The Petique is a fun place to volunteer! There’s a lot of dog interaction, and they’re happy dogs on their way home. One of the things we do is fit collars, and sometimes harnesses for adopted dogs. Dogs KNOW that they’re going home. You get tail wags and kisses!

If you’re afraid of falling in love and taking them all home, the Petique is for you! You don’t have any reason to go in the kennels or cat rooms if you choose not to. All of our interactions are with just adopted animals, or people shopping for pets at home.
