Volunteers are advocates, ambassadors and educators. We are building a better community for people and animals through their networks and influence.

Many volunteers serve as educators to students, advocates for stronger laws, foster care providers and as pet-people teams at hospitals. Others prefer to work at the shelter caring for animals or with administration. We could not do all we do without help in every area.

Parent-child teams with children, ages 8 to 13, must attend trainings and volunteer together. Children must have their parent accompany them at all times during their volunteer shift.

Volunteers must be 14 and older to work independently at the shelter. They must be able to work a 3-hour shift weekly for a minimum of three months.

Youth, who are not interested in a long-term commitment, and are in need of meeting community service project requirements for school must only apply here.

Volunteers are also needed at these animal welfare groups.
