Volunteer Opportunities

Pause4Change believes in providing all volunteers with a structured training program. Training programs vary depending on the volunteer position you are in. All volunteers take part in the same basic training which includes understanding canine communication and body language, how dogs learn and the opportunity to attend dog training classes at no cost!

We believe that in order to provide the best care to every animal that comes into our foundation, we must have a thorough understanding of their needs, training, and handling throughout the entire process. This also means we have knowledgeable volunteers to help throughout the adoption process and even provide the adopters with much needed post adoption support.
