Volunteer

Muttville couldn’t do it without the hands-on help of our amazing volunteers. Join our team!

Ponder

How can you help?

Our volunteers help in everything we do!

If you're in the Bay Area, you can make a tremendous contribution by joining our volunteer team.

Because Muttville and the mutts depend so much on our volunteers, we ask these things:

  • You commit to at least three hours a week for a minimum of six months
  • If you're under 18, you must volunteer with a parent or guardian during each shift
  • You are fully vaccinated against COVID

Please check out the opportunities below and fill out our volunteer questionnaire letting us know how you'd like to help.

Here are some ways you can help our senior mutts.

Adoptions

Enjoy working with people? Help our mutts find great homes through online meetings and in‑person events.

Behavior Training (Certified Trainers only)

We'd love you to work directly with adopters and foster families to help train their new mutt.

Deep Cleaning Crew

Every Sunday, we deep clean our space to make sure it's extra clean and comfortable for our mutts and the humans that help them out. We're looking for some folks that are up for really getting into the nitty gritty of cleaning. We have shifts available every Sunday from 10am ‑ 1pm and 1pm ‑ 4pm. If you're able to come every week, we sure would love that!

Development

To keep in touch with our amazing community of supporters, we need help with mailings, data entry, correspondence, and other administrative tasks.

Finance

Number‑savvy? The accounting team needs help with data entry projects.

Fostering

Foster homes make it possible to save the lives of so many mutts! Learn more about fostering here.

Headquarters

Keeping headquarters clean, safe, and operational is an unceasing task. You'll pick up and clean after the mutts, mop and deep clean mutt areas, wash dishes, do laundry, organize mutt supplies and bathe and walk mutts. Currently our HQ shifts are full but we'd love to get you on the waitlist once more positions become available.

Intake

When the mutts arrive, help set up the mutts' profiles, get some stellar photos, and assist with behavior testing.

Marketing

Well‑versed in social media, graphic design, copywriting, photography, videography, or online marketing? We need your expertise!

Outreach Events

Help staff our events at HQ and around the Bay Area. No experience required, just a friendly demeanor and a passion for senior dogs.

PR/Press

We need pros to write press releases and reach out to media.

Transport

This team is on call to transport our dogs to events, vet appointments, and other trips. You'll need your own car.

Vet Suite

Help vet staff with intake exams and surgery prep Monday - Friday 8am ‑ 4pm.
