Thank you for your interest in becoming a Lifeline volunteer!

Lifeline Puppy Rescue depends on our volunteers for continued success in saving puppies’ lives and ensuring that they are placed in safe and loving homes.

We need volunteers who:

  • Are committed to helping with all aspects of puppy care, adoptions and maintaining a clean, safe environment for the puppies.
  • Will commit to a minimum of 6 volunteer hours per month for at least 6 months. It is very important that our volunteers be well trained and experienced.
  • Will commit to showing up on on time on scheduled days unless prior notice is given or an emergency arises.

To qualify as a Lifeline volunteer you must be at least 13 years old. Volunteers under the age of 16 must have a parent or legal guardian volunteering with them at all times.

We accept only ongoing volunteers and can not help with court-ordered community service.

Typical volunteer duties include: kennel cleaning, grounds clean-up, puppy feeding and watering, puppy playtime and walks, medication distribution, adoption set-up and break down, adoption process assistance, puppy transfer intake, adoption prep and sign creation.

Volunteers for special events coordination such as donation drives and off-site adoptions are also needed. Please indicate your interest on the application.

What’s Next?
