Our shelter succeeds through the dedicated teamwork of our diverse community of volunteers. We are united in our common mission to improve the lives and welfare of our furry friends. We each bring our unique talents to the task in ways that our own busy schedules permit. There is much to be done, so please consider joining us.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
On a continuing daily basis, the shelter houses on-site a number of cats and dogs being prepared for or ready for adoption. Morning and evening shifts of volunteers provide daily feeding, cleaning, medical care, and valuable human stimulation/playtime for the cats and dogs. Volunteers take all the dogs out for daily walks in the park. In addition, some animals are fostered in volunteers' homes depending on the individual needs of our guests or available space in the shelter.
Volunteers also respond to visitors' phone calls, texts and emails inquiring about adoptions, seeking information and reporting found or lost animals. In addition, members of the shelter team host visitor appointments to meet and greet our animals, arrange adoptions, staff adoption events, transport animals to and from vet visits or other shelters, wash animal laundry (towels, bedding, etc) weekly, raise funds through donations and events, write grants, maintain social media/websites, manage the business details, maintain animal records, bake cookies for everyone else, repair things when they break, etc.
Our furry friends need your time and special skills. Please consider volunteering with us!
