Volunteering Program


We Love Our Volunteers!

Being a volunteer offers many rewards, both intangible and concrete. Time and talents from volunteers is needed to supplement the work of our staff. It’s a win-win!

Volunteers not only gain the satisfaction garnered from the giving of themselves and their time to a worthy cause, they also engage in an ongoing learning process about animal behaviors, animal science, and animal care, discovering how to manage pets effectively in the pet adoption environment.

Volunteering is a serious undertaking that requires commitment and caring. Volunteer opportunities include helping at the adoption center, working on fund raising events and making presentations regarding the agency’s services to businesses, schools, service clubs and organizations.
