Here are some of the ways our volunteers help!
Dishwashing and Yard Cleaning
This involves washing dirty bowls and picking up the yard where the dogs run. This typically takes about 30 minutes, and can be done anytime during normal business hours.
At this time THS has the ability to do laundry on site. We are grateful for volunteers who are willing to run a load of dirty linens, put them in the dryer, and fold them.
We give the dogs baths most Fridays before our Pet Adoption Days, and volunteers are always welcome!
Come play! The happiness of our pups is a huge priority, so having friends come by to let them out for a bit (usually in assigned pairs) and maybe throw the ball a time or two means the world to them. Depending on the fullness of the shelter, this can be done in about an hour, but feel free to take longer!
(Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older for this task)
Dogs are fed, watered and their kennels are cleaned on a daily basis. Dogs may be socialized and exercised in the play yard. This takes about four hours, and is typically done in the morning.
Our adoption events are usually held on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm, so we need volunteers to unload the trailer and set up kennels at the designated adoption site. During the event volunteers are needed to walk, water, and "wuv" (love) the dogs to aid in their socialization. Volunteers will also meet and greet potential adopters explaining the THS adoption process and give as much history about the animals as they know. Minors may help out at adoption events with parent's signature on volunteer application. Depending on age, parental supervision may be required.
