Running a Sanctuary takes two very important things: money and people. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on donations of money or in-kind gifts. But equally important are the people who give generously of their time, talents and efforts and play a vital role in the operation of Dog Lodge.

Dogs come to Dog Lodge from a variety of backgrounds – the majority of our dogs have special needs. Whether you give your time to work directly with our residents or to help with facility projects; whether you volunteer your time to work in our office, in our outreach programs or to participate in fund-raising activities; you will be a part of something very special. Here is an opportunity to feel the pleasure and fulfillment that helping animals brings. Here is an opportunity to make a difference in their lives.

If you are interested in being a part of the Dog Lodge Sanctuary team, working directly with its dogs or behind the scenes, then complete the online volunteer application below. We look forward to hearing from you.
