“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
Volunteering enriches your life, it is a known fact. While people choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons, the opportunity to save and significantly improve the lives of these animals and their human counterparts for the better is what drives our volunteers here at SADN. Volunteering with SADN is an exciting and rewarding experience where you have a direct impact on the lives of hundreds of dogs and puppies coming into our care every year. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to develop and build new/existing skills, experience and knowledge, and meet some awesome people along the way!
SADN is always welcoming of new volunteers for a variety of contributions including:
- • Transportation (including “Flight Buddies”)
- • Fostering
- • Cleaning
- • Vaccination Clinics
- • Community Liaison (First Nation Representative)
- • Supply pick-ups
- • Fundraising (including crafts/baking)
