Volunteer Application

We love volunteers – they perform much-needed tasks that help us help dogs every day. They include walking and socializing dogs at our Smithfield, Virginia center, distributing literature, being a voice for dogs that need our help, administrative tasks as well as making positive changes all over the US by helping change laws in your area. We are certain there is something perfect for you to do to help us save more lives. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Dogs Deserve Better; we are glad that you have decided to join us!


Become A “Rep.” in Your Home Town! 

While we don’t always have immediate openings, we try and place as many area reps as we can to help the dogs that need us most. Area Reps report directly to our National Rescue Coordinator. An Area Rep helps dogs in their area through fundraising, helping pass new legislation for animal welfare, and building relationships with Dogs Deserve Better and their local shelters, animal control, and municipalities. Please complete the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
