Do you want to make a difference in the lives of dogs and their owners? Holly’z Hope Volunteer Program is extremely rewarding, educational and fun. You’ll be able to witness a dog running free in their yard for the first time, see the joy in the pet owner’s eyes, and know you’ve helped a dog live their life unchained. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities vary throughout the year.  In December, we deliver straw to keep the pups warm, or put tarps up in the summer to help keep them cool.  Fence builds are scheduled around the dog owner’s schedule and volunteer availability.  Typically, we schedule two builds a month. Fundraisers are also scheduled throughout the year.  

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to assist with community outreach, social media, resource coordinator and donor coordinator.  

Here is a list of the types of volunteer opportunities we have at Holly’z Hope:

  • Dog Checks
  • Fence Builds
  • Straw Day
  • Fence Repair
  • Fundraising
  • Social Media
  • Social Media Coordinator
  • Community Outreach
  • Resource Coordinator
  • Donor Coordinator
