Are you wondering what’s involved in volunteering at the kennel? Our kennel volunteers walk the dogs, brush their coats, play with them, prepare their food, feed them, wash their dishes, clean their crates, sweep the floor, and give them lots of love; and sometimes our volunteers just hang out at the beach together.  GPAC is a registered charity and a 100% volunteer-driven organization. We are always in need of new volunteers. You don’t have to own a greyhound and no experience is necessary. An experienced GPAC volunteer will provide you with any required training in any area. 


Our kennel volunteers are what help us continue to bring new dogs to the kennel and help them find forever homes in Atlantic Canada. If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, please consider donating some time to GPAC. Below are some listed duties that our kennel volunteers would be responsible to complete per shift. If you would like to find out more information on volunteering please email volunteer@gpac.ca
