We could not do what we do as an organization without the help of our volunteers. If you are looking for a fulfilling volunteer opportunity where your work will be truly valued, please review our current volunteer openings.

New Volunteers

Are you a perspective volunteer looking to apply for a volunteering opportunity?  Please click here to complete the Volunteer Application form so we can match you with the best role at the shelter!  You will be contacted by phone by our Community Engagement Coordinator within one to two weeks of receiving your application to discuss opportunities.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

  • Age Requirements: Applicants must be at least 14 years old to volunteer.  Youth volunteers ages 14 to 17 must have a parent/legal guardian permission and waiver signed by the adult.  Additionally, youth volunteers ages 14 and 15 must volunteer with a parent/legal guardian present during each volunteering commitment.

​​

  • Must be enthusiastic to learn and receive comprehensive hands-on training for animal care-related activities.

  • Our Volunteer Program requires a time commitment of a minimum of at least two hours, twice a month for a time period of at least 6 months, and is not intended for short-term commitments.  We ask this of volunteers since it takes significant resources to onboard and train new volunteers.

  • Not all volunteer tasks may be available if they are already filled.  While we try to accommodate first-choice preferences for opportunities we aim to fill positions we need the most help with and match each volunteer with an appropriate role.
