DutiesGTHS Dog Care volunteers help to maintain the health and welfare of GTHS dogs by providing exercise, training and companionship. The purpose of a dog care volunteer is to give a GTHS dog a 'break' from the kennel, while reinforcing behaviours that help make the dog more adoptable. Dog Care Volunteers also help with general work around the shelter such as dishes, laundry, shoveling and kennel cleaning.  
Responsibility: GTHS Dog Care Volunteers are responsible for ensuring their dog remain safe and secure in their care. They must follow GTHS policies and procedures.
