Volunteer Information

Our goal here at the shelter is to see every animal reunited with their owners, adopted or transferred out to a dedicated rescue group. The shelter accepts volunteers 6 days a week Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm . You must fill out a volunteer application and then you may come whenever we are open.

Volunteers will be allowed to bathe animals, walk dogs, socialize with the animals, clean cat and dog kennels. We are happy to have you help out with any shelter functions you are comfortable working with such as transporting animals to rescue organizations and adoption events, after you have gotten used to things. We are also in need of foster families to foster dogs and cats from the shelter until we can find them a forever home. Our volunteers are an invaluable resource and we thank them all for their service!

Here are the links to our online applications ( one specified for individuals and one specified for groups/organizations). All forms will need to be filled out before you begin volunteer work. Please read all Policy and Liability Waivers and Release of Liability statements associated with the applications carefully. If you have any questions please contact us!

Donations are always welcome.  To see a list of items needed click our Shelter Wish List.
