Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team! Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth - we want to say, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.


We are always looking for sponsors to help pay for food and vetting as well, we can feature your company on our website to show our gratitude as well! Email sponsor@doghouserescueacademy.org for more information.


Doghouse Rescue Academy is also more than happy to help you with volunteer hours if you need them for school service credit. For dog handling, volunteers must be 18 years or older, we also have other non-dog related tasks if you would prefer that as well; younger volunteers are welcome with parent/guardian supervision for the entire duration of event.
