Volunteer Program

Fortunately our volunteer program is currently full. If you’re interested in being added to our waitlist, please send us an e-mail at [email protected].

Volunteers are a very important part of the Buddy Dog Humane Society. Our volunteers are a diverse group. They include professionals, homemakers and students. If you are at least 15 years of age — we need you!! Unfortunately for safety reasons, children under 15 can not volunteer at the shelter but they can still make a difference. (see below)

Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience. Volunteers support and enhance the care and services provided by our staff. All new volunteers attend an orientation and training with ongoing support from our staff and experienced volunteers. While we do ask for a minimum 4-month commitment, we are flexible to meet your scheduling requirements.

Volunteer work is varied. Some tasks may seem menial but all are necessary for the well being of the pets. We make every effort to match your interests with the need at the shelter. A list of specific volunteer opportunities is available at the shelter.

For more information, please contact the Director of Volunteer Services, Donna DeWallace at (978) 443-6990 or [email protected] and thank you for your interest.
