Thank you for considering volunteering with BARK. As an all volunteer organization, we always need more ‘hands’ to help our dogs. Volunteer opportunities range from hands-on help with the dogs to supporting our administrative team with fundraising, marketing, or other exciting projects.

Please allow two to three weeks to receive a response to your volunteer inquiry. Please also ensure that you check your "spam" emails as well if you have not been contact by a BARK volunteer within that time frame. Email if you have not received a response to your inquiry within the designated time frame.

Please note the following age requirements for new volunteers: 16 and older to volunteer alone; 12-15 to volunteer with a parent or guardian; no volunteers under the age of 12. These age requirements are in place to ensure the safety of both our volunteers and our dogs.

Additionally, we are always in need of foster homes for our many dogs. You can learn more about the foster program here.


In addition to filling out an online inquiry, please bring a hard copy of the completed BARK volunteer application/waiver with you during your first volunteer outing. Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with BARK!
