You don’t have to be an animal expert to help out at our shelter, you just need to have the time and desire to lend a helping hand– and it doesn’t even have to be a lot of time. In fact, whatever you’re lifestyle and schedule, you’re bound to have skills and talents we can use at AZSDR, and we appreciate any amount of time you can help.

Volunteer at AZ Small Dog Rescue

What is a Volunteer: Someone who gives of their time to fulfill a passion they love, admire, cherish, and enjoy. Does this sound like you? Whether you live in the Phoenix area or out of town, any volunteering you can do for us will be greatly appreciated.

Such opportunities are: volunteering at the shelter (bathing dogs, helping clean, spending time with dogs, socializing dogs, walking dogs), transporting dogs to and from an adoption event, on occasion transporting dogs from one location to another, and working at our weekend adoption events in North Phoenix.

Sharing is also very helpful: By sharing our Facebook page and events helps spread the word to find homes for our wonderful dogs. We have several exciting events in the near future and volunteers are needed. If you have already come to the shelter and filled out a volunteer form, no need to fill out another.

Our team thanks you for wanting to volunteer and save dogs, one tail at a time. Organize an event for all your elegant friends and donate the proceeds to the shelter. Any kind of social event—a Super Bowl party, a jazz brunch, or a dog walk—is a great way to make new friends and raise money. Each year, as the word gets out, more people are bound to attend, and before you know it, your group will have a major fund-raising event!
