How Do I Become a Volunteer?
Here is how becoming a volunteer with Secondhand Hounds works:
You fill out the Volunteer Application which goes to our Volunteer Coordinator.
Your application is reviewed, and you will be sent some additional information about our organization. You will be required to complete a Volunteer Agreement online as well. Click here to download our Volunteer Handbook. Some volunteer opportunities will include required training before duties can be performed.
Once approved, you will be contacted by our Volunteer Coordinator for various tasks through our weekly volunteer email.
Your choices listed on the volunteer application will determine what emails you receive from us. You can always be added or removed from various lists if your interests change. To be removed, please fill out this form.
It is up to you how much you volunteer! We have activities going on throughout the week that need volunteer support. You can choose to help more or less depending on your schedule.
If you need to fulfill service hours for any reason, we require you to have a minimum of 20 hours over 1 month in order to volunteer. Please keep in mind, our training classes for specific opportunities tend to book up a few weeks in advance. For any hours you need verified for projects, please email Amy at OfficeManager@secondhandhounds.org.
