Volunteer Roles

Volunteer Roles:
Do you love helping fill an animal’s hungry belly?  Giving a dog her daily exercise, cuddling a kitten, or greeting visitors as they enter our Shelter?  We have many unique and fulfilling volunteer positions to fit your skills and interests!
Most of our volunteer positions require a regular weekly or every-other-week shift.  While we make every attempt to place volunteers in their preferred roles, not every position may be available at the time you apply.  However, the highlighted roles are considered “high need” and we require an initial 6 hour commitment in one of these “high need” roles. 

We will begin taking general applications again on Wednesday, May 13th. Thank you for your interest in volunteering!
