/filing
  • Bookkeeping/CPA work
  • General maintenance
  • Yard work
  • Grooming/bathing
  • Grant writing/fundraisers
  • Socialization/Training
