Volunteers work side-by-side with shelter staff, and provide much needed support for programs that improve the quality of life for shelter animals. They allow us to achieve excellence in all that we do for the animals, making the community a better place for both people and pets. From helping with daily feeding and cleaning, to socializing and providing mental and behavioral enrichment for our dogs and cats, to assisting customers in locating a lost pet, our volunteers help in countless ways every day of the year. Our schedule and program requirements may vary throughout the year, and program availability is based on the needs of our animals and customers.
Foster Care Program:
The benefits can be extremely rewarding - you’ll receive unconditional love from your foster animal and the joy of knowing that you were able to help save a shelter animal.

A state-required home visit will be conducted before being approved for this position.
