You will be required to help with the cleaning of the dog kennels/yards and to walk the dogs once the cleaning is done. The work we ask our canine volunteers to do is quite strenuous and you must be willing to walk our dogs in all weathers, rain or shine.

Our shifts are:

You must be confident at handling dogs, hardworking and reliable. We need volunteers that are prepared to commit to the minimum requirement of 6 months and can understand written and spoken English.
