We Need Slumber Buddies Volunteers! Our Slumber Buddies program allows volunteers to take approved dogs for a 1-3 night stay at their home. This allows us to gain valuable information on the dogs behavior that will help us place them with adopters! Volunteers will hang with their pup, take them for walks, take LOTS of photos, and report back on their dog's behavior. We will set you up with food, dishes, crates, toys, etc.
Slumber Buddies Requirements:
- 18 years of age or over
- Safe home/apartment environment that allows pets
- Plenty of time to spend with your buddy
- Dog savvy (able to work with minor behavioral issues or strong dogs)
- For everyone's safety: No other pets or small children in the home
Can't have a pet long-term? Considering adopting? Just want to give back? Slumber Buddies is a great way to get your dog fix with a short-term commitment! To get started, please contact Dawn — contact info listed below.
