Volunteer Opportunities

HWAH relies on our volunteers. These folks allow us to care for a large number of senior dogs and provide a wonderful place for them.

For volunteer matters and requests, please email volunteer@housewithaheart.com

Thank you so much to all our volunteers for recommending us to your friends, neighbors and co-workers. Most volunteers come to us through word of mouth so thank you for championing the Sanctuary!
