Volunteer at Shultz's Guest House

As a volunteer at Shultz's Guest House you play a vital role in the journey of each dog as they search for their forever home. 

Our team consists of nearly 200 dedicated volunteers who generously contribute their free time to provide care and attention to dogs who would have otherwise been forgotten. 


At Shultz's you'll nurture and build trust with dogs who have had a tough start to life, as well as form bonds and lasting friendships with other individuals who possess the same compassion and devotion to animal rescue.

You'll be amazed by the profound impact volunteering can have on both your life and the life of a rescue dog.


Volunteer Requirements

Volunteers must commit to at least 2 Shifts per month for a minimum of 6 Months

We know it's easy to fall in love with every dog that passes through the Guest House. However, volunteers must complete a minimum of six (6) months and at least twenty four (24) (4x/mo or comparable consistent routine) shifts before personal adoption will be considered. 

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older in order to volunteer at Shultz’s Guest House. 

New volunteer applicants must participate in one of our Volunteer Orientation Training sessions, before being able to sign up for shifts. This orientation reviews shift details, safety precautions, dog handling, shelter protocol, and other important information.
