Volunteers provide love, reassurance, and caring to our homeless animals through simple contact and handling. This helps maintain the vital animal-human relationship. Additionally, if desired, trained volunteers can teach dogs basic obedience commands and reinforce previous training that makes them more appealing to prospective families.

Dog Walking

Dogs older than six months of age love to be walked! Volunteers provide dogs with needed breaks as well as an opportunity for housebroken dogs to maintain their skills!


Volunteers promote and match animals with prospective owners. If you enjoy marketing and have a knowledge of animals, many wonderful pets would benefit from your expertise.


Volunteers can help our animals look their best with a simple bath and grooming. The time for additional socialization is an added benefit.

Kennel Cleaning

The staff welcomes volunteers to assist them cleaning the kennels throughout the day.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
