Volunteers are critical to the success of our organization and our adoption events. We are incredibly grateful for the time you donate to us in service to the dogs.
We strive to offer as many opportunities as possible for our dogs to be seen and adopted so on any given weekend we have a number of events that require staffing. Schedules and event coverage are coordinated based on your stated availability. Therefore, it is imperative that once you commit to an event and provide us with the hours you are available to volunteer that you keep to that commitment.
Please be punctual and prepared to stay for the duration you commit to.
Please make sure you have the cell phone number a team leader with you. If for any reason you are unable to attend or are running late for any reason, after you have committed to volunteer for a particular event or task, please call the team leader as soon as possible.
Volunteers must stick to their approved schedule while pet is in their custody. No “fun detours” without approval. We must know where our pets are AT ALL TIMES!
At no point in time are you to release pet to any unauthorized person(s) custody.
If at any time dog(s) become aggressive in any way or unable to handle or acts out at an event, you are to immediately notify team leader and terminate outing.
MARLEIGH’S FRIENDS is a family friendly rescue and we encourage the involvement of youth. If you plan on bringing your children along or would like them to help volunteer, please make sure and fill out the “Minor Consent” section of the application.
