Volunteer Dog Walking Hours
You can make a difference in the lives of the dogs at BENCHS by walking and socializing with them.
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday
3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
*We no longer offer Sunday hours.
For first time walkers, arrive 15 minutes before each session for orientation.
We are always looking for new walkers. Spend an hour of your time (or more!) bettering your health and helping a homeless dog. Our dogs love to get their outside time, regardless of the weather conditions!
We Want YOU
Submit the time and type of volunteer work you have completed.
Students needing volunteer hours for school must log hours to receive credit.
Did you know that at many animal shelters a positive heartworm test is the last test that dog will ever have? Ever.
The next step for that animal is to be “put down” because a shelter is unable or unwilling to pay the high cost of treating heartworm. BENCHS believes that these young and otherwise healthy dogs deserve a second chance. You can help by making a donation to help cover the cost of treatment for one of these dogs.
