Become a Shelter Buddy!
Exciting volunteer opportunity that benefits both you and our shelter dogs!
Anyone who knows Ayres and it's staff/volunteers knows that our first priority are the dogs and cats in our care. Cleaning their kennels, keeping them in the best mental and physical health and trying to get them the best forever home possible. ♥
So this is our MAIN goal!
We want to find ONE dedicated volunteer per dog that we have in our care.
We want that dog to be ensured an outing at least twice a month for an hour or so each time.
**Ayres may be out in the middle of nowhere - but little do people know - we have 20-40 dogs at any given time. We hardly EVER turn down a dog coming in. We strive to help as many as we can, as often as we can.** We have had SUCH success because of the amazing volunteers we have that come up any chance they can (some from an hour away or more) to spend time with their shelter buddy.
Not only does going on outings do good for the dogs, you get to volunteer and you will not regret the time you spend with our sweet babies. You will change this dog's life, and I promise they will either give you something you have been looking for or show you something you didn't even know you were missing.
You may not be able to adopt another dog, or any dog right now.
But what is stopping you from volunteering?
Because you will have to bring them back to the shelter? Don't feel bad about that - we love our shelter dogs just like we love our own animals. We spend just as much time with them, too!
For most of the dogs in our care, the shelter is the best life they've ever known - and you are going to help enrich that life even more!
The bond you share with the dogs we match you with, will be a bond that could turn their lives around.
The pictures you share of you and them on your outing - could be the picture that gets them adopted! I promise - you won't regret volunteering.
