Working with animals is a very rewarding experience. Whether you are available once a week or a few times a year, we have an activity in which you can participate. Some of our activities require several hours weekly and some a few hours a month. If your schedule is extremely heavy, we even have ways in which you can help us once or twice a year (e.g., fund-raising events such as our annual yard sale).
The greatest need for volunteers is working as an animal caretaker once a week. Depending on the shift, it can last between an hour to two hours. During that time, the caretaker would let the dogs outside and cats out of their cages, clean the kennels & cages, do laundry, socialize the animals and during the A.M. & P.M. feed shifts, feed the animals.
We have four daily caretaker shifts: A.M. Feed (7-9 a.m.), Playtime (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.), P.M. Feed (4-6:30 p.m.) and Late Night Potty Break (8-11 p.m.). Substitute Animal Caretakers are also welcome. Volunteers under 18 years of age should have an adult family member train and work a shift with them. Anyone under 18 years of age must be under adult supervision while working at the shelter. To work independently, volunteers must be 18 years of age.
