Service Groups

SERVICE GROUPS: Attention clubs, students, youth groups, and businesses: Are you interested in volunteering at Animal Defense League? We probably have a service project that will fit your group. You won’t need to attend our volunteer orientation, though a short orientation will be held before you start your project.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Children ages 10-17 can volunteer with adult, teacher, or guardian supervision. We do ask that there be no more than a 5 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 service project such as painting, landscaping, or washing windows. Note: Dog walking is not available to Service Groups, but at the end of your time we can have staff members bring out dogs to visit with you. You can also visit cats & kittens at the cattery. The minimum Service Group commitment is 60 minutes, and the maximum amount of time is 2 hours. We’re happy to provide a record of hours served if needed.
