Volunteer Opportunities

If you have a few hours each day, week, or month and would like to volunteer, please complete our volunteer application form or stop by and pick one up! We would love to have you at the Shelter and welcome as little or as much time as you wish to spend. Volunteers get to do all of the fun stuff like walking dogs, running play groups, letting the cats out to play, washing puppies, grooming dogs, and sitting with shy dogs who just need a friend. We are thrilled to have volunteers here every day of the week save Sunday. Also, as we do not euthanize for length of stay, you can rest assured that the animals you played with today will be here tomorrow (unless they’re adopted)! Please come out and make even one animal’s day a little brighter.

If you have a big heart and some space in your home, please consider volunteering to foster a Shelter dog or cat. In many cases we have shy dogs, baby kittens, and others who need a little TLC prior to going up for adoption. The Shelter provides all of the food, medicines, vet care and supplies for fostered animals. Foster care can be easy or challenging depending upon what type of situation you sign up for; it is totally your choice. Sometimes we are just very crowded and need temporary homes for healthy, well-adjusted dogs and cats. Sometimes we have dogs being treated for Heartworm who need to be kept crated, quiet, and hand-walked. Sometimes, we have orphaned kittens who need to be bottle fed. Please fill out a volunteer application, give us a call and come on out to see who needs you now!
