Who can volunteer?
How do volunteers help?
Volunteers help in a wide variety of ways. They help us clean, do laundry, restock food and litter. They also help with socializing our animals through dog walking and training as well as working with animals who are scared to be more comfortable around humans.
Individuals and groups are all welcome to volunteer! Volunteers must be at least 12 years of age, and those under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. If you are under the age of 18, you must get parental permission prior to volunteering.
I want to volunteer! How do I start?
If you're interested in volunteering at the shelter, please let us know by filling out the Volunteer Application at the top of this page. We will reach out to you shortly after to find out more about your areas of interest.
Can I just show up?
We encourage you to set a time with our volunteer coordinator to ensure we have staff available to help you learn, especially your first time volunteering. If you'd like to work in a group, setting a time helps us coordinate jobs that can accommodate the full group.
What should I wear?
I'm already a volunteer! How do I sign up for more shifts?
We suggest comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty or torn.
If you have volunteered with us before, you can use the Volunteer Portal link at the top of this page to schedule shifts. With questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
