We could NOT function or survive without the hundreds of hours of work from our cherished volunteers. Volunteers have an enormous impact on the health and well-being of our pets. The investment is minimal but the return is immeasurable!

Volunteer Holding a Dog

Volunteers Help With:

  • Daily Shelter Activities - The center sees thousands of animals each year. Often these pets need socialization, bathing or just a kind word to warm their hearts. With limited staff and new pets being brought in daily, the need for people to walk dogs, clean cages and even to help with adoptions is ever increasing.
  • Special Events - Offsite adoptions and other special events are almost always staffed by volunteers. There is nothing like knowing that you made the difference for that 1 pet!

Volunteer Opportunities

We are always looking for help in finding them good adoptive homes. Volunteers are an essential part of the daily activities in our shelter to assist with socializing, walking, cleaning, and playing with the animals. Citizens must be age 18 or older in order to volunteer at our shelter.

Take a look at the links to the left on how to volunteer and reasons to volunteer. We would love to see you (so would the pets)!
