Home Visit Volunteer

Team: Adoption

Role Overview

Interview prospective adoptive families in their homes and provide education as needed. Volunteers must be accompanied by a spayed/neutered dog that is comfortable meeting new people. Home visit interviews generally take 1 – 2 hours plus drive time. Volunteers should expect to spend another 1 – 2 hours writing a detailed report and entering it into the RAGOM database within 48 hours of the home visit.

Training will be provided. Time commitment: 3 – 5 hours per home visit, at your convenience. For detailed information and Home Visit FAQs, visit the Home Visit Volunteer page.
