Home for Good is a volunteer-based rescue, and none of what we accomplish would be possible if not for our dedicated team of volunteers. When you contribute your time and energy to us, you are directly saving lives. Whether your interests lie in bathing dogs, baking cookies for bake sales, or helping out at adoption events, our volunteer program has something for everyone.

In addition to being part of a team who gives dogs and puppies a second chance at life, when you volunteer for us you meet an array of amazing people (while having fun!). Any skill set that you have, be it dog-walking, fundraising, or administrative, can help Home for Good save more lives. Contact us today to get involved!

Ways to Volunteer at HFGDR

There are a number of ways to get involved! Here are just a few:

Adoption events are held every weekend to expose our available dogs to the public! Adoption events most commonly take place at our office in Berkeley Heights or other pet stores in the area.
All of our rescue dogs originate from shelters in either South Carolina or Georgia. Volunteer at a transport day to give our dogs the true “New Jersey” welcome! The dogs typically arrive at 7 am and it’s the volunteer’s responsibility to bathe, walk and feed them. Transport day is all hands on deck and volunteers are just as much needed in the afternoon as in the morning! 
Filing, organizing, and cleaning! We always have things to do in our Berkeley Heights office during the week. This is perfect if you are not old enough (16) to handle dogs at transports/adoption events!
We are always looking for new and innovative ways to raise money to help our dogs. We value your opinions and fundraising methods no matter how small.

Administrative and office help, preparing for special events, and contacting other volunteers are just a few of the ways volunteers can serve the rescue at our offices in Berkeley Heights.
