Volunteers are Special!

Volunteer orientation is the second Saturday of every month at 11am. You will learn the layout of the facility, safety tips, how to handle cats and dogs and begin to understand shelter operations. You will be learning a lot and most times new volunteers may feel overwhelmed; it is not geared to just have our volunteers play with puppies, it is to get the dogs and cats into permanent homes. 


Children under 18 must be supervised at all times by an adult over 21 years of age. 


Please wear proper attire. Be comfortable in jeans, shirts, sweatshirts and tennis shoes; no sandals or flip-flops please. For safety purposes we suggest no large hoops or dangling earrings. Be prepared to get a little dirty and have fun doing it!


Volunteers are also needed for other tasks that are not directly related to working with the animals. Administrative tasks, facility maintenance, fundraising phone calls, event help, etc, just to name a few.


Regardless of the task, all volunteers need to go through the basic orientation class. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any questions you may have.
