Service Groups

At ADL we have many projects available that require the assistance of service groups. Groups do NOT need to attend a volunteer orientation, but a short presentation will be held before each project.

Participants must be 12 years of age or older. Children under the age of 18 can volunteer with an adult, teacher, or guardian. We do ask that there be no more than a 3 to 1 adult/child ratio. All participants must complete a SERVICE GROUP RELEASE FORM (click to download and print). Participants under 18 must have a form signed by a guardian.

What Do Service Groups Do?

Groups might split-up to assist with kennel cleaning duties or be assigned a project such as painting, landscaping, or washing windows. Note: Dog walking is not available to groups, but at the end of the project our staff will provide a time for animal interaction. Groups should be dressed and prepared to complete tasks that are primarily labor intensive/outside.
