How Our Volunteers Help

    The Shelter Connection is an ALL volunteer organization. Primarily our members are trained as adoption advisors and dog handlers, but there are many other ways to be involved.  From participating in fundraising and "friendraising" events to writing for our newsletter and helping out on trail clean-up days, every volunteer hour spent is a meaningful way to help our shelter dogs.

    New volunteer classes are scheduled regularly.  If you are interested in more information about becoming a TSC volunteer, please e-mail us at:


Adoption Advisors

Our advisors help people find the right dog for a match made in heaven. 

Dog Handlers

 Professionally trained, our handlers give dogs exercise, provide socialization, and introduce basic obedience making dogs more adoptable.

Volunteers Doing More

At fundraising and friend raising events TSC volunteers help spread the word that shelter dogs are not "damaged goods".
