Volunteering at Marty’s Place is an excellent way for individual animal lovers and service-minded groups to get actively involved in our work with senior dogs.

Although Marty’s Place will have a small core staff of employees, our overall success and the success of our day-to-day activities will depend on the strength and assistance of volunteers. The importance of volunteers to the sanctuary and especially to the well-being of the dogs who live there cannot be overstated.

Volunteer assistance is needed in several areas
  • Activities – walking dogs, exercising, socializing, playing or swimming with them
  • Sanctuary Operations –cleaning dog rooms, doing laundry, grounds-keeping
  • Program Support – office work, fundraising, marketing, communications

Without a doubt, any time you devote or service you provide will be greatly appreciated by our residents.
