We are super excited to see you at this years Open House and all the positive response we have received. We’re not afraid of a little rain, however, thunder and lightning are predicted tomorrow, which is another story. Safety is our main concern for everyone and all our four-legged friends. Due to this, we will be rescheduling our Open House to Saturday, October 21st. from 11 am – 2 pm. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we hope to see you next weekend. Fingers crossed the sun will be shining.

Group/Corporate Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in bringing your organization to Mackenzie’s!

Corporate, school, team, church, or other groups are welcome to schedule a day of volunteering on a project or task. One-day volunteer groups are not permitted to work directly with the dogs because of the extensive training required.

Some examples of projects could include

  • Groundskeeping
  • Painting
  • Helping with small building projects
  • Clearing pathways or trails
  • Assembling Mailings
  • Sorting donations

Since working with the dogs directly requires orientation and training, these projects do not include hands-on contact with our dogs, but they are all very important to us and the work that we do! If you are interested in working directly with our dogs, please consider applying for a volunteer position.

Group guidelines

If your group is interested in helping to form a work party

  • Your group should consist of at least five people.
  • Any children in the group should be at least 8 years old. Children 8 to 18 should plan on attending with a parent or guardian.
  • Please commit to volunteering at least three hours to make it worth the time and effort it takes to coordinate a group activity.
  • Please make arrangements at least four weeks in advance of the date you are requesting. Keep in mind that not all dates will be available and projects may be seasonal.

Schedule your group

To arrange for your group to volunteer at Mackenzie’s, have the leader complete the Corporate/Group Volunteer Application. Thank you very much for your support and willingness to help!
