Volunteers Make a Difference!

Join like-minded people and make new friends, both two and four-legged!  When you give the gift of your time and affection, you'll get back more than you give!

How can I help?

The shelter is always seeking additional volunteers* to care for our animals and help find them new homes. Committed volunteers are essential! There are many ways to get involved, including walking the dogs, socializing with the cats, clerical projects, morning feeding/cleaning, events and fundraising, fostering animals and much more about volunteeringView Volunteering Opportunities.      

How Do I Get Involved? *

From 18 to senior citizen, the first step is to attend a General Orientation Class. View Orientation Class Details.   

*Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate school or court-ordered community service credits.    
*If you are not over 18, or are seeking community service credits, you may find interesting and educational volunteer opportunities available at the following volunteer matching websites.
