Volunteer With Your Pet

For Dogs

Does your dog reliably and consistently:

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Come when called
  • Respond to its name
  • React appropriately to other animals (no jumping, aggressiveness, fearfulness, extreme excitability)
  • Walk well on a leash (no pulling, crossing sides, walking well using flat collar – no prong collars, harnesses, etc.)

For Cats/Bunnies

Is your cat or bunny:

  • Comfortable being handled by multiple people?
  • Comfortable with other animals (i.e., is able to be in the same room as a dog or cat or other bunny)?



If not, you may want to work on socializing your cat or bunny before starting the application process. If you are unsure, contact the PAWS office to discuss further.
