Volunteers – Our Greatest Heroes at Voices For Canines Rescue
The passionate work our volunteers do is the life blood of our rescue. We invite you to help make a difference in our dogs’ lives. Volunteers like you and your selfless dedication allows us to meet our everyday Mission - “To save homeless dogs with various temperaments and behaviors, and provide enrichment so they can find permanent loving homes”
Voices For Canines Rescue is a volunteer based non-profit organization. We could not exist without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. The number of dogs we can save is inextricably linked to our number of volunteers.
