As a volunteer organization, Hounds in Pounds is truly the definition of grassroots activism. We depend completely on caring members of the community to achieve our goal of saving animals at the speed of light. YOUR involvement is the key to our ongoing success. From helping with transport to administrative assistance, we offer a variety of ways to be involved. Each minute we spend towards our mission is equal and makes an improvement no matter how big or small. Join us on this incredible journey!

Volunteer Application

  • The rescue receives and processes adoption and foster applications every day of the week so if you are good on the phone, reliable and readily available to help, this could be a great opportunity to become involved.
  • We are always in need of a helping hand with transporting our rescue dogs. This would include trips to the veterinarian, the shelter, adopter’s homes, boarding facilities, and adoption events.
  • Home Visit Help Home Visits: We aim to find loving homes for our dogs all over the northeast. In order to ensure our dogs will lead a safe, happy life after adoption, we rely on volunteers to inspect potential foster and adopter's homes. Conducting a home visit involves contacting the potential and setting up an appointment for the home visit, as well as a visual inspection of the entire property and the filing of a report with our home visit coordinator.
  • Events/Fundraising Help Adoption Events: If you are interested in assisting the rescue with organizing an adoption event, assisting at the event itself, helping advertise for the event, or putting up flyers it is a great help in finding the dogs homes.
