Volunteer to help the Animals!
There are endless ways you can help our homeless animals live better lives. We always have a shortage of homes, so we need loving adopters. However, if you're not quite ready to do that, we can always use help at the shelter, event assistance, donations of supplies, and financial contributions.

Opportunities Available
Volunteers are critical to the success of the shelter. Our staff provides for the basic needs of the animals on a daily basis, but they can only do so much and we need volunteers to fill in the gaps.

Become a Volunteer and Get Added to our Database!
Simply fill out our Application for Awesome Volunteers below (follow the big yellow arrow)

But First - Please take some time to look over the volunteer information. If you want to help in a way we haven't thought of yet, and you have a talent or skill you'd like to share let us know.

Animal Care
Work directly with the pets to keep them clean, safe, happy and healthy. Job tasks include:
Cleaning kennels/cages 
Exercising/walking/socializing animals 
Bathing, brushing or grooming animals. 
Training animals. 
Animal Care Volunteers complete a training program that consists of basic orientation and instruction in animal handling procedures from the staff.  
This job is critical- it keeps the animals calmer, cleaner, happier, 

Community Outreach & Education
Plan and/or assist at outreach and education events around the community at fairs, schools, scout meetings, craft shows and other venues. These volunteers work to promote our mission and services and to teach the humane treatment of animals. If you are an outgoing person who likes working with the public, this could be the job for you!

Youth Volunteers​
Children must be at least 14 years old, or accompanied by a parent or guardian and have their volunteer agreements and waivers signed by the parent/guardian.

Create Your Own Position
Create a brochure. Create a fundraising campaign for a special project. Perform office work. Build (we have lots to do). Paint. Landscape. Host a garage sale. Teach a shelter dog some manners. Plan a fundraiser. Work at a community education booth during a local fair. What talents do you have? If you can do it, chances are, we need it!
