Dates and Times

Time commitment: depends on volunteer availability. We only ask that the commitment is reliable and consistent.

Required Qualifications

Previous dog care experience is encouraged although not required. ElderDog volunteers range widely in age, background, experience, time commitment, and volunteer activity. Volunteers will be required to obtain a vulnerable sector check.

Position Responsibilities

Most often, this involves dog walking but also could include: - driving a dog to a vet or groomer appointment - helping out with basic grooming such as brushing or bathing - delivering dog food from our dog food bank - helping with eye or ear cleanin - any care activity with which an older person needs a bit of extra help

Volunteer Benefits

These activities may seem simple to volunteers but they mean the world of difference to someone who needs help. Very often, it means the difference between someone being able to keep or give up their beloved companion. Our volunteers often enjoy getting to know the seniors and their pets, creating a great friendship with the seniors that we assist.
