Volunteering is great way to support your community! Volunteers will need to be 18 years or older to volunteer alone. All volunteers under 18 must have a parent or guardian present.
We are always looking for consistent volunteers to walk and play with our dogs. We occasionally have the need for volunteers to walk dogs with specific needs that will require additional training. You will never be expected to handle animals that you are not comfortable with. We have a color grading system that corresponds to the level of difficulty a dog may be to handle or walk.
Throughout the day we allow several cats at a time to roam the cat room. We need gentle and patient individuals who will cuddle and play with them so they can get use to people.
Office and Adoption Support:
We often need help in the afternoons with administrative tasks, helping the public get animals in and out of their kennels, and working with the public to find the right animal fit for their home. These volunteers will need to be willing to handle our adoptable pets and feel comfortable answering questions from the public.
With another adoption event always around the corner, we need people willing to set up, attend, and tear down event equipment. These events can be inside or outside and usually have a large turnout. Typically we bring available animals for adoption and may need volunteers to help answer questions or handle the animals.
If any of these options sound like something you may be interested in, we would like to invite you to complete the Volunteer Application linked below.
If you have any questions please feel free to call the office at (269) 927-5648.
