Hike a Houlagan

Every Saturday morning (weather permitting) we go to POWHATAN STATE PARK with some of our dogs for a 2 mile walk, followed by a little doggie one on one time. Take a look at the event pictures on Facebook: Hike a Houlagan 

First timers complete a volunteer application

Sign-up for this week's hike 

Kennel Work

Of course there is always plenty of work at the kennels: the dogs need feeding and walking and the kennels cleaned. Additional kennel maintenance includes grass cutting and trimming. 

Adoption Stands

We have an adoption stand the first Saturday of the month at the Southern States on Alverser Drive. We are also invited to special events. Please refer to the calendar on the home page.

Volunteers are needed to help walk, take care of the dogs and the set up and take down of the tables.


Currently, we need help building dog houses. We have a unique design we are testing out. If we receive a paw of approval, we will be looking for skilled workers to build the new houses.


Help with general maintenance projects is always needed.
