Without volunteers to rely on, it would be IMPOSSIBLE for Canine Cupids to fulfill its mission. As busy as life can be, it can seem hard to find the time to volunteer. However, Keep in mind, volunteering has been shown to deliver benefits such as improved social skills, social recognition, higher self-esteem and better health.

Volunteers are the most important part of any rescue. Our general volunteers assist with:

  • Foster an animal! This is our top priority and need as a foster home based rescue.

  • Fundraising events (selling raffle tickets or merchandise, etc).

  • walk and socialize dogs.

  • assist with animal transports.

What qualities we look for in our volunteers:

  • Commitment - Volunteers have an initial commitment of one year and are asked to participate in a minimum of 20 hours per year at fundraising or adoption events.

  • Reliability - The animals are counting on us, and we in turn count on you. 

  • Patience - Whether you are working with people or animals, results are not always immediate - patience is absolutely a virtue. 

  • Honesty - Self explanatory. We will always be up front and honest, and absolutely expect the same from our volunteers.  

Requirements For Adult Volunteers:

  • Possess a sincere love of dogs and provide service to the dogs in the care of Canine Cupids.

  • Volunteers must be a minimum of 18 years of age.

  • Provide references (non-family).

  • Ability to be aware of potentially dangerous situations when working with animals; ability to remain calm with animals who are upset, behave sensitively and confidently, and show good judgment and act appropriately in these situations.

  • Be comfortable being in groups of people to talk to and promote Canine Cupid’s and our mission.

  • Abide by all Canine Cupids policies outlined in our Team Agreement and Expectations and Volunteer Waiver of Liability. These are forms you will receive and sign once you are an approved volunteer.

  • Have fun!
