“Nothing is as strong as the heart of a volunteer”

The goal of our volunteer program is to engage compassionate German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois dog lovers – just like you! Volunteers are the key to our success and we need you to help us in our mission to promote the rescue, adoption and well-being of our dogs. We are dedicated to saving the lives of those that others won’t. We help the sick, old, and those that have run out of options. We’re certain that we will have a volunteer area that works great for you and your schedule. Quality time with the dogs has a positive and long-lasting effect on their well-being. Show your compassion. Volunteer today!

Below you will find some common questions we receive about volunteering. Our organization operates by volunteers, so please allow for 5 days for your application to be processed.  We appreciate your interest and look forward to hearing from you.
