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

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 policy and procedure.
