Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers of all ages are the backbone of our organization.

Volunteers, working both inside and outside of the shelter, are a vital part of our organization. With their help, we are able to meet our mission of saving homeless pets! You, too, can be a part of this mission and join a team of compassionate animal lovers.

What does it take?

First, there are a few questions you really need to ask yourself:

  • Do I enjoy interacting with people?
  • Am I ready to make a firm commitment to the animals today and give my time?
  • Am I at least 11 years old?
  • Am I ready to roll up my sleeves and jump in?

If you have answered YES to all of the questions, then you are ready to fill out a Volunteer application.


*Please note if you need service hour credit for school, court, or church please submit a Community Service Application.

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Bathing Animals
  • Feeding Cats
  • Walking Dogs
  • Answering Phones
  • Cleaning Cages
  • Washing Dishes
  • Coin Can Collecting
  • Transporting Animals to Vets
  • Building Maintenance
  • Working at Fund Raising Events

Youth volunteers 11 and 12 years old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Volunteers 13 years old and up can work without a parent or legal guardian present. Youth volunteers can help clean cat cages, feed and water cats, bathe puppies and wash dishes.
