Volunteer PAALS

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is
“What are you doing for others?”
(Martin Luther King Jr)

PAALS success is due in large part to our volunteer family. We literally could not accomplish a fraction of our mission without the efforts of our dedicated Volunteers.

Our volunteers assist our staff in all facets or our operation: working with dogs, assisting with fundraising and events, community outreach and education, groundskeeping, animal care and grooming, sewing and crafts, handyman work and administrative work. If you have the time and the will, we can most likely find a task for you.

Our volunteer shifts vary by day of the week and time of day. We also have many one-time opportunities where volunteers are needed for a specific opportunity for a few hours on a specific day.

PAALS Volunteers help raise life-changing canines one hour, one day, one weekend, one activity, one event, one puppy at a time.
