Volunteering at The Dog Rose is a wonderful experience for dogs and humans. As a volunteer you will be integrated into the daily routine with our local crew. You get to spend lots of time with our dogs when they are out on the play grounds. They will enjoy socialising with you and learn to trust new people. If needed you will be helping with cleaning playgrounds and compartments or other work at the shelter. If you bring a special skills like: dog behaviour, training with children and teenagers, photography, handicraft, we will integrate all your skills into  your volunteer program. If you are interested in medical treatments you can attend a spaying surgery or assist with medical treatments. If during your visit with have children groups visiting the shelter we are more then happy to integrate you in their visit and you will be able to teach them your knowledge about dogs and also show them how wonderful and caring dogs are if you give them a chance.

Typical day

A day at the shelter typically starts with cleaning and feeding the dogs which is done by our local staff, but volunteers are happy to join. The dogs will be let out of their compartments so it is easier to clean and the volunteer gets to socialise with the dogs, take pictures and video of them. If one of the dogs is adopted the volunteer gets the special task to train collar wearing, leash walking and and with them, so they are prepared for their life in their new homes. If we have puppies it is really important to socialise with them. So lots of interaction with dogs all day long.
