Want To Help Lu's Labs But Aren't Sure How?
Here are some of our volunteer opportunities:
Transporting- We can use transporters from the south all the way up the East Coast! If you love to drive and don't mind lending an hour or 2 to helping a dog, we have a lot of transport opportunities!
Adoption Coordinators- Can't foster or transport? No problem! You can help from the comfort of your home! Adoption coordinators work with our applicants to get them approved and ready to meet their next family member.
Home Visits- We require a home visit for all adopters to make sure their home is suitable and safe for one of our Labs. We need home visits ALL over VA, DC, MD, PA, DE and NJ.
Events- Want to represent Lu's Labs at one of our dog friendly events? Or perhaps you want to assist with our annual walk? We can match you up to the event that is best suited for you.
