Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities abound!

In addition to 3x-daily (365 days per year) “hands-on” interaction with the dogs at our SAFE PLACE shelter (809 Rockford Rd SW) there are many other ways to help:


  • Act as a shelter guardian
  • Provide temporary (foster) care
  • Assist during open house hours (Saturdays, 10-2) at the shelter
  • Help with a fundraising event (prep, attend, or re-stock afterwards)
  • Take photos and videos for website/YouTube posting
  • Solicit businesses for in-kind donations
  • Write grant proposals
  • Assemble raffle baskets
  • Redeem bottles and cans (that have been collected at the shelter)
  • Donate a tote of your gently used stuff to DOGS FOREVER’s Stuff Etc acct
  • Perform grounds maintenance (pull weeds, mow grass, shovel sidewalk)
  • Place and monitor coin donation boxes at local businesses
