Hi- I volunteer at the Washington Humane Society shelter on NY Ave NE. They also have one on Georgia Ave NW. You do have to sign up and go through a certain number of trainings and hours logged before you’re allowed to take the dogs out on your own, but it doesn’t take very long, probably just a few Saturdays if you’re committed and organized. Its definitely worth it though, now whenever I go I get to play with the doggies for as long as I like!
