Volunteering for a Dog Rescue is a rewarding way to give back to your community. There are a variety of ways to help, including dog walking, fundraising, administrative tasks, ground maintenance, repairs, dog transport, and kennel cleaning. Volunteers can also provide much-needed love and attention to the rescue dogs by feeding them and playing with them. There is no greater reward than seeing a rescue dog find a loving home. Volunteering for Summit's Sanctuary is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these animals.

Ways To Help

Dog Walking

Come walk the dogs and enjoy some canine companionship. Our dogs so appreciate getting out of their kennels and runs for a little while and some quality one-on-one time and attention. If you would like a little exercise with a canine friend, please consider becoming a volunteer dog walker at Summit's Sanctuary

We can always use help caring for the animals at the shelter. We need people to help us feed the animals, do the mounds of laundry that develop each day, clean the cat cages, clean the dog runs, and do general cleaning of the shelter.
