Volunteer at CARE

Volunteers help CARE in many ways; helping out at our adoption centers, helping out at eventstranslating documents between English and Korean, taking photographs, and more

To all past, present and future volunteers, our heartfelt thanks for your hard work and dedication.

Help Out At Our Adoption Centers We cannot accept volunteers at the adoption centers under the age of 18

Our volunteers help out at our Twaegyero and Dapshimni adoption centers. However, the work is slightly different at each center.

Dapshimni Adoption Center

Dapshimni Adoption Center

At the Dapshimni center, volunteers help out not only by taking the dogs for a walk, but also by cleaning the center. Because of the strenuous nature of the work, volunteers only work for up to two hours. There are two volunteer shifts. The morning shift is from 9:30 to 12:00, and the afternoon shift is from 15:00 to 18:00.

Volunteers on both shifts usually start by washing the cats’ and dogs’ food and water bowls, cleaning the dogs’ kennels, and cleaning the cats room. This takes the majority of the time, especially cleaning the kennels.

Then they take one of the dogs for a walk usually for between 40 minutes to one hour, depending on the weather. However, if it is very hot or very cold, the dogs may be walked for less than 30 minutes. The center staff will recommend the walking time.

Volunteers will also play with the dogs that cannot go for a walk due to disability or special care needs.

Twaegyero Adoption Center

Twaegyero Adoption Center

In the Twaegyero center, volunteers only walk the dogs. Unlike Dapshimni, the Twaegyero center is small, so it gets crowded if there are too many people in the center cleaning, and this will disturb the dogs too much.

In both centers, volunteers do not prepare the animals’ food. This is because there are many animals who need special care and have specific dietary requirements, which it would take volunteers too long to learn.

Regardless of the tasks they perform, all volunteers play important roles in the upkeep of the adoption centers, and the welfare and happiness of the animals in them.

Help Out At Events

Most of the events and volunteer opportunities are announced in our CARE Volunteer Community Facebook group

There you can also talk to current and former volunteers to find out more about what volunteering at CARE is all about.

We hope to see you soon.
