We are an all-volunteer organization and rely on volunteers and fosters to help us achieve our mission. You are vital to our success and hope you can find an opportunity that piques your interest to join our family. We realize that everyone has various amounts of time and skills to offer and we appreciate everyone for their efforts great and small.

  • To get started please complete our on-line Volunteer Application, which is located on the Sol Dog Lodge website, and tell us what you would like to do within our organization.
  • All volunteers in any capacity must also complete and sign a Volunteer Code Of Conduct and Liability Waiver prior to starting their volunteer duties.

Just one more thing, right now we are not accepting any volunteers under the age of 18. Once Sol Dog Lodge is up and running in Marana in late 2024, we will open volunteer opportunities to ages 15 and up. We will also then have volunteer opportunities for dog loving, hugging, and walking.

If you are interested in becoming a foster, please fill out our Volunteer application. We will reach out to you first to discuss the opportunities and do a quick phone interview. From there we will have you complete a foster application and we will then complete a home check.

Adoption Coordination
We are currently looking for individuals in southwest Pima County, Pinal and Maricopa Counties to assist with adoption applications and transportation. We will train you to be the initial point of contact for the potential adopter, arrange for a home inspection, let the potential adopter know the availability of suitable dogs and where to meet them, and arrange for the actual adoption. It’s a great way to get to know new adopters and dogs!

Perhaps you’d rather get behind the wheel instead of meeting people face to face. Squiring hounds to and from vet appointments, doing fecal runs and taking dogs to events. This type of volunteering does requires the following:
  • Valid driver’s license, clean driving record and valid auto insurance. If you qualify through our insurer, you can also utilize our transport van to transport dogs.
  • Ability to assist within only 24 hours notice.
  • Able to load up, lift and assist dogs that weight over 50 lbs. in and out of the vehicle.
  • Be able to at times, stay with the dog while at veterinary appointments.
  • Ability, at times to communicate prescription drug information and doses to kennel staff or foster.
Community and Event Outreach

Do you love speaking, interacting with the public, or just like talking about dogs? Then do we have the opportunity for you!!! We always need outreach volunteers to share our mission and the joys of sighthound adoption. You will talk to service groups, schools, businesses, active adult communities, and other organizations throughout the community. As well, as work at events and helping create that outreach vibe!!! You can transport a dog, but you will need to meet the requirement for transporting dogs, (see above).
