The Greyhound Adoption Center needs you! Volunteers are our lifeblood. A network of more than 200 people across California make our rescue and adoption programs work 365 days a year. We always need more help so there are plenty of ways you can find a role that fits your schedule and talents.
The biggest way you can help is by working turnout, which is when you feed and care for the dogs during a 3-hour shift. You're guaranteed lots of play time with the hounds, and this is the best way to work directly with them! If you're not physically able to help with turnout, we are also always looking for people to help with maintenance, office work, and events. Submit an application to volunteer today!
