Is your dog child-friendly, respectful, under verbal control and reliable? Are you community minded and empathetic and do you have time to volunteer once a week in the evening? If you and your dog answer yes, please complete our volunteer application below.

You don't have a dog, but want to help? You have a dog, but don't think he or she is a likely candidate? Chenny Troupe still needs YOU. We need help with special events, volunteer recruitment, our newsletter, and administrative help in the office. We also use volunteers without dogs to help our program leaders, to occasionally handle a volunteer's second dog or the program leader's dog, and to collect information about our work. Please complete the volunteer application below and let us know what your special talents and interests are.

If you'd rather print out an application and send it via US Mail instead, you may download it here.
