Our Volunteer Program
We have a dedicated group of volunteers assisting us in our daily operations but we are always ready to welcome more individuals into our programs.
Inside Volunteer Application Process
Applications are being accepted for inside volunteering. This opportunity mainly consists of cleaning the animals and the building. This is always an ongoing process at our shelter and we truly rely on volunteers to assist the animals with this! Please email email@example.com for more information.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at our shelter, we have several ways for you to be involved:
- If you are at least 15 years old, you might consider becoming an indoor volunteer. You can be involved in cleaning cages and feeding our animals. This is a great opportunity for high school students to complete their community hours. We will also accept applications for co-op education placements.
- If you are at least 21 years old, you might consider becoming a volunteer dog-walker. Dogs that are awaiting adoption enjoy being walked and having play time in our enclosed yard. We would love for each dog to be out in the fresh air 3 times a day, 7 days a week. As you might imagine, this requires a large team of dedicated volunteers.
- You might be interested in providing foster care, in your own home. Some of the animals that arrive at our shelter are not ready to be adopted into new homes just yet. They may be injured, ill, too young, too small, non-socialized, pregnant, orphaned or not housebroken. To keep these animals at the shelter to rehabilitate them is not always in their best interest. That's where a foster care volunteer comes in.
I'm interested! What do I do now?
The first step in the process of becoming a volunteer is to complete our
"Volunteer Application" or "Foster Care Application".
Applications may be mailed, faxed or hand-delivered to our shelter.
