The talents of our compassionate and generous volunteers help keep our doors open. Volunteers are actively involved in the general care of the animals including walking/exercising, socializing, grooming, and cleaning kennels. Volunteers are also involved in special projects, events, humane education, offsite outreach programs and in-home foster care.
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to volunteer without a parent or guardian. Children 13 through 15 may volunteer to socialize puppies and kittens, with a parent on-site who is also a volunteer. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted to walk dogs.

Our volunteer opportunities offer something for every interest. Whether you'd like to answer phones, walk dogs, socialize cats or help at special events, there's always something to do.
When permanent adoption isn't an option, or you would like to help a special needs pet,
invite an animal needing TLC into your home for a short visit or long term vacation. We
always have wonderful dogs, cats, puppies and kittens just waiting for the chance to brighten
your life. Just let us know what you are willing and able to do and we will find the perfect
match for your family.
