Volunteer applications may be obtained during Shelter hours of operation. Ages 13 – 15 may volunteer with a parent/guardian. Ages 16 – 18 may volunteer with parent/guardian written permission. As we communicate mostly by email, an email address and phone number is required to volunteer. See available opportunities below!
If you love working with the animals or would rather help in other ways, we have something for everyone. Invest your community service hours helping our shelter pets get adopted.
Volunteers can work with the shelter every day of the week from 7:30 a to 6 p and assist the public Monday - Saturday from 12-6p,
Please join our teams of friendly, caring volunteers that love to help our shelter pets find homes. Together we are making a difference.
